Malignant Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) attacks blood and bone marrow. Leukemia mostly affects both youngsters and older people all over the world. It is critical to detect leukaemia slightly earlier to offer patients the best possible therapy, specifically in the case of youngsters. As a result, computational methods for medical image processing are in high demand and have been the focus of medical image processing research. The major goal of this study is to use image processing and artificial intelligence approaches to forecast ALL cells. Computer Aided Diagnosis (CAD) has quickly grown in popularity over the last few years. Early-stage leukemia detection that is swift, safe, and precise is critical for treating and preserving patients' lives. A residual Neural Network (RNN) can be identified as a variant of a neural network that is again modified as ResNet-50. The max-pooling and convolutional layers were utilized to extract the maximum features present in the source image. The completely linked layer differentiates between malignant and healthy cell images. ResNet50 was used to detect leukemic cells with 99.61% accuracy. The findings showed that the proposed model outperformed other famous algorithms in detecting healthy vs leukemia patients.
