The spatial and temporal resolution is dramatically increased due to the quick development of medical imaging technology, which in turn increases the size of clinical imaging data. Typically, it is very challenging to do small blob segmentation as of Medical Images (MI) but it encompasses so many vital applications. Some examples are labelling cell, lesion, along with glomeruli aimed at disease diagnosis. Though various detectors were suggested by the prevailing method for this type of issue, they mostly used 2D detectors, which may render less detection accuracy. To trounce this, the system has developed an efficient small Blob Detection (BD)as well as classification in 3D Magnetics Resonance Imaging (MRI) human kidney images utilizingImproved Mini Batch K-Means (IMBKM)and Enhanced Deep Convolutionals Neural Network (EDCNN) classifier. To segment the blob portions,the image is first ameliorated via Enhanced Contrast Limited Adaptive Histogram Equalization (ECLAHE) followed by the IMBKM algorithm. After that, to determine the segmentation performance, the pixels’ percentage in the detected blob portion is gauged. In addition, statistical, GLCM, together with shape features are extracted as of the segmented blob potions. Lastly, the EDCNN takes care of the classification, which classifies '4' classes, say, Normal, Glomerulonephritis, Stone, and Pyelonephritis. The experimental outcomes exhibit that IMBKM and EDCNN have the potential to automatically detect blobs and classify the blobs efficiently than the top-notch methods.
