Abstract:


Objective: The drive of this research activity is to report a colorization method to enhance the visualization, cell characterization and interpretation of brain Magnetic Resonance (MR) images, indicative of the underlying physical density of bio tissues.

Background: In daily health care environments, medical scanners are being used to generate gray scale images of anatomical structures.

Method: Severity of diseases is determined from this luminance component only. Irrefutably, if this high dimensional gray scale, medical data is visualized in colored versions, the definitive and more accurate the pathological assessment process will be. A number of methods have been reported to represent brain Magnetic Resonance Images (MRI) data in color with the cost of computational complexity. In this research work, an efficient method of colorization using frequencies from visible range of color spectrum, has been proposed to embody the variations and sensitivity of the brain MRI images.

Conclusion: Side by side, visual comparison based on multiple MRI sequences of identical subjects, by domain experts, proved adequate success and fruitfulness of the story.

Keywords:

Brain, MRI, enhancement, colorization of soft tissues, gray scale images, visualization.
