Multimedia information technologies, which provide comprehensive and intuitive information for a broad range of applications, have a strong impact on modem life, and have changed our way of learning and thinking. Over the past two decades, there has been an explosive growth in the use of digital multimedia (including audio, video, images and graphics) over the Internet and wireless communication. As the use of digital multimedia increases, effective data storage and management become increasingly important. In fields which use large quantities of data (e. g. audio, video, image and digital libraries; geographical and medical image databases; etc), we need to minimize the volume of data stored while meeting the often conflicting demand for accurate data representation. In addition, the data need to be managed such that it facilitates efficient searching, browsing and cooperative work. This area has been a very active research area in recent years. This book will provide readers with an up-to-date and comprehensive picture of cutting edge technologies in multimedia information retrieval and management, which directly affect our industry, economy and social life The book is divided into two major parts: Technological Fundamentals which covers the core theories of the area; and Applications which describes the broad range of practical uses for this technology.

The content of the book is good, but i feel there is some lack of information in current research topic in medical content based image retrieval. it is better to have some advanced retrieval algorithm in medical images. apart from that, the other information which will help the beginners more to learn about general content based image retrieval compare to other book.
do you have any specific book for medical CBIR? because i am doing my research work in medical cbir. i need some more information about it.
could you send one compliment hard copy to my address. i am working as an assistant professor in Thiagarajar College of Engg, Madurai.. many research work is going on in this field. so your compliment copy will help us to order many copies..
Thank you
