Hybrid enhanced ICA & KSVM based brain tumor image segmentation

Thrivikram Bathini, Baswaraj Gadgay


Medical image processing is an important aspect in diagnosis and treatment strategy. The tremendous volume of medical data has accelerated the need for automated analysis of this image, more so in the case Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). An improved K-means algorithm and EM algorithm have been combined in the proposed approach to produce a hybrid strategy for better clustering and segmentation using Enhanced ICA. A classifier for based on Support Vector Machine (SVM) has been formulated and employed for the classification of brain tumors in Magnetic Resonance Images (MRI). The proposed SVM classifier used a kernel in the form of Gaussian radial basis function kernel (GRB kernel) to improve the classifier performance. The performance of the classifier has been validated through expert clinical opinion and calculation of performance measures. The results amply illustrate the suitability of the proposed classifier.
