In this paper, we propose an approach for detection of anomalies present in medical images. The idea is to combine tow metaphors: Neural Networks (NN) and Evolutionary Algorithm (EA) in a hybrid system. The Radial Basis Function Neural Network (RBF NN) and Multi Population Genetic Algorithm (MPGA) are coupled in one system called neural-evolutionary algorithm. After applying the growing region algorithm to extract regions, the RBF NN detects the suspect regions. Some of experimental results on mammographic images show the feasibility of the proposed approach.
