ABSTRACT
The paper presents an efficient brain MRI region based segmentation technique that accurately classifies the abnormal tissue from normal tissue. All methods are used for noisy and blurred images and perform segmentation in improved way. A comparison of three different brain MRI segmentation methods, viz., improved level segmentation method, local region based active contour and variational level set formulation method along with their comparison and their results.These methods are applied on both 2d as well as 3d images
