This chapter discusses pattern classification of high dimensional medical datasets of breast, brain, and retinal tissue on the basis of their extracted features. The extracted features can show linear or non-linear separability, furthermore, they may also be multi-modal or highly correlated. Different algorithms that can be used to generate decision boundaries associated with the observed features are considered.
