In modern medicine, imaging is the most effective tool for diagnostics, treatment planning and therapy. Almost all modalities have went to directly digital acquisition techniques and processing of this image data have become an important option for health care in future. This book is written by a team of internationally recognized experts from all over the world. It provides a brief but complete overview on medical image processing and analysis highlighting recent advances that have been made in academics. Color figures are used extensively to illustrate the methods and help the reader to understand the complex topics.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

From the reviews:

“The book … contains useful information for anyone interested in medical and biomedical image processing. … this book is a rich and valuable compendium of chapters that cover the current art in biomedical image processing. This is a reference book or textbook for imaging informatics professionals, radiologists, physicists, researchers, scientists, and students interested in the rapidly changing world of imaging and image processing tools and options.” (Janice Honeyman-Buck, Journal of Digital Imaging, Vol. 25, 2012)

“The book is indeed comprehensive, covering all steps in image processing: from image formation via image enhancement, image visualization to image analysis and image management. … It is ‘comprehensive but short, up-to-date but essential and detailed but illustrative’. Also it can be used both by novices (with a mathematical and physics background) and experts, as the editor expressed as a goal. I therefore can recommend this textbook to all interested in learning more about or getting an overview of biomedical image processing methods.”­­­ (Arie Hasman, International Journal of Medical Informatics, Vol. 80, 2011)

“A text that is suitable for clinicians, scientists, and engineers interested in the important topic of how clinical and biomedical images can best be processed for features quantification, and to enhance important visual detail. … The chapters are directed at both students and professors. The aim of each chapter is to cover recent advances and to provide up-to-date information, which is done well. … The text is eminently readable, and would be quite suitable as an undergraduate course text.” (Edward J. Ciaccio, BioMedical Engineering OnLine, Vol. 10 (101), 2011)
