Clinical Applications of Artificial Neural Networks
Richard Dybowski, Vanya Gant
Cambridge University Press, 2001 - Mathematics - 368 pages
Artificial neural networks provides a powerful tool to help doctors analyze, model, and make sense of complex clinical data across a broad range of medical applications. Their potential in clinical medicine is reflected in the diversity of topics covered in this cutting-edge volume. In addition to looking at new and forthcoming applications the book looks forward to exciting future prospects on the horizon. The volume also examines ethical and legal concerns about the use of "black-box" systems as decision aids in medicine. This eclectic collection of chapters provides an exciting overview of current and future prospects for harnessing the power of artificial neural networks in the investigation and treatment of disease.
