Abstract: Nowadays in medical field the major concern lies in the field of liver, renal diseases. Liver is the largest organ in the body and it is the factory which processes all the foods we taken. We should keep liver in perfect condition. But today there were lot of Liver, renal damages occurred commonly. where sluggish lifestyle of humans and escalated alcohol abuse has become dangerously common, liver ,kidney health have regained focus. This can cause liver cirrhosis and liver dysfunction. The main solution for this is transplantation surgeries. In most of the cases, transplantation surgeries are successful. But after few days normal patients become die. its a very common news. This is because of the lack of ideal drug dosage prediction. Today all of the medical practitioners calculate manually using some patients responses towards the drug. So it is not a systematic approach. Only purely mathematical approach is available for calculating drug dosage. To achieve an optimal drug dosage calculation, proposed model will automate this system based on some patients response data like cell viability, drug trough level, Creatine Test result, biopsy result, MELD score etc using some artificial intelligence techniques like neural networks. The human and monetary of both optimal and Sub- optimal drug dosage may be deduced from the action of various optimized neural networks. Neural networks provide sceptical help to doctors. Currently there is no system will automize this dosage calculation. This calculation based on patients responses after transplantation surgery. Normally start with zero level dosage of medicines. After few days the ideal drug usage calculations occurred based on some observing patients different levels of data. Automate this system will help to doctors to calculate automatically the optimal usage of drugs makes precise calculations in the patients health.
