Preface Deep learning has been rapidly developed in the recent years, in terms of both methodological development and practical applications. It provides computational models of multiple processing layers to learn and represent data with multiple levels of abstraction. It is able to implicitly capture intricate structures of large-scale data and is ideally suited to some of the hardware architectures that are currently available. The purpose of this book is to provide a diverse, but complementary, set of contributions to demonstrate new developments and applications of deep learning and computational machine learning to solve problems in biomedical engineering. The proposed book will be organized as a reference source for enabling readers to have an idea about the relation between deep learning and biomedical engineering. In Chapter 1, survey of deep learning is used for image classification, carotid ultrasound data investigation, cardiotocography, intravascular ultrasound report, lung CT report, brain tumor prediction, object detection, segmentation, breast cancer prediction, ECG (electrocardiogram) signal, EEG (electroencephalogram), PPG signal registration, and psoriasis skin disease as well as cancer detection. Concise summaries are delivered of trainings per application zone: pulmonary, musculoskeletal neuro, digital pathology, and abdominal, retinal, breast, and cardiac. There are various types of deep learning techniques present to improve accuracy of the medical dataset. Chapter 2 provides a detailed discussion on different convolutional neural network (CNN) architectures and their applications in the medical imaging domain. Moreover, a stateof-the-art comparison has been carried out between several existing works inside medical imaging based on CNN. Lastly, the work concludes with several critical remarks highlighting future challenges and their solutions. Chapter 3 discusses about the class of tools that enable deep learning engineers to actually do their work faster and more effectively. Some of the tools include TensorFlow, Keras, Caffe, and Torch. Deep learning models make use of several kinds of



advanced algorithms. Some algorithms are best suited to perform specific tasks. In order to choose the right ones, it is good to gain grasp of all primary algorithms. Excellent knowledge of advanced deep learning techniques, their types, and applications can help users execute them for various purposes. Chapter 4 aims at critically analyzing the existing techniques used in blockchains and their suitability in education domain. The advantages and challenges in using blockchain-based applications in education are also discussed in this chapter. Security breaches and attacks on using blockchains are discussed along with possible countermeasures. A plan of how existing models can be improved to enhance performance of blockchains in applications belonging to education is also discussed. Chapter 5 investigates the use of different deep neural network architectures and natural language processing for depression detection in cancer communities. Depression detection using sentiment affect can be of great assistance to the doctors treating cancer patients and aid them in deciding whether along with the cancer treatment their patients need help from psychologists or psychiatrists. Chapter 6 focuses on early disease recognition that requires high-resolution images. After a preprocessing step using a contrast enhancement method, all the diseased blobs are segmented for the whole dataset. A list of several measurementbased features that represent the blobs is chosen and selected based on principle component analysis. The features are used as inputs for a standard feedforward neural network. Our results show competitive classification results not only with other deep learning approaches, such as CNNs, but also with a simpler network structure. Chapter 7 determines how deep learning helps in the early diagnosis of several diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, rheumatic diseases, autism spectrum disorder, and more. After expanding upon the basics of deep learning and biomedical engineering, the chapter explores more upon diagnostics using deep learning and discusses the early diagnosis of certain diseases. Chapter 8 details on the advancement in the subset of machine learning; the deep learning made this research area into high potential in terms of precise prediction and accuracy. Many versions of deep learningebased architecture are implemented along with various nonvisualization and visualization techniques


to classify and detect the symptoms of plant disease with several performance metrics. This chapter illustrates a comprehensive review of deep learning models used to detect plant diseases, and in some cases, the diseases have been identified before the symptoms appear clearly. Chapter 9 discusses about fundamentals of biomedical engineering and deep learning. It also explores about applications of deep learning in various problems of biomedical field. Chapter 10 discusses the fundamentals of image processing first, including segmentation and edge detection, followed by identifying critical areas in biomedical images, denoising, and applying image processing technique on various available biomedical image datasets. The authors focus on tissue segmentation, application of CNN in interpreting biomedical images, usage of different deep learning libraries for identifying areas of interest in a biomedical image, computer-aided disease diagnosis or prognosis, and so on. We will conclude by raising research issues and suggesting future directions for further improvements. The aim of this book is to support the computational studies at the research and postgraduation level with open problemsolving techniques. We are confident that it will bridge the gap for them by supporting novel solution in their problem solving. At the end, editors have taken utmost care while finalizing the chapters to the book, but we are open to receive your constructive feedback, which will enable us to carry out necessary points in our forthcoming books.

About the book Deep learning (DL) is a method of machine learning, as running over artificial neural networks, which has a structure above the standards to deal with large amounts of data. This is generally because of the increasing amount of data, input data sizes, and, of course, greater complexity of objective real-world problems. Research studies performed in the associated literature show that the DL currently has a good performance among considered problems and seems to be a strong solution for more advanced problems of the future. In this context, this book aims to provide some essential information about DL and its applications within the field of biomedical engineering. Due to numerous biomedical information sensing devices, such as computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, ultrasound, single photon emission computed tomography, positron emission tomography, magnetic particle imaging, EE/MEG, optical microscopy and tomography, photoacoustic tomography, electron tomography, and atomic force microscopy, large amount of biomedical information was gathered these years. This poses a great challenge on how to develop new advanced imaging methods and computational models for efficient data processing, analysis, and modeling in clinical applications and in understanding the underlying biological process.

1. Introduction Death from breast cancer [7,8,11,14,34,35] may be avoided by detecting the risks of medical patients and discussing them effectively [3]. One of the known risks for tumor development besides age, gender, gene mutations, and family history is the comparative sum of radiodense tissue in the female breast, called mammographic density [26e30]. By using a stacked autoencoder we can more accurately predict brain tumors. C-means, K-means, and DBSCAN clustering techniques are used to detect affected areas in medical images. There are various types of nature-inspired algorithms used to optimize the performance of clustering that provide better results. Segmentation of brain [31] and liver tumors provides [9,10,12,13,23] important biomarkers for medical diagnosis [24,25]. Here, we present and authenticate a procedure to integrate an improved edge pointer and derive an initial curve for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-based disease segmentation from the dataset. At the preprocessing step, the computed tomography (CT) image intensity values were truncated to lie in a fixed range to enhance the image contrast surrounding the organ and the disease-affected area. To eliminate nonliver tissues for the following segmentation of the disease, the liver is segmented by two convolutional neural networks (CNNs) [15,21e23] in a coarse-to-fine manner. Here, we present a new procedure for combining high-resolution photorealistic medical images from the semantic label charts with conditional generative adversarial networks (GANs). A GAN [32,33] is a type of deep learning method made up of two neural networks in conflict with each other in a zero-sum game outline.

Chapter 1 Congruence of deep learning in biomedical engineering

The combination of two neural networks that make up an architecture of a GAN are: • a generator with the objective of producing new examples of a thing, which will be indistinguishable from real ones, and • a discriminator with an area that classifies the duplicate (whether the particular part of the organ is affected or not in a disease). This architecture can be used in text, images, video, and audio. There are various types of CNN, which are described in [33] (Table 1.1). Currently, coronavirus (COVID-19) is a fatal disease. By using deep learning we can predict the rate of the disease and which area is affected most. From Fig. 1.1 [36], we show the artificial intelligence (AI) procedure used for coronavirus. Fig. 1.2 introduces the procedure of training and testing of data. Figs. 1.3, 1.5 and 1.6, describe the SqueezeNet and Fire model architecture, and Fig. 1.4 shows the GAN architecture. Sections 2 and 3 introduce the encryption as well as decryption of medical images to preserve authenticity. For this reason, no one can alter the patient’s personal data, which may compromise the patient’s medical information. In today’s world, the movement of information utilizing the Internet is developing quickly. Thus many users can transfer business reports and significant data, for example, by utilizing the web. Security is a significant issue when transferring information utilizing the web because unapproved individuals can hack into the information for various reasons. In data storage, cryptography and steganography are the most utilized methods for sending delicate and private data safely. An exceptional mainstream procedure to secure significant data over the Internet is the cryptography technique. In this strat-

aggressor by disguising the data inside the bearer. This approach provides higher security and can guarantee message delivery. Steganography is the practice of hiding information within other less secret information. It is a Greek word: stegano infers covered or concealed and graphy infers writing. There are many ways to hide information, for instance, propelled pictures, chronicles, sound reports, and other PC records; however, modernized pictures are the most notable.

The procedure of stego image embedding as well as the extraction procedure is described in Fig. 1.11 by using an autoencoder, which is a deep learning technique. We can also use other deep learning models like CNN, GAN, etc. By using these types of image encryption as well as decryption methods, hospitals/physicians can preserve a patient’s information in the patient report, MRI, and CT scan data.
