Over the past few decades, machine leaning plays an essential role in the medical imaging field, including medical image analysis, computer-aided diagnosis, organ/ lesion segmentation, image fusion, image-guided therapy, image annotation and image retrieval, because objects such as lesions and anatomy in medical images cannot be modeled accurately by simple equations; thus, tasks in medical imaging require learning from examples. ML provides methods, techniques, and tools that can help solving diagnostic and prognostic problems in a variety of medical domains. ML is being used for the analysis of the importance of clinical parameters and of their combinations for prognosis, e.g., prediction of disease progression, for the extraction of medical knowledge for outcomes research, for therapy planning and support, and for overall patient management.ML is also being used for data analysis, such as detection of regularities in the data by appropriately dealing with imperfect data, interpretation of continuous data used in the Intensive Care Unit, and for intelligent alarming resulting in effective and efficient monitoring. Machine learning systems are a well-established paradigm with current systems having many of the characteristics of biological computers and being capable of performing a variety of tasks that are difficult or impossible to do using conventional techniques. The combination or integration of more distinct intelligent methodologies can be done in any form, either by a modular integration of two or more intelligent methodologies, which maintains the identity of each methodology, or by integrating one methodology into another, or by transforming the knowledge representation in one methodology into another form of representation, characteristic to another methodology. Neural networks and rough sets are widely used for classification and rule generation. Instead of solving a problem using a single machine learning technique like neural network, rough sets, fuzzy image processing alone. On the other hand, rough fuzzy hybridization is a new approach of hybrid intelligent system or machine learning technologies where fuzzy set theory is used for linguistic representation of patterns, leading to a fuzzy granulation of the feature space. Rough set theory is used to obtain dependency rules which model informative regions in the granulated feature space.

The objective of this special issue is to showcase the most recent developments and research in the field of medical diagnosis using rough sets and fuzzy set hybridization approaches with other intelligent as well as to enhance its state-of-the-art. This special issue solicits original, full length original articles on new findings and developments from researchers, academicians and practitioners from industries, in the area of rough set theory for medical diagnosis.
