An automated computerised tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) brain images are used to perform an efficient classification. The proposed technique consists of three stages, namely, pre-processing, feature extraction and classification. Initially, pre-processing is performed to remove the noise from the medical MRI images. Then, in the feature extraction stage, the features that ... [Show full abstract] are related with MRI and CT images are extracted and these extracted features which are given to the Feed Forward Back-propagation Neural Network (FFBNN) is exploited in order to classify the brain MRI and CT images into two types: normal and abnormal. The FFBNN is well trained by the extracted features and uses the unknown medical brain MRI images for classification in order to achieve better classification performance. The proposed method is validated by various MRI and CT scan images. A classification with an accomplishment of 96% and 70% has been obtained by the proposed FFBNN classifier. This achievement shows the effectiveness of the proposed brain image classification technique when compared with other recent research works.
