Abstract:- Skull Stripping aims to segment the brain tissue (cortex and cerebellum) from the skull and non-brain tissues in brain MR images . In this paper, a comparison evaluation of two widely used methods BET(Brain Extraction Tool) and BSE(Brain Surface Extraction) in brain image segmentation is presented. Performance analysis of segmentation methods integrated with the latest versions of FSL and BrainSuite is considered. Results obtained in this paper can be utilized to assist the users for selecting the appropriate method for brain tissue segmentation.
