BACKGROUND Artificial neural networks are computer programs that can be used to discover complex relations within data sets. They permit the recognition of patterns in complex biological data sets that cannot be detected with conventional linear statistical analysis. One such complex problem is the prediction of outcome for individual patients treated for colorectal cancer. Predictions of outcome in such patients have traditionally been based on population statistics. However, these predictions… Expand
