The identification of brain infarct in computed tomography (CT) images is difficult due the nature appearance of the infarct tissues similar to the normal tissues in the brain CT images. In this paper, a histogram-based colorization method is presented in order to enhance the visualization and interpretation of brain CT images. The presented is aimed to improve the diagnosis of brain CT images, in terms of shortening the duration and minimizing the human error. The presented approach performs contrast stretching on the brain CT images and applies colorization to the contrast-stretched images based on standard parameters which is set from the observation of the histogram of the images.
