In the field of stroke imaging, deep learning (DL) has enormous untapped potential. When clinically significant symptoms of a cerebral stroke are detected, it is crucial to make an urgent diagnosis using available imaging techniques such as computed tomography (CT) scans. The purpose of this work is to classify brain CT images as normal, surviving ischemia or cerebral hemorrhage based on the convolutional neural network (CNN) model. In this study, we propose a computer-aided diagnostic system (CAD) for categorizing cerebral strokes using computed tomography images. Horizontal flip data magnification techniques were used to obtain more accurate categorization. Image Data Generator to magnify the image in real time and apply any random transformations to each training image. An early stopping method to avoid overtraining. As a result, the proposed methods improved several estimation parameters such as accuracy and recall, compared to other machine learning methods. A python web application was created to demonstrate the results of CNN model classification using cloud development techniques. In our case, the model correctly identified the drawing class as normal with 79% accuracy. Based on the collected results, it was determined that the presented automated diagnostic system could be used to assist medical professionals in detecting and classifying brain strokes.
