Overview

A unique synthesis of scientific content and artistic style, Biomedical Imaging, Visualization, and Analysis provides a comprehensive overview of the advances spurring the evolution of imaging science and practice.

The focus of Biomedical Imaging, Visualization, and Analysis is on comprehensive explanation and ample illustration, rather than complex physics or mathematics. A brief review of fundamental principles and underlying theories precedes detailed discussions of innovative imaging methods, novel visualization techniques, new processing algorithms, image modeling, and biomedical applications useful in medical training. The scope of the book embraces CT and MR elastography, parametric displays, virtual reality, volumetric modeling algorithms, surgical and radiation treatment planning, image-guided diagnosis and treatment, virtual endoscopy, epilepsy imaging, and cardiac motion analysis.

Biomedical Imaging, Visualization, and Analysis is a work of extension and integration:
"Such works are challenging, but when realized, they do not become obsolete; rather, they form durable links in the chain that faithfully connects the past to the present, and the present to the future. This book attempts to meet that challenge and provide an enduring bridge in the expanding field of biomedical imaging." (from the Preface)

By the same author:

THREE-DIMENSIONAL BIOMEDICAL IMAGING

Principles and Practice

Presents the essential information required by basic scientists and medical practitioners in multidisciplinary fields to understand 3-D imaging and its effective uses in biology and medicine.

"Every now and then a book arrives on one's desk for review that is hard to put down, and which is clearly going to be an instant classic. Reviewers are sometimes able to write, 'This is the book I would have liked to have written.' If I were Richard Robb, I would be very proud of this work. It captured my attention and I read it almost from cover to cover."-Clinical Oncology

The book contains predominantly color illustrations, with some black-and-white illustrations.

Dr. Robb has an outstanding reputation in this field. Significant advances and improvements have been made in biomedical imaging since Dr. Robb's earlier book, Three-Dimenstional Biomedical Imaging (VCH, 1995). This is a more introductory and applications-oriented text. Its primary emphasis is on new and refined methods of imaging science and biomedical imaging. The book presents a synoptic illustration of the many current applications of biomedical imaging, including radiology, surgery, radiation oncology, endoscopy, anesthesiology, and medical training. Dr. Robb also provides a prognostic look at the continuing evolution of biomedical imaging technology and methodology.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: William R. Hendee, PhD (Medical College of Wisconsin)
Description: This book describes recent technical and procedural advances in biomedical imaging and the applications to clinical medicine and biomedical research.
Purpose: The author's intent is to provide a technical review of state-of-the-art biomedical imaging and the clinical and research applications. The technology of imaging is evolving rapidly, and a book that provides a snapshot of this evolution is very helpful. The book meets its intended purpose very well.
Audience: The audience includes practicing physicists, engineers, imaging scientists, and students in these disciplines. The author also identifies physicians as a potential audience, but it would be the rare physician who has the technical background to appreciate this book.
Features: Readers are introduced to state-of-the-art imaging techniques in biomedicine. Topics include image acquisition, representation, visualization, processing, analysis, and modeling. The final chapter provides excellent coverage of selected applications of new imaging technologies. Many superb illustrations accompany the text including several in full color.
Assessment: This book is a sequel to the author's text Three Dimensional Biomedical Imaging: Principles and Practices (VCH Publishers) that was published in 1995. It builds on this earlier text, and is a superb contribution to the field by one of its pioneers. I recommend it highly to every physicist, engineer, and imaging scientist who is seeking a comprehensive overview of state-of-the-art imaging systems in clinical medicine and biomedical research.

This sequel to published in 1995, documents some of the important methodological and technological advances and growing applications in the field of biomedical imaging. Although it includes a review of fundamental principles and underlying theories as well as some of the more important durable material, it mainly emphasizes new and refined methods for visualization and analysis, especially on a variety of emergent successful applications such as spiral and multidetector CT and MR elastography, parametric displays and virtual reality, joint entrophy registration and automatic classification, algorithms and translating "pixels to polygons" to obtain highly accurate anatomic models, and other recent clinical and biological applications, including uses in medical training. Contains many color and b&w illustrations. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
