Artificial neural networks provide a powerful tool to help doctors analyse, 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 volume.Table of Contents List of contributors1. Introduction Richard Dybowski and Vanya GantPart I.
