Abstract

ALEGRO, Maryana de Carvalho; AMARO JUNIOR, Edson  and  LOPES, Rosei de Deus. Computerized brain tumor segmentation in magnetic resonance imaging. Einstein (São Paulo) [online]. 2012, vol.10, n.2, pp. 158-163. ISSN 1679-4508.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1679-45082012000200008.

OBJECTIVE: To propose an automatic brain tumor segmentation system. METHODS: The system used texture characteristics as its main source of information for segmentation. RESULTS: The mean correct match was 94% of correspondence between the segmented areas and ground truth. CONCLUSION: Final results showed that the proposed system was able to find and delimit tumor areas without requiring any user interaction.

Keywords : Magnetic resonance imaging; Image processing, computer-assisted; Brain neoplasms.
