Special Issue "eHealth and Artificial Intelligence"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 January 2019)
Artificial Intelligence is changing the healthcare industry from many perspectives: Diagnosis, treatment and follow up. A major topic of AI in medicine is the that related to Clinical Decision Support (CDS) to assist clinicians at point of care.
CDS can be knowledge-based, where the AI areas involved are inference and logics and non-knowledge-based, where machine learning is used. CDS can support all aspects of clinical tasks, but, to be effective, it must be properly integrated within the clinical workflow, as well as with health records. A typical application is a Computer Aided Diagnosis (CAD) to assist doctors in the interpretation of medical images. CAD involves, not only AI, but also Computer Vision, Signal Processing and specific medical aspects. CADs find application in breast cancer, lung cancer, colon cancer, coronary artery disease, Alzheimer’s disease and many others.
Given the above, proposer of this Special Issue strongly believe the topic of eHealth is relevant to the AI community; in fact, many open research aspects are still open in the field from an AI perspective.
