Brain tumor is an abnormal growth of the cells in the brain. The location, shape and region of the tumor is very important for identifying the tumor. Even the doctors can identify these tasks with their knowledge, but, it is a time consuming process. In order to save the time of the doctors, there is a need for the automation of the Brain tumor segmentation. Here, we have made an attempt for developing the algorithm for Brain tumor segmentation. Illumination normalization is an important

In order to avoid the wrong prediction of the tumor location in brain images, which was caused due to illumination, there is a need to eliminate the illumination. So, here, illumination also considered, while detecting the tumor. We used the preprocessing techniques Local Binary Pattern and for segmentation used Morphological operations. The proposed algorithm is developed using MATLAB.
