Competitive/collaborative neural computing system for medical diagnosis in pancreatic cancer detection



Abstract: The use of computer technology to support medical decisions is now widespread and pervasive across a broad range of medical areas. Accordingly, computer-aided diagnosis has become an increasingly important area for intelligent computational systems. This paper describes a competitive/collaborative neural computing system designed to support the medical decision process using medical imaging databases. A concrete example concerning an application to support the differential diagnosis of chronic pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer is also provided.
