Operating at the intersection of bioengineering, computer science, and diagnostic radiology, medical imaging and analysis continues to evolve with new imaging modalities and improved device capabilities, many of these based on artifical intelligence. Computational Intelligence in Medical Imaging: Techniques and Applications
provides an authoritative source of current research and methodology in soft computing as it relates to imaging. The book presents developments in image visualization, display, and image-guided procedures authored by pioneers in the field. It also covers the physics of medical imaging; the physiology, function, and structure of medical images; image processing; imaging informatics; image perception, observer performance, and technology assessment; and ultrasonic imaging and signal processing. In addition to technology advances, the editors have included disucssions on clinical decision making, artificial intelligence in medical education, and medcial knowledge engineering.
