Various subjects that are paired usually are not identically the same, asymmetry is perfectly normal but sometimes asymmetry can be noticeable too much. Structural and functional asymmetry in the human brain and nervous system is reviewed in a historical perspective. Brain asymmetry is one of such examples, which is a difference in size or shape, or both. Asymmetry analysis of brain has great importance because it is not only indicator for brain cancer but also predict future potential risk for the same. In our work, we have concentrated to segment the anatomical regions of brain, isolate the two halves of brain and to investigate each half for the presence of asymmetry of anatomical regions in MRI.
