Medical diagnosis requires a proficiency in dealing with uncertainty which is merely not present in today’s computing machinery. In this paper we mainly focus on Ischemic Heart Disease (IHD) detection and state identification using Doppler Effect technique and Artificial Neural Network. This technique is used to identify and detect the Heart disease in the healthcare monitoring system. The present work involves PreProcessing, Filtering, Feature extraction, Classification and Detecting the stage. Doppler ultrasound utilized for distinguishing IHD and measuring picture bloodstream and other development inside the Heart. Image pre-preparing is more vital to advance change and in the quality of future handling and study. Filtering techniques are being used for preprocessing in which the average filters are one of the most common filtering techniques that are used to remove the noise, improve the quality of the image, preserves the image edges, and smoothen the image. Next process is feature extraction technique, in which the wavelength decomposition properties of the Doppler Heart Ultrasound (DHS) image are extricated. Doppler ultrasound is needed in order to reduce the data volume and achieve a low bit rate, ideally without a loss in the image quality. Artificial Neural Network (ANN) classifier is a possible effective classification method. All the procedures are utilized to recognize a technique that can give superior accuracy and determine the best (DHS) images for use in diagnosing Ischemic heart disease.
