Overview

Three-Dimensional Biomedical Imaging Principles and Practice Richard A. Robb Since the invention of the microscope and the discovery of X-rays, physicians and scientists have used images to diagnose and treat disease and to understand better basic physiology and biology. The full scientific, educational, and biomedical value of images produced by instruments that extend the range of human vision is profoundly significant. The recent development of advanced methods to fully analyze the intrinsic information in biomedical images has begun to unearth the rich treasures to be found. Three-Dimensional Biomedical Imaging provides an overview of biomedical imaging science, technology, and practice. This book succinctly 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. Beginning with basic principles, the author systematically covers simple-to-sophisticated methodologies, and concludes with examples of current applications and implications for future advances. Emphasis is placed on relevant significant, current issues and approaches in 3-D biomedical imaging, with generous illustration throughout. This valuable reference work offers a unique compilation and synthesis of the seminal historical contributions; evolutionary and proven modalities and methodologies; relevant theoretical and practical issues; and likely future advances and directions in the field of biomedical imaging. Also Available from VCH Imaging Systems for Medical Diagnosis Edited by E. Krestel Hardcover (ISBN 3-8009-1564-2, Siemens) Visualization in Biomedical Microscopies Edited byA. Kriete Hardcover (ISBN 3-527-28445-1, VCH, Weinheim)

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

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: William R. Hendee, PhD (Medical College of Wisconsin)
Description: This book is a broad overview of three-dimensional biomedical imaging. It assumes that the reader has little background in the science of imaging, and proceeds to provide a thorough and comprehensive analysis of three-dimensional imaging applied to biological systems, particularly the human body.
Purpose: The intent is to present and describe three-dimensional biomedical imaging, and the philosophy, paradigm for scientific investigation, and environment required for three-dimensional imaging to contribute meaningfully to medical imaging practice. This objective is highly worthwhile, and is accomplished more completely in this book than in any other book on biomedical imaging on the market today.
Audience: The book is written principally for scientists and graduate students interested in the principles of biomedical imaging and their applications to specific imaging challenges. It also will be of interest to physicians interested in the three-dimensional visualization of biomedical tissues. The author is a widely known and highly respected medical physicist at the Mayo Clinic.
Features: This book is about imaging, and as might be expected, the quality of the illustrations, including clinical images, is superb. The illustrations are an essential feature of the book. The text is relatively nonmathematical and is written to be intelligible to the non-expert. The references are limited in number, but are up-to-date. The index is marginally adequate at best. The book has a paper cover, is attractive in appearance, and is logically and thoughtfully organized.
Assessment: This book is an excellent contribution to the field of biomedical imaging, and will be useful particularly to scientists working in imaging, image reconstruction and processing, and image display and analysis. It will also be of interest to some scientists and physicians using three-dimensional images in research and clinical medicine. Its usefulness as a text for graduate students may be restricted somewhat by its lack of mathematical detail concerning image transform and reconstruction algorithms. The book will be a useful addition not only to institutional libraries, but also to those of scientists and physicians developing and interpreting three-dimensional images in research and clinical medicine.
