Brain Tumor Classification Using Deep Learning Technique – A Comparison between Cropped, Uncropped, and Segmented Lesion Images with Different Sizes

01/23/2020 ∙ by Ali Mohammad Alqudah, et al. ∙ 15

Deep Learning is the newest and the current trend of the machine learning field that paid a lot of the researchers' attention in the recent few years. As a proven powerful machine learning tool, deep learning was widely used in several applications for solving various complex problems that require extremely high accuracy and sensitivity, particularly in the medical field. In general, brain tumor is one of the most common and aggressive malignant tumor diseases which is leading to a very short expected life if it is diagnosed at higher grade. Based on that, brain tumor grading is a very critical step after detecting the tumor in order to achieve an effective treating plan. In this paper, we used Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) which is one of the most widely used deep learning architectures for classifying a dataset of 3064 T1 weighted contrast-enhanced brain MR images for grading (classifying) the brain tumors into three classes (Glioma, Meningioma, and Pituitary Tumor). The proposed CNN classifier is a powerful tool and its overall performance with accuracy of 98.93 results for the uncropped lesions are 99 the results for segmented lesion images are 97.62 sensitivity.
