In this book, the field of adaptive learning and processing is extended to arguably one of its most important contexts which is the understanding and analysis of brain signals. No attempt is made to comment on physiological aspects of brain activity; instead, signal processing methods are developed and used to assist clinical findings. Recent developments in detection, estimation and separation of diagnostic cues from different modality neuroimaging systems are discussed.
These include constrained nonlinear signal processing techniques which incorporate sparsity, nonstationarity, multimodal data, and multiway techniques.
Key features: Covers advanced and adaptive signal processing techniques for the processing of electroencephalography (EEG) and magneto-encephalography (MEG) signals, and their correlation to the corresponding functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI)Provides advanced tools for the detection, monitoring, separation, localising and understanding of functional, anatomical, and physiological abnormalities of the brainPuts a major emphasis on brain dynamics and how this can be evaluated for the assessment of brain activity in various states such as for brain-computer interfacing emotions and mental fatigue analysisFocuses on multimodal and multiway adaptive processing of brain signals, the new direction of brain signal research

Image processing is a hands-on discipline, and the best way to learn is by doing. This text takes its motivation from medical applications and uses real medical images and situations to illustrate and clarify concepts and to build intuition, insight and understanding. Designed for advanced undergraduates and graduate students who will become end-users of digital image processing, it covers the basics of the major clinical imaging modalities, explaining how the images are produced and acquired. It then presents the standard image processing operations, focusing on practical issues and problem solving. Crucially, the book explains when and why particular operations are done, and practical computer-based activities show how these operations affect real images. All images, links to the public-domain software ImageJ and custom plug-ins, and selected solutions are available from www.cambridge.org/books/dougherty.

Retinal imaging techniques are used to diagnose and screen for various conditions such as macular degeneration and glaucoma. Equally importantly, they are used to monitor the progression of previously diagnosed conditions. In either case, the ability to interpret the results provided by the various techniques available to the clinician is of vital importance for the appropriate management of the underlying pathology. Multimodal Retinal Imaging provides a timely summary of the various state of the art retinal imaging techniques now available and enables the reader to interpret the findings they will encounter in the care of patients with retinal conditions. Section One TECHNIQUES, covers all the main modalities, such as Optical coherence tomography and Scanning Laser ophthalmoscopy and for each one: summarises the history and development of the technique in question explains relevant basic science (anatomy, physiology, etc) gives practical advice on using the technique in everyday practice (positioning of the patient, etc) provides a visual summary of the appearance of normal results highlights the appearance of the discrete abnormal signs that users of the technique should be aware of and alert to Section Two DISORDERS covers the important pathologies relevant to retinal imaging, such as Retinal vascular disorders, and for each disease group: provides a brief overview of the disorders in question, their shared features and differentiating factors describes and illustrates the presentation of each specific condition via different modalities, showing multiple variations of each specific condition so that the reader can become familiar with the range of appearances likely to be seen in practice.

Choose the right imaging for your patients. Rely on this compendium of evidence-based criteria to confidently select the most appropriate imaging modality for the diagnostic investigation of the most commonly evaluated musculoskeletal conditions. The Musculoskeletal Imaging Handbook simplifies the complex field of musculoskeletal imaging for the primary practitioner responsible for ordering imaging or for the clinician who wants to understand the role of imaging in their patient's care. Information on Radiographs, MRIs, CTs, and Diagnostic Ultrasound is condensed into easily understood bullet points, decision pathways, tables, and charts. The most valuable feature of this Handbook is the ability to see the entire spectrum of imaging available, and understand why one imaging modality is most appropriate at a given point in the diagnostic investigation. This Handbook includes all the evidence-based criteria currently available to guide a primary practitioner in the selection of the most appropriate imaging investigation for a given clinical condition: the American College of Radiology Appropriateness Criteria for Musculoskeletal Conditions, Western Australia's Diagnostic Imaging Pathways for Musculoskeletal Conditions, and the Ottawa, Pittsburgh, and Canadian Clinical Decision Rules for ankle, knee, and cervical spine trauma. It's the perfect companion to Lynn N. McKinnis' Fundamentals of Musculoskeletal Imaging, 4th Edition.

It focuses on common clinical scenarios and relevant findings to help students in their revision of radiology. It is also a practical book for pediatricians, postgraduate students and busy practitioners.
Over the last century the ECG has been used by clinicians to make major clinical decisions with regard to electric pacing, the use of thrombolytic drugs in acute myocardial infarction and the timing of surgery. In conjunction with a chest X-ray and the echocardiogram it is a fundamental part of the initial investigation of a patient with suspected heart disease. These electrical squiggles have always been difficult for students to understand. In part the problem has been that the formatting of the ECG has only become standard in the last two decades. Some important books have not provided the full twelve-lead ECG. On occasion the interpretation of the ECG has been related to complex explanations of the shapes of the electrical signals. For the practising physician much of the interpretation is a matter of pattern recognition.
