Identification of presence of brain

tumors in MRI images using contrast

enhancement technique

MRI noninvasive medical imaging
Helps to visualize detailed internal structure
of the body
Tumor region is characterized by necrotic
region, active region, and edema
These regions are distinguished by contrast
and texture
Hence, contrast and texture can be made a
basis for tumor classification
