Abstract


Alzheimer is defined as the loss of mental functions such as thinking, memory, and reasoning that is severe enough to interfere with a person's daily functioning. The appearance of Alzheimer's Disease symptoms are resulted based on which part of the brain has a variety of infection or damage. Therefore, MRI is the best biomedical instrumentation to detect Alzheimer's Disease. For that reason, this paper proposes a novel method for detecting Alzheimer's Disease in MRI images using thresholding and morphology. In this paper, we analyzed 20 MRI images collected from OASIS brains database to detect the threshold that will allow our program to automatically detect Alzheimer's Disease existence in MRI images. Automatically Image Classification is one of the challenging problems of our recent era. So, we have implemented and tested our proposed technique and the end results have 98% accuracy.

Author Keywords: Alzheimer's Disease, MRI, biomedical images, image processing, thresholding, masking, morphological operators.
