Brain tumor is an uncontrolled growth of abnormal cell in the brain. Early diagnosis of brain tumor has a crucial step in this type of cancer, which is fatal. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is one of the examination tools to examine brain anatomy in clinical practice. The high resolution and clear separation of the tissue enable medical experts to identify brain tumor. The earlier of brain tumor is detected, the wider of treatment options. However, manually analysed of brain anatomy on MRI images are time-consuming. Computer-aided diagnosis with automated way is helpful solution to help management with unreliable degrees of automation to trace various tissue boundaries. This study proposes convolutional neural network (CNN) with its excellences to automated features extraction in convolution layer. The popular architectures of CNN, i.e., visual geometry group16 (VGG16), residual network-50 (resNet-50), inceptionV3, mobileNet, and efficientNetB7 in medical image processing are compared to brain tumor classification task. As the results, VGG16 outperformed other architectures of CNN in this study. VGG16 yields 100% accuracy, precision, sensitivity, specificity, and F1-score for testing set data. The results show the excellent performance in classifying brain tumor and no tumor from MRI images that demonstrate the efficiency of system suggested.
