Medical imaging is a vital component of a large number of applications. MRI is the state-of the-art medical imaging technology, which allows cross sectional view of the body with unprecedented tissue contrast. The information that MRI provides has greatly increased knowledge of normal and diseased anatomy for medical research, and is a critical component in diagnosis and treatment planning. In this paper, we have planned to develop an approach to brain MRI image preprocessing for tumor detection. In preprocessing steps, we need to perform Skull Stripping & Image Enhancement. Skull Stripping is required to produce better results. Image Enhancement is for adjusting digital images for future analysis.
