Paper Abstract

In this paper, we propose a new non-homogeneous Markov random field model based on fuzzy membership to resolve over-segmentation caused by traditional MRF model in the application of Brain MRI segmentation. Herein, we use fuzzy membership to estimate the parameters in the model. Simulated brain MRIs with the noise of different intensity and real brain MRIs are utilized in experiments. The results illustrate our method effectively reduces over-segmentation and improves final segmentation results and precision, and its performance is more powerful than that of kernel-based fuzzy c-means clustering algorithm and the traditional MRF model.
