Handbook of Medical Imaging
Kurzbeschreibung The only major medical imaging handbook which no image processing engineer or radiologist can afford to be without! Medical imaging has seen rapid advances in the technology of image processing and radiology. This visually stunning Handbook is the first book to provide the most comprehensive information available on medical image processing from the perspective, and taking into consideration the needs, of both the medical and engineering communities. Engineers and computer professionals will gain a thorough understanding of medical instrumentation, applications and diagnostic techniques, while medical professionals will benefit from a thorough background in image processing. The Handbook of Medical Imaging is divided into two sections. The first section covers the principles of signal processing and image processing whilst the second concentrates on state-of-the-art coverage of the major technologies and disciplines of medical imaging like MRI, CTXray and Ultrasound.
