Abstract: This paper evaluates classification accuracy of radial basis function (RBF) neural network and filter methods for feature selection in medical datasets. To improve the diagnostic procedure in the daily routine and to avoid wrong diagnosis, machine learning methods can be used. Diagnosis of tumours, heart disease, hepatitis, liver and Parkinson's diseases are a few of the medical problems which we have used in artificial neural networks. The main objective of this paper is to show that it is possible to improve the performance of the system for inductive learning rules with RBF neural network for medical classification problems, using the filter methods for feature selections. The aim of this research is also to present and compare different algorithm approach for the construction system that learns from experience and makes decisions and predictions and reduce the expected number or percentage of errors.
