The main aim of research in medical diagnostics is to develop more exact, cost-effective and easy-to-use systems, procedures and methods for supporting clinicians. In this paper the authors introduce a new method that recently came into the focus referred to as computer generated neural networks. Based on the literature of the past 5-6 years they give a brief review - highlighting the most important articles - showing the idea behind neural networks and where they are used in the medical field. The definition, structure and operation of neural networks are discussed. In the application section they discuss examples in order to give an insight into neural network application research. It is emphasized that in the near future completely new diagnostic equipment can be developed based on this new technology in the field of ECG, EEG and macroscopic and microscopic image analysis systems.
