The design, implementation, and preliminary testing of a computer system for automatic multispectral magnetic resonance imaging analysis is presented. The modular structure of the system permits easy comparison between various classification algorithms. The classification accuracy of traditional statistical pattern-recognition algorithms is compared to the results that can be obtained with neural networks of different topologies. Quantitative (confusion matrices) as well as visual (segmented images) results of a study performed on sets of normal and pathological images are presented. Images segmented with a neural network classifier (NNC) appear less noisy than images segmented with a maximum likelihood classifier (MLC), and it has been observed that the NNC is less sensitive to the selection of the training sets than the MLC
