Precise segmentation of stroke lesions from brain magnetic resonance (MR) images poses a challenging task in automated diagnosis. In this paper, we proposed a new method called watershed-based lesion segmentation algorithm (WLSA), which is a novel intensity-based segmentation technique used to delineate infarct lesion in diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) MR images of the brain. The algorithm was tested on a series of 142 real-time images collected from different stroke patients reported at IMS… CONTINUE READING
