<jats:p>Image enhancement is one of the most critical subjects in computer vision and image processing fields. It can be considered as means to enrich the perception of images for human viewers. All kinds of images typically suffer from different problems such as weak contrast and noise. The primary purpose of image enhancement is to change an image's visual appearance. Many algorithms have recently been proposed for enhancing medical images. Image enhancement is still deemed a challenging task. In this paper, the fuzzy c-means clustering (FCM) technique is utilized to enhance the medical images. The method of enhancement consists of two stages. The proposed algorithm conducts a cluster test on the image pixels. It then increases the difference of gray level between the diverse objects to accomplish the enhancement purpose of the medical images. The experimental results have been tested using various images. The algorithm enhanced the small target of the image to a reasonable limit and revealed favorable performance. The results of image enhancement techniques were evaluated by using terms of different criteria such as peak signal to noise ratio (PSNR), mean square error (MSE) and average information contents (AIC), showing promising performance.</jats:p>
