The Physics of Diagnostic Imaging Second Edition

David Dowsett, Patrick A Kenny, R Eugene Johnston
April 28, 2006

Over recent years there has been a vast expansion in the variety of imaging techniques available, and developments in machine specifications continue apace. If radiologists and radiographers are to obtain optimal image quality while minimising exposure times, a good understanding of the...

Medical Image Processing, Reconstruction and Restoration: Concepts and Methods

Jiri Jan, Jiri Jan
November 02, 2005

It is essential that differently oriented specialists and students involved in image processing have a firm grasp of the necessary concepts and principles. A single-source reference that can provide this foundation, as well as a thorough explanation of the techniques involved, particularly those...

Medical Image Analysis Methods

Lena Costaridou
July 13, 2005

To successfully detect and diagnose disease, it is vital for medical diagnosticians to properly apply the latest medical imaging technologies. It is a worrisome reality that due to either the nature or volume of some of the images provided, early or obscured signs of disease can go undetected or be...

Biomedical Image Analysis

S McVitie, D McComb
February 19, 2004

Electron microscopy is now a mainstay characterization tool for solid state physicists and chemists as well as materials scientists. Containing the proceedings from the Electron Microscopy and Analysis Group (EMAG) conference in September 2003, this volume covers current developments in the field,...

Cardiac Ultrasound

Leonard M. Shapiro, Antoinette Kenny
January 06, 2003

From its humble beginnings in the 1950's as an adaptation of marine sonar systems, echocardiography has recently grown rapidly in its usage and importance. Advanced computer techniques now allow imaging of the heart in many planes through many 'windows'. Each section of this book contains all forms...

Biomedical Imaging in Experimental Neuroscience

Nick Van Bruggen, Timothy P.L. Roberts
December 23, 2002

Recent years have seen an explosion of activity in the field of biomedical imaging in an attempt to understand the behavior of the brain in healthy and disease states. With the emergence of genetically manipulated laboratory mice and the knowledge of the mouse genome, we are entering an exciting...

Medical Image Registration

Joseph V. Hajnal, Derek L.G. Hill
June 27, 2001

Image registration is the process of systematically placing separate images in a common frame of reference so that the information they contain can be optimally integrated or compared. This is becoming the central tool for image analysis, understanding, and visualization in both medical and...

Image Analysis: Methods and Applications, Second Edition

Donat P. Hader
August 23, 2000

Automatic image analysis has become an important tool in many fields of biology, medicine, and other sciences. Since the first edition of Image Analysis: Methods and Applications, the development of both software and hardware technology has undergone quantum leaps. For example, specific...

Radiology Life Support (RAD-LS): A Practical Approach

William Bush Jr, Karl Krecke MD, Bernard King, Jr., Michael Bettmann
April 30, 1999

'Radiology Life Support' focuses on the adverse effects and life-threatening emergencies caused by reactions to the contrast media used in every modern radiology department. Such reactions are relatively infrequent yet can be severe and are therefore difficult to identify and then handle safely...
