In today's technology, computer assisted detection applications have managed to make great contributions to the field of medicine. Computer assisted detection systems aim to help radiologist about mass detection by using image processing systems. In this study, it's aimed to carry out mass detection process on the images of 3D brain MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging). The steps followed in this study are the stage of pre-processing the stage of segmentation, identification of the areas of interests and identification of tumor. As a result of processing's in the stages of preprocessing and segmentation, obtained areas of interests are labelled and attributes of these areas of interests are extracted during the stage of attributes extraction and in the last stage, the areas of interests are identified as whether they are mass or not according to these attributes. With this method applied on 845 number of magnetic resonance image sections belonging to 13 patients, it has been achieved classification success with 86.39%.
