Denis Le Bihan, Mami Iima, Christian Federau, Eric E. Sigmund
R3,599 Discovery Miles 35 990 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Intravoxel incoherent motion (IVIM) refers to translational movements which within a given voxel and during the measurement time present a distribution of speeds in orientation and/or amplitude. The concept was introduced in 1986 together with the foundation of diffusion MRI because it had been realized that flow of blood in capillaries (perfusion) would mimic a diffusion process and impact diffusion MRI measurements. IVIM-based perfusion MRI, which does not require injection of any tracer or contrast agent, has been first investigated in the brain, but is now experiencing a remarkable revival for applications throughout the body, especially for oncologic applications, from diagnosis to treatment monitoring. This book addresses a number of highly topical aspects of the field from leading authorities, introducing the concepts behind IVIM MRI, outlining related methodological issues, and summarizing its current usage and potential for clinical applications. It also presents future research directions, both in terms of methodological development and clinical application fields, extending to new, non-perfusion applications of IVIM MRI, such as virtual MR elastography.

Detection and characterization of bone tumors with imaging remains a big challenge for every radiologist notwithstanding the impressive progress achieved by the introduction of several new imaging modalities. Moreover, new concepts in surgical and oncological treatment of these lesions require from the radiologist appropriate and focused answers to the specifc questions asked by the referring physicians in order to choose the best therapeutic approach for the in- vidual patient. Tis comprehensive textbook describes in detail the possibilities and limits of all moda- ties, including MRI, CT, nuclear medicine and interventional radiological procedures, employed for the modern imaging of tumoral and tumor-like lesions of bone. Teir role in the diagnosis, surgical staging, biopsy and assessment of response to therapy is discussed in detail, covering all tumor subtypes as well as their specifc anatomical location.Well selected and technically imp- cable illustrations strongly enhance the didactic value of this work. I am very much indebted and grateful to the three editors: A. Mark Davies, Murali Sundaram and Steven L. J. James, world authorities in musculoskeletal radiology, for their superb scientifc achievement in preparing and editing this wonderful volume as well as for their individual ch- ters. I would also like to thank the large international group of collaborating authors, who are also widely acknowledged for their specifc expertise in the area of bone tumors, for their outstanding contributions.

The sequel to the popular lecture book entitled Biomedical Image Analysis: Tracking, this book on Biomedical Image Analysis: Segmentation tackles the challenging task of segmenting biological and medical images. The problem of partitioning multidimensional biomedical data into meaningful regions is perhaps the main roadblock in the automation of biomedical image analysis. Whether the modality of choice is MRI, PET, ultrasound, SPECT, CT, or one of a myriad of microscopy platforms, image segmentation is a vital step in analyzing the constituent biological or medical targets. This book provides a state-of-the-art, comprehensive look at biomedical image segmentation that is accessible to well-equipped undergraduates, graduate students, and research professionals in the biology, biomedical, medical, and engineering fields. Active model methods that have emerged in the last few years are a focus of the book, including parametric active contour and active surface models, active shape models, and geometric active contours that adapt to the image topology. Additionally, Biomedical Image Analysis: Segmentation details attractive new methods that use graph theory in segmentation of biomedical imagery. Finally, the use of exciting new scale space tools in biomedical image analysis is reported.

In biological and medical imaging applications, tracking objects in motion is a critical task. This book describes the state-of-the-art in biomedical tracking techniques. We begin by detailing methods for tracking using active contours, which have been highly successful in biomedical applications. The book next covers the major probabilistic methods for tracking. Starting with the basic Bayesian model, we describe the Kalman filter and conventional tracking methods that use centroid and correlation measurements for target detection. Innovations such as the extended Kalman filter and the interacting multiple model open the door to capturing complex biological objects in motion. A salient highlight of the book is the introduction of the recently emerged particle filter, which promises to solve tracking problems that were previously intractable by conventional means. Another unique feature of Biomedical Image Analysis: Tracking is the explanation of shape-based methods for biomedical image analysis. Methods for both rigid and nonrigid objects are depicted. Each chapter in the book puts forth biomedical case studies that illustrate the methods in action. In biological and medical imaging applications, tracking objects in motion is a critical task.
