Fuzzy and Neuro-Fuzzy Systems in Medicineprovides a thorough review of state-of-the-art techniques and practices, defines and explains relevant problems, as well as provides solutions to these problems. After an introduction, the book progresses from one topic to another - with a linear development from fundamentals to applications.

"This volume is a step toward increasing exchanges between fuzzy researchers and the biomedicine…The last chapter, split into two parts, provides a useful summary of hardware requirements for biomedical usage, including issues of reliability, cost, and biocompatibility…[Chapters 3 to 5] will be of interest to the biomedical engineer…or graduate students as a supplement to a text."
