Artificial neural networks (ANNs) are widely available and have been demonstrated to be superior to standard empirical methods of detecting, staging and monitoring prostate cancer. These algorithms have been statistically validated in diverse, well-characterized patient groups and are now being evaluated for clinical use worldwide. New variables based on demographic data, tissue and serum markers show promise for improving our ability to predict disease extent and outcome and may be integrated in future ANN models. This review focuses on recently developed neural networks for detecting, staging and monitoring prostate cancer.
