In this study, a deep Group Method of Data Handling (GMDH)-type neural network using principal component-regression is applied to the medical image recognition of the heart regions. The deep GMDH-type neural network algorithm can organize the neural network architecture with many hidden layers fitting the complexity of the nonlinear systems so as to minimize the prediction error criterion defined as AIC (Akaike’s Information Criterion) or PSS (Prediction Sum of Squares). This algorithm is applied to the medical image recognition of the heart regions and it is shown that this algorithm is useful for the medical image recognition of the heart regions because deep neural network architecture is automatically organized using the principal component-regression analysis from the medical images of the heart regions.
