In this paper we present a study to automatically iterate through a database containing hundreds of MRI image slices and classify them as containing a tumor or as healthy. Performing this classification manually is prone to error, costly, time consuming, irreproducible and non-scalable. Our technique uses the midsagittal axis to determine whether an asymmetry is present amongst the two hemispheres. This is done using a deformation process followed by a novel morphological erosion operation to conclude the presence of a tumor. Our dataset contains simulated T1-weighted axial slices derived from 3D volumes. These volumes were obtained from BrainWeb and augmented...
