In the world, in the past recent five years, breast cancer is diagnosed about 7.8 million women’s and making it the most widespread cancer, and it is the second major reason for women’s death. So, early prevention and diagnosis systems of breast cancer could be more helpful and significant. Neural networks can extract multiple features automatically and perform predictions on breast cancer. There is a need for several labeled images to train neural networks which is a nonconventional method for some types of data images such as breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) images. So, there is only one significant solution for this query is to apply fine-tuning in the neural network. In this paper, we proposed a fine-tuning model using AlexNet in the neural network to extract features from breast cancer images for training purposes. So, in the proposed model, we updated the first and last three layers of AlexNet to detect the normal and abnormal regions of breast cancer. The proposed model is more efficient and significant because, during the training and testing process, the proposed model achieves higher accuracy 98.44% and 98.1% of training and testing, respectively. So, this study shows that the use of fine-tuning in the neural network can detect breast cancer using MRI images and train a neural network classifier by feature extraction using the proposed model is faster and more efficient.
