This paper focuses on the medical image processing which is considered nowadays a challenging field. It is an emerging domain which presents processing of Magnetic Resonance Images (MRI) as one of important part. This work proposes a fast and robust practical strategy to extract a brain tumour using patient's MRI scan images of the brain. For this purpose, some tools are used which include the basic concepts of image processing such as noise removal functions, segmentation and morphological operations. To detect and extract a tumour from MRI scan, a MATLAB software code is implemented.
