Brain tumor is a formation of abnormal cells within the brain that can disrupt the function of the brain. In India, every year 40,000-50,000 persons are diagnosed with brain tumor. Traditionally, radiologist manually detect and calculate the size of the tumor from CT Scan images during regular screening. Out of which, approximately, 10% to 30% of tumors are missed by them. In this paper, a computer aided system for brain tumor detection and it's area calculation using K - means clustering algorithm has been proposed using an interface.
