Classification of brain MRI images using support vector machine with various Kernels.

An enhanced classification system for classification of brain tumor from MR images using association of kernels with support vector machine is developed and presented in this paper. Oriented Rician Noise Reduction Anisotropic Diffusion filter is used for image denoising. A modified fuzzy c-means algorithm termed as Penalized fuzzy c-means algorithm is used for image segmentation. The texture and Tamura features are extracted using GSDM and Tamura method. Genetic algorithm with Joint entropy is adopted for feature selection. The classification is done by support vector machine along with various kernels and the performance is validated. A classification accuracy of 98.83% is obtained using SVM with GRBF kernel.
