This paper presents a novel and unreported approach developed to filter T2-weighetd Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). The MRI data is fitted with a parametric bivariate cubic Lagrange polynomial, which is used as the model function to build the continuum into the discrete samples of the two-dimensional MRI images. On the basis of the aforementioned model function, the Classic-Curvature (CC) and the Signal Resilient to Interpolation (SRI) images are calculated and they are used as filter masks to convolve the two-dimensional MRI images of the pathological human brain. The pathologies are human brain tumors. The result of the convolution provides with filtered T2-weighted MRI images. It is found that filtering with the CC and the SRI provides with reliable and faithful reproduction of the human brain tumors. The validity of filtering the T2-weighted MRI for the quest of supplemental information about the tumors is also found positive.
