Multiple sclerosis arises with conformational change in myelin sheath. Magnetic resonance imaging is frequently used in detection of MS. In this study, to figure out MS lesion, machine learning techniques, namely k means and support vector machine are used. K means is an unsupervised technique used to cluster data into k groups. Support vector machine is a supervised machine learning technique used as classifier. Since dataset does not contain label of images, labels are generated by pixel values adopted from original MR image. Classification results were achieved as 70.24% and 91.04% for k means and SVM respectively. According to the promising results, future research will focus on the automatization of this segmentation process via deep learning leading to medical decision support system.
