Brain tumor is one of the major causes of death among people. It is evident that the chances of survival can be increased if the tumor is detected and classified correctly at its early stage. Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging is currently an indispensable diagnostic imaging technique in the study of the human brain. Computer aided diagnosis systems for detecting Brain tumor for medical purpose have been investigated using several techniques. In this Review paper, it is intended to summarize and

Various segmentation approaches are reviewed with an emphasis placed on revealing the advantages and disadvantages of these methods for medical imaging applications. The use of image segmentation in different imaging modalities is also described along with the difficulties encountered in each modality.
