Overview

This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 16th International Conference on Information Processing in Medical Imaging, IPMI'99, held in Visegrad, Hungary in June/July 1999.
The 24 revised full papers and the 28 posters presented have been carefully reviewed and selected from a total of 82 submissions. The volume addresses the full range of current topics in the area in particular new imaging techniques, 3D ultrasound and PET, segmentation, image analysis of the brain cortex, registration, feature, detection and modelling, cardiovascular image analysis, shape modelling and analysis, segmentation and detection, measurement and quantitative analysis, and analysis of image sequences and functional imaging.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Anne V. Clough, PhD (Marquette University)
Description: This book represents the proceedings of the 16th international conference on Information Processing in Medical Imaging. Contributions represent advanced level presentations on recent developments in medical image reconstruction and analysis.
Purpose: This volume consists of a relatively cohesive examination of a wide variety of medical imaging research areas and provides a mechanism for rapidly disseminating the results to the imaging community.
Audience: It is intended for active researchers involved in the development of medical image analysis algorithms and techniques (e.g., medical physicists or computer scientists). Although each paper includes an example of application of the analysis tool to medical images, it is not targeted towards practicing radiologists or intended to be a teaching tool. The papers are written by leading authorities in the medical imaging field.
Features: This book is distinguished from others of its kind by the focus on detailed algorithm development and quantitative image analysis. A relatively high degree of mathematical sophistication is required to appreciate many of the papers. The editors, as in previous proceedings from this meeting, provide a forum for the presentation of a broad range of techniques, with emphasis on their novel and quantitative aspects. The predominant themes are: new imaging techniques; three-dimensional imaging modalities; segmentation, registration, and feature and shape detection; and quantitative modeling and analysis of dynamic and functional images. There is special emphasis on image registration, warping, and shape modeling, coinciding with recent advances in multi-modality and dynamic imaging, while the inclusion of many papers describing quantification of physiologic parameters similarly follows developments in three-dimensional, functional, and dynamic imaging systems.
Assessment: This volume offers a high level presentation of state-of-the-art medical imaging algorithms. A wide range of topics is covered by leading researchers in the field. This is a fine successor to previous proceedings on Information Processing in Medical Imaging.
