Abstract

A network structure for segmenting magnetic resonance medical images is proposed. The incorporation of a probabilistic neural network structure into the segmentation process allows decisions regarding the characterization of each pixel to be made in a probabilistic manner, thus reducing the effect of an incorrect decision early in the process on the final segmentation result. The probabilistic neural network facilitates the generation of likelihood estimates for use in an iterative segmentation process, which was shown to produce good segmentation results on real magnetic resonance images.
