In this study, segmentation of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) lesions from synthetic brain MRI images was aimed by using fuzzy clustering algorithms. The performances of fuzzy c-means algorithm and type-2 fuzzy c-means algorithm were compared. After several experiments it was shown that, the type-2 fuzzy c-means algorithm performed better than the standard fuzzy c-means algorithm.
