Summary note:
"Focusing on a growing area of medical technology, Intelligent and Adaptive Systems in Medicine clearly and concisely explains a range of adaptive and intelligent systems, highlighting their benefits and limitations with realistic medical examples." "Bridging the gap between theory and practice, this volume describes the application of adaptive and intelligent control as well as intelligent systems in the diagnosis, planning, treatment, and follow up of diseases such as cancer. Each chapter presents a family of an intelligent and adaptive system, explains the techniques and algorithms behind these systems, and explores how to solve medical and biomedical problems using intelligent and adaptive systems. The book focuses on the methods of fuzzy logic, artificial neural networks, neuro-fuzzy modeling, adaptive and predictive control, systems and statistical modeling, and image processing."--BOOK JACKET.
Notes:
"The idea for this book stemmed from the multidisciplinary meeting on "intellligent systems in medical diagnostics and therapy," which was held at Coventry University, United Kingdom, in October 2002"--P. xi.
