An efficient segmentation of MRI images using different methods of wavelet transform

Ram Krishna Deshmukh, Yogesh S. Bahendwar


Segmentation is the process of separate an observed image into its homogeneous or constituent regions. The goal of segmentation is to simplify or change the representation of an image into something that is more meaningful and easier to analyze. It is important in many computer vision, medical field and image processing application. In computer vision, segmentation refers to the process of partitioning a digital image into multiple regions. Spinal cut MR Images have a number of features, especially the following: Firstly, they are statistically simple; MR Images are theoretically piecewise constant with a small number of classes. Secondly, they have relatively high contrast between different tissues. Additionally, image segmentation has applications separate from computer vision; it is frequently used to aid in isolating or removing specific portions of an image. Image segmentation is typically used to locate objects and boundaries in images. The problem becomes more compound while segmenting noisy images. Segmentation of medical imagery is a challenging task due to the complexity of the images, as well as to the absence of models of the anatomy that fully capture the possible deformations in each structure. Spinal cut tissue is a particularly complex structure, and its segmentation is an important step for derivation of computerized anatomical atlases, as well as pre- and intra-operative guidance for therapeutic intervention. Watershed based image segmentation using wavelet model. Image segmentation, feature extraction and image components classification form a fundamental problem in many application of multi-dimensional signal processing. The paper is devoted to the use of wavelet transform for feature extraction associated with image pixels and their classification in comparison with the watershed transform. A specific attention is paid to the use of Haar, db wavelet or other transform as a tool for image compression and image pixels feature extraction. Proposed algorithm ‘bio’ & different wavelet is verified for simulated images and applied for a selected MR image, using image processing in the MATLAB platform.
