In recent years, improved deep learning techniques have been applied to biomedical image processing for the classification and segmentation of different tumors based on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and histopathological imaging (H&E) clinical information. Deep Convolutional Neural Networks (DCNNs) architectures include tens to hundreds of processing layers that can extract multiple levels of features in image-based data, which would be otherwise very difficult and time-consuming to be

This article summarizes the latest studies of deep learning techniques applied to three different kinds of brain cancer medical images (histology, magnetic resonance, and computed tomography) and highlights current challenges in the field for the broader applicability of DCNN in personalized brain cancer care by focusing on two main applications of DCNNs: classification and segmentation of brain cancer tumors images.
