Digital Image Processing (DIP) is a well-developed field in the biological sciences which involves classification and detection of tumour. In medical science, automatic brain tumor diagnosis is an important phase. Brain tumor detection is performed by Computer-Aided Diagnosis (CAD) systems. The human image creation is greatly achieved by an approach namely medical imaging which is exploited for medical and research purposes. Recently Automatic brain tumor detection from MRI images has become the emerging research area of medical research. Brain tumor diagnosis mainly performed for obtaining exact location, orientation and area of abnormal tissues. Cancer and edema regions inference from brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) information is considered to be great challenge due to brain tumors complex structure, blurred borders, besides exterior features like noise. The noise compassion is mainly reduced along with segmentation stability by suggesting efficient hybrid clustering method merged with morphological process for brain cancer segmentation. Combined form of Median Modified Wiener filter (CMMWF) is chiefly deployed for denoising, and morphological operations which in turn eliminate nonbrain tissue, efficiently dropping technique’s sensitivity to noise. The proposed system contains the main phases such as preprocessing, brain tumor extraction and post processing. Image segmentation is greatly achieved by presenting Intuitionist Possibilistic Fuzzy Clustering (IPFC) algorithm. The algorithm’s stability is greatly enhanced by this clustering along with clustering parameters sensitivity reduction. Then, the post processing of images are done through morphological operations along with Hybrid Median filtering (HMF) for attaining exact tumors representations. Additionally, suggested algorithm is substantiated by comparing with other existing segmentation algorithms. The outcomes reveal that suggested algorithm achieves improved outcomes pertaining to accuracy, sensitivity, specificity, and recall.
