Abstract

Introduction: One of the leading causes of death among people is brain tumors. Accurate tumor classification leads to appropriate decision-making and providing the most efficient treatment to the patients. This study aims to optimize of the brain tumor MR images classification accuracy using the optimal threshold, PCA and training Adaptive Neuro Fuzzy Inference System (ANFIS) with different repetitions.
Materials and Methods: This procedure used in this study consists of five steps: (1) T1, T2 weighted images collection, (2) tumor separation with different threshold levels, (3) feature extraction, (4) presence and absence of feature reduction applying principal component analysis (PCA) and
(5) ANFIS classification with 0, 20, and 200 training repetitions.
 
Results: ANFIS accuracy was 40%, 80% and 97% for all features and 97%, 98.5% and 100% for the 6 selected features by PCA in 0, 20 and 200 training repetitions, respectively.
 
Conclusion: The findings of the present study showed that accuracy can be raised up to 100% by using an optimized threshold method, PCA and increasing training repetitions.
