The development of extra axial brain tumor detection prototype using back propagation based neural network / Suriyanti Panagen

Panagen, Suriyanti (2006) The development of extra axial brain tumor detection prototype using back propagation based neural network / Suriyanti Panagen. Degree thesis, Universiti Teknologi MARA.


This project is about detecting which type of extra axial brain tumor suffered by patient
using the artificial intelligence approach. Artificial intelligence method that used in this
system is artificial neural network. The neural network approach takes the concept of
human brain. Knowledge appearance is compulsory for neural network in which it
comes under the training phase before it recognize or detecting any pattern.A study
about the artificial neural network has been done and back propagation training
algorithm is suitable for this system development. A research about brain tumor also has.
been done and all data needed for this system was collected from Hospital Universiti
Sains Malaysia (HUSM) Kubang Kerian, Kelantan. About 46 patients' data was
collected from the Radiographic Department in that Hospital. All 46 patients' data in the
form of Magnetic Resonance Image (MRI) analysis report are suspected suffering brain
tumor. This system developed in order to assist the diagnosing process done by doctor
when they referring the Magnetic Resonance Image (MRI) image of the patient and they
try to make their impressions about the MRI features of each patient. With the help of
this system, doctor can ease their diagnosing task by running this program and do some
data training and then testing the data to get the better result. To ensure the performance
of the system, some experiments are done by adjusting the network parameters of the
back propagation training algorithm. So, neural network are able to capture the good and
better result or detection even there are the presence of noise that other method normally
fail and neural network becomes more popular as a technique to perform disease
detection in medical diagnosing.
