This paper aims to focus on the feature extraction, selection and database creation of brain images for image retrieval which will aid for computer assisted diagnosis. The impact of content-based access to medical images is frequently reported but existing systems are designed for only a particular context of diagnosis. But, our concept of image retrieval in medical applications aims at a general structure for semantic content analysis that is suitable for numerous applications in case-based reasoning. By using the features, the database created for comparison. The color histogram is used to measure the similarity between the stored database image and the query image. The image which is more similar to the query image is retrieved as the resultant image. If the query
