In this research paper, finding tumor area of human brain in CT scan brain images are accessible based on computerized method. Initially the classification is done by either brain consuming a tumor or healthy brain and then the classification is further divided into either benign type of tumor or malignant type of tumor. This proposed method involves the following steps namely image pre-processing, segmentation of an image, edge detection of an image, feature extraction of an image and clustering of an image using a novel algorithm,A MATLAB software is used for test the proposed novel algorithm in a user friendly manner. Finally the region of interest of brain tumor area is done by the validation phase.
