About this Research Topic
With the development of advanced medical imaging techniques, a huge amount of medical images have been produced in various healthcare institutes and hospitals. Especially, there is a growing research interest on a more multidisciplinary approach to investigate brain structure or function in living humans or animals. In order to better interpret brain images, there is an increasing demand to introduce artificial intelligence methods such as machine learning, expert systems, robotics and perception, and evolutionary computation to automatically exploit useful information besides visual features. It should be pointed out that brain images themselves exhibit several distinguishing features that add to the difficulties in their analysis. In recent years, there have been many new research achievements in each aspect of artificial intelligence for brain images analysis. This Research Topic seeks original contributions which address the challenges of artificial intelligence for brain images analysis and welcomes researchers in this field to share their experiences and new research achievements.
