Image Segmentation is the process of partitioning a digital image into non-overlapping distinct regions, so that significant information about the image could be retrieved and various analysis could be performed on that segmented image. The aim of this study is to reduce the noise, enhance the image quality by considering the spatial information without losing any important information about the images and perform the segmentation process in noise free environment. K-Means clustering technique is used for the purpose of segmentation of brain tissue classes which is considered more efficient and effective for the segmentation of an image. We tested the proposed technique on different types of brain MR images which generates good results and proved robust against noise. Conclusion had been concluded at the end of this study.
