An algorithmic detection of brain tumour usingc image filtering and segmentation of various radiographs
Cancer as a disease has taken the form of an epidemic for human beings. This work processes radiograph CT and MRI images to perform detection of brain tumour using a hybrid algorithm based on image processing and segmentation. The database taken is from Google open source brain scans and the system has been developed on MATLAB v2019 for Windows. Section I reviews image processing for medical imaging and Section II reviews associated state-of-art literature. Section III details the proposed system. An engineering analysis is detailed in Section IV; a sensitivity of 100%, similarity of 89.66% and accuracy of 87.50% is achieved for the algorithm. This work proposes to develop a cost-effective system accessible to medical practitioners on everyday computers.
