    This book takes an interdisciplinary approach by covering topics on health care and artificial intelligence. Data sets related to biomedical signals (ECG, EEG, EMG) and images (X-rays, MRI, CT) are explored, analyzed, and processed through different computation intelligence methods. Applications of computational intelligence techniques like artificial and deep neural networks, swarm optimization, expert systems, decision support systems, clustering, and classification techniques on medial datasets are explained. Survey of medical signals, medial images, and computation intelligence methods are also provided in this book.
