Deformable Models: Biomedical and Clinical Applications

Front Cover
Aly Farag
Springer Science & Business Media, Aug 21, 2007 - Medical - 556 pages

In the biomedical field, biomedical imaging has come to be a discipline of its own, given the nature of its applications in the understanding of the human body and medical diagnostics. The understanding of Deformable Models are the significant utility on biomedical imagery primarily because of its ability to perform efficient topology preservation and fast shape recovery. This has dominated the binary, grayscale and color imaging frameworks, which the eye can perceive. It has not only the ability to find boundaries and surfaces that are deep seated in 2-D and 3-D volumes respectively, but also provide satisfactory solutions for the completion of cognitive objects with missing boundaries.

Deformable Models: Biomedical and Clinical Applications will focus on the core mage processing techniques for biomedical and clinical applications.
