Abstract

The corpus callosum is one of the most important structures in human brain. Most of the neurological disorders reflect directly or indirectly on the morphological features of Corpus Callosum. The mid-sagittal brain Magnetic Resonance images fully describe the anatomical structure of corpus callosum. Often considered challenging task of segmenting Corpus Callosum from Magnetic Resonance images has proved the importance of studies on Corpus Callosum segmentation. In this paper, a K-means clustering algorithm is proposed for segmentation of the region of Corpus Callosum. The results of segmentation can be used further for feature extraction and classification for medical diagnosis.
