For Tracking interfaces and shapes which depends on the regions of pixel intensity is a challenging task in image segmentation. Many level set methods have been formulated for region based and edge based models in computer aided diagnosis systems. In order to provide accurate modeling involving numerical computations, contours, lesions and bias variance which often rely on pixel intensity variations for the region of Interest. The proposed method involves the formulation by deriving a global criterion function in terms of neighborhood pixels to represent domain field and bias variance characteristics. Gaussian impulse is used for smoothening sharp edges. Computational neural networks provide the integral part of most learning algorithms as images consists of redundant attributes of data which have redundant network connections with different input patterns of small weights form a network training process for minimizing the energy and to estimate the bias field correction for various imaging modalities. The PET and CT images are used as inputs which are affected with cancer; in order to extract the features, proposed method is used for easy diagnosis. The result shows the improved performance with Neural Networks and provides valuable diagnostic information.
