The book provides a convenient reference for results and current trends in the field of Biomedical Imaging. It brings together in one volume 11 chapters concerned with the different aspects of biomedical imaging in terms of basic engineering issues (reconstruction, visualization, segmentation, texture, modelling, interpretation and fusion) and of biological and medical issues (macromolecule study, X-ray imaging, ultrasound imaging, computed tomography, emission computed tomography, surgery, morphology, anthropometrics, forensic science, computer integrated surgery and therapy and cinical evaluation). A review of the general approach and major applications is provided in the introductory chapter. The other topics are treated in dedicated chapters, written by leading European researchers in Biomedical Imaging, and provides the reader with up-to-date, state-of-the-art knowledge on emerging areas.
