Application of computers in assisting medical diagnosis (computer aided diagnosis) has a long tradition (1). Nevertheless, there is a limited number of papers published which deal with optimization of this type of diagnostic system (2,3). At present, the process of medical diagnosis is still little recognized, and it is difficult to prematurely evaluate which computer system would serve best here, and which selected input parameters would be optimal for these purposes (4).
