In this study, a deep neural network classifier is proposed for the classification of coronary artery disease medical data sets. The proposed classifier is tested on reference CAD data sets from the literature and also compared with popular representative classification methods regarding its classification performance. Experimental results show that the deep neural network classifier offers much better accuracy, sensitivity and specificity rates when compared with other methods. The proposed method presents itself as an easily accessible and cost-effective alternative to currently existing methods used for the diagnosis of CAD and it can be applied for easily checking whether a given subject under examination has at least one occluded coronary artery or not.
