Original Abstract

There is a niche for books that would respect the particularities of biomedical orientation while still providing a consistent, theoretically exact, and yet comprehensible explanation of the underlying theoretical concepts and principles of methods of image processing as applied in the broad field of medical and other application fields. The present book is intended in this direction. The content of the book has been divided into three parts. The first part Images as multidimensional signals provides the introductory chapters on the basic image processing theory. The second part Imaging systems as data sources is intended as an alternative view on the imaging modalities. While the physical principles are limited to the extent necessary to explain the imaging properties, the emphasis is put on analysing the internal signals and (pre)image data that are to be consequently processed. With respect to this goal, also the technological solutions and details of the imaging systems are almost omitted. The third part Image processing and analysis starts with the tomographic image reconstruction; of fundamental importance in medical imaging. Another topical theme of medical imaging is the image fusion, including multimodal image registration. Further, methods of image enhancement and restoration are treated in individual chapters. A chapter is devoted to image analysis, including segmentation, as a preparation for diagnostics. The concluding chapter on image processing environment briefly comments on the used hardware and software means, and on processing aspects of image archiving and communication, including principles of image data compression.
