Brain tumors are made up of abnormal brain cells. Brain cancer is classified into benign and malignant tumors. Most tumors are diagnosed using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The early detection of a brain tumor is crucial, since it is a fatal condition. This study, therefore, employs Inception V3, VGG-16, and ResNet50 models, which are deep learning and transfer learning models, respectively. In this study, data augmentation is proposed to minimize overfitting since limited MRI data were used in the project. The study will use hyper-parameter tuning in order to provide field workers with a more accurate model. Critically evaluated metrics such as accuracy, precision and recall are used.In this study, VGG16, InceptionV3 and ResNet50 gives accuracy of 75%,67% and 94%. With the ResNet50 giving better accuracy, it can efficetively detect brain tumor hence healthcare workers can provide better treatment.
