Development of Automated Brain Tumor Identification Using MRI Images


A tumor cell is a form of cell that develops out of control of the ordinary forces and standardizes growth. Brain tumor is one of the major reasons for human death every year. Around 50% of brain tumor diagnosed patient die with primary brain tumors each year in the United States. Electronic modalities are used to diagnose brain tumors. Among all electronic modalities, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is one of the most used and popular for brain tumor diagnosis. In this research study, an automated approach has been proposed where MRI gray-scale images were incorporated for brain tumor detection. This study proposed an automated approach that includes enhancement at the initial stage to minimize gray-scale color variations. Filter operation was used to remove unwanted noises as much as possible to assist better segmentation. As this study test grayscale images therefore; threshold based OTSU segmentation was used instead of color segmentation. Finally, pathology experts provided feature information was used to identify the region of interests (brain tumor region). The experimental results showed that the proposed approach was able to perform better results compared to existing available approaches in terms of accuracy while maintaining the pathology experts\' acceptable accuracy rate.
