Abstract -
Segmentation of brain tumor is a very important and crucial step in the initial detection of tumor in the Medical Image Analysis. Though various methods are present for brain tumor segmentation, but detection of tumor still is a challenging task since for researchers as tumor possesses complex characteristics in appearance and boundaries. Brain tumor segmentation must be done with precision in the clinical practices. The objective of this review paper is to presents a comprehensive overview for MRI brain tumor segmentation methods. In this paper, various segmentation techniques have been discussed. Comparative analysis among these various segmentation conventions has been discussed in brief.
