Original Abstract

Currently, the increasing number of reported cancer cases has become a serious indicator of persisting low curability rates characterizing certain prominent diseases. An early tumor diagnosis constitutes a vital prerequisite for any potentially successful therapy; in this context, the present paper discusses the improvement of accuracy in the overall diagnostics related to brain tumors. The proposed measures include, for example, maximizing the use of image modifications and decreasing the radiation doses received by a patient’s body. The wider project is centered on the diagnostics of pathological tissues in the brain; it describes and compares the classification and identification of particular brain tumors. For the given purpose, images were acquired via magnetic resonance tomography.
