Diagnosis is the first step before giving a medicine to the patient. In the recent past such diagnosis is performed using medical images where segmentation is the prime part in the medical image retrieval which improves the feature set that is collected from the segmented image. In this paper, it is proposed to segment the medical image a semi decision algorithm that can segment only the tumor part from the CT image. Further texture based techniques are used to extract the feature vector from
