Image processing plays an important role in medical diagnosis. In this paper, a brain tumor detection method based on cellular neural networks (CNNs) is proposed. Brain tumor is an abnormal growth of cells inside the skull. To examine the location of tumor in the brain, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is used. Radiologists will evaluate the grey scale MRI images. This procedure is really time and energy consuming. To overcome this problem, an automated detection method for brain tumor using CNN is developed. By using the template in the CNN simulator, output of the desired image can be performed. Therefore, many templates were combined in order to obtain an accurate result that will help radiologists detecting the tumor in brain images easily.
