This Special Issue is focused on advanced techniques in signal processing, analysis, modelling, and classification, applied to a variety of medical diagnostic problems. Biomedical data play a fundamental role in many fields of research and clinical practice. Very often the complexity of these data and their large volume makes it necessary to develop advanced analysis techniques and systems. Furthermore, the introduction of new techniques and methodologies for diagnostic purposes, especially in the field of medical imaging, requires new signal processing and machine learning methods. The recent progress in machine learning techniques, and in particular deep learning, revolutionized various fields of artificial vision, significantly pushing the state of the art of artificial vision systems into a wide range of high-level tasks. Such progress can help address problems in the analysis of biomedical data.This Special Issue placed particular emphasis on contributions dealing with practical, applications-led research, on the use of methods and devices in clinical diagnosis. The works that make up this special issue show a remarkable variety of applications for the detection and classification of medical imaging problems. In particular, the aforementioned works can be divided on the basis of types of techniques used, into three categories—signal processing (SP) methods, traditional machine learning (ML) methods, and deep learning (DL) methods.
