About this book


The book covers recent developments in theory, methodologies and applications of fuzzy logic in medicine. A representative and diverse range of original and innovative topics are selected, giving an overall perspective of the current state and future trends in the field. Medical image processing, monitoring and control of anaesthesia, ECG and EEG signal processing are some of the application topics the book addresses. Emerging methodologies like fuzzy temporal representation of knowledge or rule acquisition extracted from medical data are also described. Undoubtedly those new frameworks will extend the use of fuzzy logic into different fields in medicine in the near future.
