Abstract

This paper presents a new algorithm for fuzzy segmentation of MR brain images. Starting from the standard FCM [1], 12] and its bias-corrected version BCFCM [3] algorithm, by splitting up the two major steps of the latter, and by introducing a new factor γ, the amount of required calculations is considerably reduced. The algorithm provides good-quality segmented 2-D brain slices a very quick way, which makes it an excellent tool to support a virtual brain endoscope.
