Cerebral MRI Images, Mathematical Morphology, Tumor.
This paper introduces an efficient detection of brain tumor from cerebral MRI images. The methodology consists of two steps: enhancement and segmentation. To improve the quality of images and limit the risk of distinct regions fusion in the segmentation phase an enhancement process is applied. We applied mathematical morphology to increase the contrast in MRI images and to segment MRI images. Some of experimental results on brain images show the feasibility and the performance of the proposed approach.
