Skull stripping is a major phase in MRI brain imaging applications and it refers to the removal of the brain’s non-cerebral tissues. The main problem in skull-stripping is the segmentation of the non-cerebral and the intracranial tissues due to their homogeneity intensities. Numerous techniques were applied in the studies of skull stripping, most common are region growing and mathematical morphology. This paper investigated the strength and weaknesses of these two methods on three types of MRI… CONTINUE READING
