Overview

Presents a collection of chapters contributed by leading experts in the areas of angiography acquisition, the post-processing of angiography volumetric data sets, and applications of vascular segmentation techniques Bridges the gap between academia and industry with contributors from both sides of engineering and mathematics Covers state-of-the-art issues, such as white blood, black blood in MRI, and intravascular ultrasound Includes more than 900 illustrations—over 50 in full color Recent, rapid advances in mathematical engineering and applied mathematics have opened the door to solving complex problems in angiography imaging. For the first time, this book presents the different medical imaging modalities—MR, CTx-ray, and ultrasound—for performing angiography and its analysis. Pioneers from a variety of relevant disciplines address state-of-the-art issues related to angiography, pre- and post angiography imaging, and their applications, such as intravascular ultrasound and x-ray fusion, plaque imaging, and morphology analysis. Their presentations cover most of the segmentation algorithms for anatomic blood vessels of the body, such as the brain, aorta, and retina.

Table of Contents

Recent, rapid advances in mathematical engineering and applied mathematics have opened the door to solving complex problems in angiography imaging. For the first time, this book presents the different medical imaging modalities - MR, CT, x-ray, and ultrasound - for performing angiography and its analysis. Pioneers from a variety of relevant disciplines address state-of-the-art issues related to angiography, pre- and post angiography imaging, and their applications, such as intravascular ultrasound and x-ray fusion, plaque imaging, and morphology analysis. Their presentations cover most of the segmentation algorithms for anatomic blood vessels of the body, such as the brain, aorta, and retina.
