  abstract =     "We present a novel technique where a medical image
                 segmentation system is evolved using genetic
                 programming. The evolved system was trained on just 8
                 images outlined by a clinical expert and generalised
                 well, achieving high performance rates on over 90
                 unseen test images (average sensitivity 97% , average
                 specificity 81%). This method learns by example and
                 produces fully automatic algorithms needing no human
                 interaction or parameter tuning, which although
                 complex, runs in approximately 4 seconds.",
