Abstract

Neural network technology plays an important role in the development of newmedical diagnostic assistance or what is known as “computer aided” that based onimage recognition.Thispaper study the method used integration of back propagationneural network and Particle Swarm Optimizing (PSO) in parts of recognition the XRayof lungs for two disease cases (cancer and TB) along with the normal case. Theexperiments show that the improvement of algorithms for recognition side hasachieved a good result reached to 88.398% for input image size 1024 pixel and 500population size. The efficiency and recognition testes for training method wasperformed and reported in this paper
