Abstract -
Multiple Sclerosis is an autoimmune demylinating disease that occurs in brain white matter. It forms number of bright spots which appears and disappears with the period of dimension that initiates the researcher to find out the progression detection of the disease. Different classifiers are studied and applied on the segmented image and implemented on GUI Matlab which categories the disease into different classes depending on disease progression. The six classifiers are linear classifier, Quadratic classifier, Linear diagonal classifier, Quadratic Diagonal classifier, Mahalanobis classifier and K-NN classifier. The comparative study reveals that a KNN classifier gives more accuracy than others in its initial stages of the disease which helps in early stage detection of the disease.
