Brain Tumor Detection Software Using MRI Image
Mrs. Nitha T M,  Jijith M P
Brain is the first and the foremost controller of the human system. Excess cells growing in an uncontrolled manner in brain is called as brain tumor. In this paper the tumor part is identified by various levels starting from image acquisition, pre-processing, edge detection, modified histogram clustering and morphological operations. First the input taken is tumor affected MRI image. These MRI images obtained are stored in the database in JPEG format. Pre-processing generally means removing noise for improving image quality. Edge detection is used to determine the boundaries of the object. Modified histogram clustering technique is used to identify the position of the tumor. After morphological operations, tumors appear as pure white color on pure black back grounds. For segmentation and all the above said process is done with the help of software tool MATLAB
