Biomedical research in last decade or so has seen the development of highly accurate algorithms focused on the detection and classification of the brain tumor into malignant or benign. As a result of these advancements a new research direction has emerged which focuses on categorizing the brain tumors based on their types, such as Glioma, Metastases, and Meningioma etc. In this paper, we present a novel application of normalized cross-correlation in polynomial domain technique (predominately used in image registration) to classify Magnetic Resonance Image (MRI) of a brain into one of eight (8) different categories with high accuracy. The MRI scan is transformed into polynomial domain by first calculating its central moments and then fitting them to a 2nd order polynomial space. Experimental results show that the proposed approach provides very accurate and stable classification in real time.
