The aim of this paper is to explore the application of Neuro-Evolutionary Techniques to the diagnosis of various diseases. We applied the evolutionary technique of Cartesian Genetic programming Evolved Artificial Neural Network (CG-PANN) for the detection of three important diseases. Some cases showed excellent results while others are in the process of experimentation. In the first case we worked on diagnosing the extent of Parkinson's disease using a computer based test. Experiments in this case are in progress. In the second case, we applied the Fine Needle Aspirate (FNA) data for Breast Cancer from the WDBC website to our network to classify the samples as either benign (non-cancerous) or malignant (cancerous). The results from these experiments were highly satisfactory. In the third case, we developed a modified form of Pan-Tompkins's algorithm to detect the fiducial points from ECG signals and extracted key features from them. The features shall be applied to our network to classify the signals for the different types of Arrhythmias. Experimentation is still in progress.
