In this paper, a novel approach to MRI Brain Image segmentation based on the Hybrid Parallel Ant Colony Optimization (HPACO) with Fuzzy C-Means (FCM) Algorithm have been used to find out the optimum label that minimizes the Maximizing a Posterior (MAP) estimate to segment the image. There are M colonies, M-1 colonies treated as slaves and one colony for master. Each colonies visit all the pixels with out revisit. Initially, initialize the pheromone value for all the colonies. Posterior energy values or fitness values are computed by Markov Random Field. If this value is less than global minimum, the local minimum is assigned to global minimum. The pheromone of the Ant that generates the global minimum is updated. At the final iteration global minimum returns the optimum threshold value for select the initial clustering the FCM implementation in the brain Magnetic Resonance Image (MRI) segmentation.
