In the recent era, the use of data analytics and machine learning algorithms has been observed in the arena of the medical field. Literature shows the successful application of data analytics and machine learning techniques for making predictions using real-time data collected from medical fields. The efficacy of machine learning models in image processing, big data analytics, object detection, automatic extraction, and tailoring of features is a great motivation for employing these models in the medical field. A boom in the use of machine learning and deep learning models is observed since the last decade. These models automatically extract the features from medical images, identify the most prominent features and predict diseases such as pneumonia, COVID-19, emphysema, lung tuberculosis, tumor, etc. can be predicted by training the deep learning model with chest radiographs and CT scans. These models not only predict the disease but are also useful in visualizing the infection in the organs. For reliable prediction, there is a need to design the custom architecture of the model. The architecture designer must focus on the size of the dataset, versatility, and quality of the dataset, types and number of predictions to be provided. The architecture is also dependent on the type of analysis required for disease prediction.

Literature reveals a lot of information about the design of methods for disease prediction.

But, poor availability of systematic information at one source becomes challenging for the students, academicians as well as researchers working in this field. Researchers face problems in identifying suitable algorithms for pre-processing, transformations, and integration of clinical data. They also seek different ways to build models, and prepare data sets for training and evaluating the models. Moreover, it becomes significant for them, to observe the impact of decision-making strategies on the accuracy and precision of the predictive models designed on the basis of techniques such as Logistic Regression, Neural Networks, Decision Trees, and Nearest Neighbors. Thus, there is a strong need of providing well-organized study material with practical aspects and validation. The book smartly fills the gaps.

This book invited ideas, proposals, review articles and experimental works from the researchers working in the field. The systematic organization of the research works in the field of applying machine learning for disease prediction will be fruitful in providing insights to readers about the existing works and the gaps available in the field. This book is a significant contribution towards providing a detailed study of data analytics algorithms and machine learning techniques for disease prediction. The book includes a rigorous review of related literature, methodology for data set preparation, model building, training, and testing the model. It contains a comparative analysis of versatile algorithms applied for making predictions in the challenging arena of medical science and disease prediction. The provides good insight into the topics such as Data Analytics, Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Information Retrieval from medical data, Data Integration, Prediction Models, Medical Data Analysis, Medical Decision Support systems, Federated Learning in Healthcare, and Medical Image Reconstruction.

The book is a companion and a must-read, for academicians, people from industries, graduate and post-graduate students, researchers, physicians and for everyone who is involved in the fields of medicine, data analytics or machine learning directly or indirectly. The book is compiled in such a way that each chapter is sufficient to give a complete study set from problem formulation to its solutions. All chapters are independent of each other and can be studied individually without consulting other chapters.

Each chapter starts with an abstract, important key terms, and an introduction to the topic. It is followed by related works, challenges identified, methodology, and experimental results. The chapter ends with the concluding remarks and future directions.

This book includes chapters in the following research areas:

  • Review in the fields of Data Analytics, Machine Learning, and Medical Data Analysis.
  • Federated Learning in Healthcare.
  • 3-Dimensional Image Reconstruction.
  • Applications and Practical Systems for Healthcare.
