Are there any medical diagnosis systems that are already used somewhere that are based on artificial neural networks?

    $\begingroup$ Great and salient question. My general sense is that NNs are getting very good at this, and I wouldn't be surprised if this is an area where automata exceed humans, in all but exceptional cases. Welcome to SE:AI! $\endgroup$

Yes, there are many, actually. A Google search turned this paper Artificial Neural Networks in Medical Diagnosis (2011) by Al-Shayea up.

Not only are they used in disease diagnosis, but even with things like prescribing medicines. In fact, the top project for a hackathon at my school analysed thousands of research articles, and took a patient's medication history as input, to best recommend them specific medicines. Check it out.
