Abstract: Aim: This study aims at developing an automatic medical image analysis and detection for

accurate classification of brain tumors from MRI dataset. The study implemented our novel MIDNet18

CNN architecture in comparison with the VGG16 CNN architecture for classifying normal brain images

from the brain tumor images. Materials and methods: The novel MIDNet-18 CNN architecture

comprises 14 convolutional layers, 7 pooling layers, 4 dense layers and 1 classification layer. The dataset

used for this study has two classes: Normal Brain MR Images and Brain Tumor MR Images. This binary

MRI brain dataset consists of 2918 images as training set, 1458 images as validation set and 212 images as

test set. Independent sample size calculated was 7 for each group, keeping GPower at 80%. Result: From

the experimental results, it could be inferred that our novel MIDNet18 was 98% better than VGG16,

which was statistically significant with p value <0.001(Independent sample t-test).
