In this paper, we propose a color-based segmentation method that uses the K-means clustering technique to track tumor objects in magnetic resonance (MR) brain images. The key concept in this color-based segmentation algorithm with K-means is to convert a given gray-level MR image into a color space image and then separate the position of tumor objects from other items of an MR image by using K-means clustering and histogram-clustering. Experiments demonstrate that the method can successfully… CONTINUE READING
