Colorectal cancer is the third most common and second most lethal tumor globally, causing 900,000 deaths annually. In this research, a computer aided diagnosis system was designed that detects colorectal cancer, using an innovative dataset composing of both numeric (blood and urine analysis) and qualitative data (living environment of the patient, tumor position, T, N, M, Dukes classification, associated pathology, technical approach, complications, incidents, ultrasonography-dimensions as well as localization). The intelligent computer aided colorectal cancer diagnosis system was designed using different machine learning techniques, such as classification and shallow and deep neural networks. Read More
