This paper gives a survey of intelligent computational techniques in medical and health care system. First, we briefly describe diagnosable techniques in medical image processing. Next, we demonstrate two ultrasonic surgery support systems for orthopedic and rectum cancer surgeons. In them, intelligent computational technique plays a primary role. Third, computational techniques are introduced in human health care system. Usually, this goal is not to apply clinical treatment but to home use to pay consciousness to health. In it, a simple ECG and respiration meter are introduced with a mat sheet which detects heart rate and respiration. Finally, a medical big data application is introduced, that is, body weight prediction is shown based on autoregressive model. Thus, we show that intelligent computing is effective and essential in modern medical and health care system.
