Paper Abstract

Segmentation in Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) images is a widely studied problem, and techniques (supervised and unsupervised) are discussed in the literature. The basic approaches to image segmentation are based upon: (a) boundary representation, (b) regional characteristics and (c) a combination of boundary and region-based features. In this paper, we report classification of brain tissue based objects employing one of combination of boundary and region-based features as wavelet modified generic Fourier descriptor (WGFD) technique. This technique have been applied to a database consisting of 3 different class's tissues, each class consist of 50 shapes. The Euclidean distance has been calculated as a similarity measure parameter for tissue shape classification. The classification results have been carried out and it is inferred that WGFD performs for brain tissue classification. For brain tissue recognition, a simulation experiment employing hybrid correlator architecture has been carried out. We have used Wavelet modified maximum average correlation hight (MACH) filter for hybrid correlator. Mexican-hat wavelet has used to synthesize the wavelet MACH filter for simulation experiment.
