Brain tumor, MRI images, Segmenting, Detection accuracy


A brain tumor is one of the main causes of increased mortality among children and adults. The tumor is a major problem that is out of control over the normal force that regulates growth. There are several techniques for segmenting and detecting a brain tumor area on MRI images. In this paper, we provide background reviews of several proposed techniques for the recognition of brain tumors. There is a lot of literature on detecting this type of brain tumor and improving detection accuracy.
