The main objective of our task is to recognize a tumour and its quantifications from a particular MRI scan of a brain image using digital image processing techniques. The motivation of our work is to provide an efficient algorithm for detecting the brain tumour and calculating its growth. This research describes the proposed strategy to detect & extraction of brain tumour from patient’s MRI scan images of the brain. This method incorporates with some noise removal functions, segmentation and morphological operations which are the basic concepts of image processing. Detection and extraction of tumour from MRI scan images of the brain is done by using MATLAB software.
