The automated brain tumor segmentation methods are challenging due to the diverse nature of tumors. Recently, the graph based spectral clustering method is utilized for brain tumor segmentation to make high-quality segmentation output. In this paper, a new Walsh Hadamard Transform (WHT) texture for superpixel based spectral clustering is proposed for segmentation of a brain tumor from multimodal MRI images. First, the selected kernels of WHT are utilized for creating texture saliency maps and it becomes the input for the Simple Linear Iterative Clustering (SLIC) algorithm, to generate more precise texture based superpixels. Then the texture superpixels become nodes in the graph of spectral clustering for segmenting brain tumors of MRI images. Finally, the original members of superpixels are recovered to represent Complete Tumor (CT), Tumor Core (TC) and Enhancing Tumor (ET) tissues. The observational results are taken out on BRATS 2015 datasets and evaluated using the Dice Score (DS), Hausdorff Distance (HD) and Volumetric Difference (VD) metrics. The proposed method produces competitive results than other existing clustering methods. © 2019 AGBM
