Detection and Classification of Brain Tumor using Radial Basis Function


Aim: This paper proposes the automatic support system for detecting the tumor cells by analyzing the scalp EEG by means of RBF technique. Objectives: To acquire the EEG signal from the various electrodes. The artificial neural network will be focused to split up the EEG signal whether cyst i.e. tumor or regular. Methods: The EEG signal is been acquired from the subject using EEG scalp electrodes. The various features such as mean, variance, co-variance, Eigen values and Eigen vectors are extracted from those signals using the Principal Component Analysis. Radial Basis Function (RBF) networks are feed-forward networks which uses a supervised training algorithm are used for function approximation, time series prediction and system control. The RBF is used to train and classify the signal whether the subject is normal or suffering from abnormalities. Results: The features are been extracted using the Principal Component Analysis and the features are skilled. Thus the acquired signals are been classified as cyst or normal. Conclusion: Thus in this paper an automatic system is been developed for diagnosing the tumor cells by means of analyzing EEG signal which is non-invasive method. It can also extend for analyzing other diseases seizures of epilepsy, Alzheimer’s disease.
