INTRODUCTION: Pancreatic cancer is highly lethal as it grows, spreads rapidly and difficult to diagnose at its early stages. It can be identified through scan images. The tumorous images obtained from imaging techniques suffer from the drawback of cryptic data due to presence of unwanted noise and poor contrast. OBJECTIVE: To reduce the risk of pancreatic cancer, its detection and diagnosis at an early stage becomes crucial. METHODS: The proposed work encompasses the processing of CT scans of

RESULTS: The simulation results are highly encouraging as evident from the far improved visibility of resultant images with Particle Swarm Optimization. CONCLUSION: The output image with PSO shows the quality enhanced CT images which helps in accurate detection and diagnosis of the pancreatic tumor at an early stage providing an aid in medical imaging.
