Applied Medical Image Processing

Magnetic Resonance Imaging

A Basic Course, Second Edition

The Basics

Wolfgang Birkfellner

University of Cyprus, Nicosia

Medical University of Vienna, Austria

One of the most powerful diagnostic techniques available, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can detect everything from a torn meniscus to cancer. In fact, MRI is becoming the predominant imaging modality in hospitals and clinics, due to its ability to provide clear images of body parts that, in some instances, can't be seen as well with an x-ray, CAT scan, or ultrasound.

This Second Edition of a bestseller gives more attention to the subject of color space and incorporates more examples from radiology, internal medicine, surgery, and radiation therapy. Applied Medical Image Processing: A Basic Course addresses problems with handling voxels, 3D data sets, spatial transforms in three dimensions, and data fusion. It shows how to visualize large data sets from modern CT systems, manufacture patient-specific prostheses, plan dose distributions, incorporate multimodal image data for therapy monitoring, and perform computer-aided neurosurgical interventions.

Features: • Illustrates how algorithms are implemented using MATLAB®, Octave, and Harvard’s Slicer 3.6 • Discusses composing color images in MATLAB and the Fourier transform in one dimension • Contains a new chapter on clinical applications • Includes data sets and MATLAB on CD-ROM Solutions manual and figure slides available with qualifying course adoption
