Abstract

The most challenging and emerging field now days is the Medical Image Processing. For safe and appropriate treatment of the tumor, proper diagnosing of the brain tumor is very important. The growth of tumor interrupts the normal brain activity and takes up a significant amount of space within the skull. So detecting the tumor at an early stage is essential. This paper reviews an automated way to detect the brain tumor. Firstly, image preprocessing is done to remove any noise and sharpen the image. Then the bounding box method is used for detecting the tumor. In the end, thresholding is done to segment the tumor portion from the brain image.
