About this book


This book is a continuation of the volumes providing various per-spectives on computational intelligence in healthcare [1-3]. This book is aimed to provide a sample of the state of art in the prac-tical applications of computational intelligence paradigms in health-care. It includes nineteen chapters on using various computational intelligent paradigms in healthcare such as intelligent agents and case-based reasoning. A number of applications and case studies are presented. This book is targeted towards scientists, application engineers, pro-fessors, health professionals, professors and students.
