Biomedical Imaging, Visualization, and Analysis / Edition 1 available in Hardcover
- Pub. Date:
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 PracticePresents 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
