Brain Cancer Detection Using MRI Scans
More InformationShow full item record
An estimate of about 700,000 Americans today live with a brain tumor. Of these, 70% are benign and 30% are malicious. The average survival rate of all the malicious brain tumor patients is 35%. Diagnosing these tumors early on gives the best chance for survival. The Doctors use MRI scans to identify the presence of a tumor and it’s characteristics like the type and size. In this paper, I implemented a Deep learning convolutional neural network model that classifies the brain tumors using MRI scans. We shall use VGG-16 deep-learning approach to implement the machine learning algorithm. The proposed system can be divided into 3 parts: data input and preprocessing, building the VGG-16 model, image classification using the built model. Using this approach, I have achieved 80% accuracy. The accuracy of the model developed will depend on how correctly the affected brain tumor images can be classified from the unaffected.
