During the impact of accident, traumatic brain injury (TBI) is sudden damage to the brain caused by a blow or jolt to the head. Injuries can range from mild concussions to severe permanent brain damage. This brain injury leads to blood clot in brain and it’s medically detected by using MRI scan. In this paper segmentation of MRI Brain Blood clot is done and watershed segmentation is used to extract the blood clot features from MRI Brain image. Morphological operators are applied to separate the blood clot areas from the segmented image.
