Quantum algorithm for quicker clinical prognostic analysis: an application and experimental study using CT scan images of COVID-19 patients
TLDR
A new image classification and segmentation method through simulation techniques, conducted over images of COVID-19 patients in India, introducing the use of Quantum Machine Learning (QML) in medical practice.
Deep Convolutional Neural Networks for Automated Diagnosis of Disc Herniation on Axial MRI
TLDR
Experimental results prove that this deep CNN results enjoy an improvement compared to former proposed methods; the accuracy, sensitivity and specificity for random sub sampling method are 87.75, 86.5, and 94.75%, respectively, achieved by AlexNet architecture of CNN.
Computer vision based working environment monitoring to analyze Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD)
TLDR
A novel computer vision assisted deep learning based posture monitoring system is proposed to predict Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) oriented physical abnormalities of an individual from their working environment and the calculated outcomes show that the proposed methodology performs better contrasted with other contemporary studies for activity prediction, data processing cost, error rate, and time complexity.

Investigations of the Influences of a CNN's Receptive Field on Segmentation of Subnuclei of Bilateral Amygdalae
TLDR
This study employed "AmygNet", a dual-branch fully convolutional neural network (FCNN) with two different sizes of receptive fields, to investigate the effects of receptive field on segmenting four major subnuclei of bilateral amygdalae.
Brain Tumors Presumed Malignant without Biopsy-Evaluation and Treatment Problems
TLDR
A separate diagnostic and treatment protocol is proposed for this group of patients, based on laboratory (ctDNA) and imagistic criteria, that cannot receive oncological treatment or radiotherapy because of the restrictive indications of the insurers (health insurance companies) or the risk of allegations of malpractice.
