Image Processing with the Specific Focus on Early Tumor Detection

Mashal Tariq, Attaullah Khawajah, and Munawer Hussain

Abstract—The primary purpose of this paper is to elaborate upon and to take a step ahead on the research done in the field of Image Processing with a focus on Early Tumor Detection through the use of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Image Processing Tool Box of MATLAB. The technique which the author proposed is Morphological Reconstruction Based Segmentation, used to segment the solid cum cystic tumor of brain and is suggested after testing and observing various available methods and algorithms. The proposed method shows more precision amongst others and the processing time is also fast.

Index Terms—Image processin, medical diagnosis, object detection, tumors.
