Automated segmentation and classification of biomedical images act as a vital part of the diagnosis of brain tumors (BT). A primary tumor brain analysis suggests a quicker response from treatment that utilizes for improving patient survival rate. The location and classification of BTs from huge medicinal images database, obtained from routine medical tasks with manual processes are a higher cost together in effort and time. An automatic recognition, place, and classifier process was desired and useful. This study introduces an Automated Deep Residual U-Net Segmentation with Classification model (ADRU-SCM) for Brain Tumor Diagnosis. The presented ADRU-SCM model majorly focuses on the segmentation and classification of BT. To accomplish this, the presented ADRU-SCM model involves wiener filtering (WF) based preprocessing to eradicate the noise that exists in it. In addition, the ADRU-SCM model follows deep residual U-Net segmentation model to determine the affected brain regions. Moreover, VGG-19 model is exploited as a feature extractor. Finally, tunicate swarm optimization (TSO) with gated recurrent unit (GRU) model is applied as a classification model and the TSO algorithm effectually tunes the GRU hyperparameters. The performance validation of the ADRU-SCM model was tested utilizing FigShare dataset and the outcomes pointed out the better performance of the ADRU-SCM approach on recent approaches.
