Intelligent and Adaptive Systems in Medicine describes the application of adaptive and intelligent control, data mining, and intelligent systems in the diagnosis, planning, treatment, and follow-up of diseases such as cancer. The book comprises three parts, each devoted to a particular set of tools: intelligent and adaptive control in medicine; intelligent systems in medical imaging; and intelligent systems in data modeling for oncology. Among the tools are fuzzy logic, artificial neural networks, neuro-fuzzy modeling, data mining, adaptive and predictive control, systems and statistical modeling, and image processing. It is an excellent reference for postgraduates and professionals.
