Artificial intelligence in biomedical imaging

We are pleased to present a new Special Issue on Artificial Intelligence in biomedical imaging. Artificial intelligence is increasingly used in various fields of life. One such area is medicine. Modern medical imaging provides an increasing number of features derived from different types of analysis,  including artificial intelligence. These features are most often used for a variety of analyses including fuzzy logic, evolutionary calculations, neural networks, or artificial life. Proper image processing, appropriate selection of features and artificial intelligence method can support medical diagnostics. This area has been in recent years the subject of many research papers and research grants. Consequently, this Special Issue is devoted to the subject of artificial intelligence, in its broadest sense, in biomedical engineering with particular emphasis on medical imaging. Therefore, I invite  authors who deal with new and modified machine learning methods, evolutionary calculations and their new applications in biomedical imaging. I hope that this Special Issue will be for readers a valuable supplement to the knowledge of new artificial intelligence methods and its applications in new areas of medical imaging.

This special issue is edited Dr Robert Koprowski.
