Abstract: The fundamental motivation behind this study is to identify the brain hemorrhage and to give accurate treatment so that death rate because of brain hemorrhage can be reduced. This project investigates the possibility of diagnosing brain hemorrhage using an image segmentation of CT scan images using watershed method and feeding of the appropriate inputs extracted from the brain CT image to an artificial neural network for classification. The output generated as the type of brain hemorrhages, can be used to verify expert diagnosis and also as learning tool for trainee radiologists to minimize errors in current methods.
