“the test of choice to evaluate for brain tumor is the mri with and without the contrast,” says neurosurgeon charles park, md, director of the minimally invasive brain and spine center at mercy medical center in baltimore. Brain tumors produce neurological deficits by destroying brain tissue, stealing nutrients from normal brain cells, or exerting pressure in the brain this can cause a gradual loss of movement or sensation in an arm or leg, unsteadiness, vision or hearing loss, or the gradual onset of speech difficulties. Whole-brain radiation is most often used to treat cancer that spreads to the brain from some other part of the body and forms multiple tumors in the brain a newer form of radiation therapy using proton beams is being studied for use in people with brain tumors.

Preprocessing, segmentation, feature extraction and detection of tumor from mri scanned brain images magnetic resonance imaging (mri) is a non-invasive imaging modalities which is best suited for the detection of brain tumor. Brain tumor at early stage is very difficult task for doctors to identify mri images are more prone to noise and other environmental interference. Diagnosing brain tumors diagnosing a brain tumor involves completion of a series of tests to evaluate the patient’s symptoms and neurological functions most brain tumors are not found until after symptoms appear.
