Pattern Recognition and Deep Learning Models to Overcome the Problems of Imbalanced Data and Fuzzy Borders for Brain Tumors Segmentation

Aims and Scope

Accurately localizing and recognizing brain tumors is dependent on precise segmentation of the tumor regions. However, due to the problem of imbalanced data and variability in the dimensions, locations, and shapes of tumors, achieving precise segmentation of brain tumor areas remains a challenging task. One approach to enhance the performance of brain tumor segmentation tasks is through the use of pattern recognition and deep learning models. As a result, deep learning models are widely employed to provide a more comprehensive understanding of brain tumors and improve the accuracy of segmentation results. The purpose of this topic, more specifically, was to develop a suitable approach to segment brain tumor parts (enhancing, edema, and core areas) in the presence of imbalance and lack of data, fuzzy borders, and variation in illumination.
