Abstract

Neurological diseases are diseases of the nervous system that occur due to structural or biochemical abnormalities in the brain and nervous system. A diverse set of neurological diseases with varied symptoms makes it complicated to diagnose them with a standard protocol. Nevertheless, medical imaging can play a significant role in their early diagnosis by providing an accurate visualisation of internal body structures. However, analysis of the medical images mostly involves significant human intervention in complex disease cases. This process is not only time-intensive, but also laborious, and exhibits inter- and intra-observer variances. To this end, this study contributes to automating the..
