Healthcare costs around the globe are on the rise, creating a strong need for new ways of assisting the requirements of the healthcare system. Besides applications in other areas, neural networks have naturally found many promising applications in the health and medicine areas. Neural Networks in Healthcare: Potential and Challenges presents interesting and innovative developments from leading experts and scientists working in health, biomedicine, biomedical engineering, and computing areas. This book covers many important and state-of-the-art applications in the areas of medicine and healthcare, including: cardiology, electromyography, electroencephalography, gait and human movement, therapeutic drug monitoring for patient care, sleep apnea, and computational fluid dynamics areas.
Neural Networks in Healthcare: Potential and Challenges is a useful source of information for researchers, professionals, lecturers, and students from a wide range of disciplines. Readers of this book will be able to use the ideas for further research efforts in this very important and highly multidisciplinary area.
