Without a doubt, over the last few decades widely understood diagnostic imaging (MRI, CT, etc.) has played crucial role in preventing severe consequences or health-related complications to which many diseases can lead. In such cases precise early-stage diagnosis is of utmost importance and becomes the key to successful therapy and treatment of even potentially deadly diseases. Unfortunately, civilisation development or demographic trends result in increasing numbers of patients which could benefit from making the whole diagnostic process more effective and simply faster. However, processing the diagnostic data (e.g. MRI / CT scans) acquired from so many patients is often beyond human capability. In such situation employing AI / ML tools and methods as well as different kinds of expert systems seem the only reasonable solution of the problem. Solution which requires many challenges to be addressed ranging from proper features extraction and pattern recognition up to elaborating some problem-specific validation and verification methods. All papers addressing those challenges and topics and especially those combining various theoretical and practical approaches are invited for this special issue.
