Abstract

We present a preliminary design and experimental results of tumor objects tracking method for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) brain images (some stock images) that utilizes color-converted segmentation algorithm with K-means clustering technique. The method is capable of solving unable exactly contoured lesion objects problem in MRI image by adding the color-based segmentation operation. The key idea of color-converted segmentation algorithm with K-means is to solve the given MRI image by converting the input gray-level image into a color space image and operating the image labeled by cluster index. In this paper we investigate the possibility of employing this approach for image-based-MRI application. The application of the proposed method for tracking tumor is demonstrated to help pathologists distinguish exactly lesion size and region.
