Brain tumor, Image acquisition, Deep learning algorithm, MRI Imaging


In medical imaging, automated flaw detection has grown in importance. The ability to forecast tumor (brain) detection on one's own during an MRI scan is essential for preparing patients. Conventional methods of calculating z are developed to facilitate the work of radiologists. The size and variety of molecular structures in brain tumours presents a challenge for MRI diagnosis. This research uses deep learning (DL) techniques including support vector machines (SVM), artificial neural networks (ANN), and convolutional ANN to detect tumours in MRI scans (CNN). Segmentation scanning, feature extraction, and brain tumor classification are steps in the recommended technique. The second step consists of dataset preparation and input picture scanning. The third step involves figuring out how to extract features from a scanned picture. A number of machine learning methods are then utilized to classify the data according on these criteria. One of the most well-known neural networks (CNN) is employed in this article to differentiate between different kinds of MRI tumors.
