Abstract: This paper presents the artificial neural network approach namely Back propagation network (BPNs) and probabilistic neural network (PNN). It is used to classify the type of tumor in MRI images of different patients with Astrocytoma type of brain tumor. The image processing techniques have been developed for detection of the tumor in the MRI images. Gray Level Co-occurrence Matrix (GLCM) is used to achieve the feature extraction. The whole system worked in two modes firstly Training/Learning mode and secondly Testing/Recognition mode.
Keywords: Brain Cancer, MRI, Gray Level Co-occurrence Matrix, Texture Features, Back Propagation Network and Probabilistic Neural Network.

Scope of the Article: Network Security Trust, & Privacy
