Authors(3) :-Kshipra Singh, Prof. Umesh Kumar Lilhore, Prof. Nitin Agrawal

Image mining is a vital technique which is used to mine knowledge straightforwardly from the image. Image processing and segmentation are the primary phases in image mining. Image mining is simply an expansion of data mining in the field of image processing. Image mining handles with the hidden knowledge extraction, image data association and additional patterns which are not clearly accumulated in the images. Image processing and Image segmentation methods are widely used to separate objects from the background, and thus it has proved to be a powerful tool in biomedical imaging. In the field of medical science, MRI images are widely used in brain tumor detection, breast cancer detection. Brain tumor detection and its evaluation are tough duties in scientific images processing due to the fact brain images and its shape is complex that may be analyzed handiest with the aid of professional radiologists. MRI has ended up a particularly beneficial scientific diagnostic device for prognosis of the brain and other scientific images. This paper presents a comparative study and analysis of various brain tumour detection methods for MRI images by using image processing.
