This paper introduces a new formula for the objective function of the famous fuzzy C-means algorithm. Two weighted terms are added to the objective function to reflect any available information about the class center and class pixels distribution throughout the datasets. The algorithm is evaluated for the task of the segmentation of medical MRI brain volume. The results show that the algorithm has a considerable robustness against noise and partial volume effects, and it needs a smaller number of iterations to reach convergence compared with other similar algorithms.
