The first book, “Intelligent Diagnosis of Lung Cancer and Respiratory Diseases“, is dedicated to the diagnosis of diseases of the respiratory tract or those that seriously affect the respiratory system. The physiological foundations of the respiratory system and the formation of radiographic images and x-ray computed tomography are presented. Principles of respiratory diseases are also presented, including lung cancer, viral and bacterial pneumonia, tuberculosis, and Covid-19. In addition, the principles of pattern recognition and machine learning and the main theoretical and practical tools are also briefly presented. Software libraries are also commented. Additionally, this book presents innovative works and systematic reviews of intelligent applications in the diagnosis of lung cancer, tuberculosis, viral and bacterial pneumonias, and Covid-19.
This book is intended for academics, graduate and postgraduate students in Medicine, Biomedicine, Biomedical Engineering, Computer Science, and whom are interested in Biomedical Computing and breast cancer diagnosis applications.
