AbstractAim:To develop an automatic magnetic resonance (MR) brain classification that can assist physicians to make a diagnosis and reduce wrong decisions.Method:This article investigated the binary particle swarm optimization (BPSO) approach and proposed its three new variants: BPSO with mutation and time-varying acceleration coefficients (BPSO-MT), BPSO with mutation (BPSO-M), and BPSO with time-varying acceleration coefficients (BPSO-T). We first extracted wavelet entropy (WE) features from both approximation and detail sub-bands of eight-level decomposition. Afterwards, we used the proposed BPSO-M, BPSO-T, and BPSO-MT to select features. Finally, the selected features were fed into a probabilistic neural network (PNN).Results:The proposed BPSO-MT performed better than BPSO-T and BPSO-M. It finally selected two features of entropies of the following two sub-bands (V1, D1). The proposed system “WE + BPSO-MT + PNN” yielded perfect classification on Data160 and Data66. In addition, it yielded 99.53% average accuracy for the Data255, over 10 repetitions of k-fold stratified cross validation (SCV), higher than state-of-the-art approaches.Conclusions:The proposed method is effective for MR brain classification.
