Aim and Scope
With the ever-growing demands on the healthcare system on a global scale, deep learning has become increasingly prevalent and seen as a crucial tool for not only improving the quality of care (increasing clinical decision and treatment accuracy and consistency) but also greatly improve the efficiency of care, allowing more patients to be assessed and treated.This session aims to present recent advances in medical image processing using deep learning (e.g., convolutional neural networks, auto encoders, generative adversarial networks, capsule networks, deep belief networks) and computational intelligence (e.g., multilayer perceptron, neuro-fuzzy, genetic algorithms). The objective of this special session is to advance scientific research of computational intelligence in medical image analysis. The session is going to foster the debate within the clinical domain of the most important breakthroughs in artificial intelligence techniques applied to medical imaging, boosting emerging trans-disciplinary fields such as computational radiology and computational pathology.
