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.
