Abstract

This paper proposed the ultrasound liver image enhancement based on watershed segmentation method. Image segmentation is an important problem in medical image processing fields. The focus of this study is to enhance the region of liver based on watershed algorithm of segmentation and visualization technique. The MATLAB is used as a tool for this study. The watershed segmentation entirely relay presented the good result base on the contrast of the image. In this study, an ultrasound image is transformed into a binary image using the threshold method, which means that the color of the output image appears only black and white. After the image is converted into binary, the image is modified using Watershed technique together with the visualization process. The result is really helpful in medical diagnostics.
