About this book

New computerized approaches to various problems have become critically important in healthcare. Computer assisted diagnosis has been extended towards a support of the clinical treatment. Mathematical information analysis, computer applications together with medical equipment and instruments have become standard tools underpinning the current rapid progress with developing Computational Intelligence. We are witnessing a radical change as technologies have been integrated into systems that address the core of medicine, including patient care in ambulatory and in-patient setting, disease prevention, health promotion, rehabilitation and home care. Computer aided diagnosis and treatment systems increase the objectivity of the analysis and speed up the response to pathological changes.

This book presents a variety of state-of-the-art information technology and its applications to the networked environment to allow robust computerized approaches to be introduced throughout the healthcare enterprise. Patient's safety and shortening of the rehabilitation time requires a more rapid development of minimally invasive surgery supported by image navigation techniques. Home care, remote rehabilitation assistance, safety of the elderly requires new areas to be explored in telemedicine and telegeriatrics.

This book is a great reference tool for scientists who deal with problems of designing and implementing processing tools employed in systems that assist clinicians in patient diagnosis and treatment. 

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“The book highlights and discusses rapidly changing state-of-the-art information technologies in biomedicine. It is aimed primarily at scientists who design tools that help with clinical care, including diagnosis and treatment. Other medical professionals who are interested in upcoming technologies also may find the book useful. … This is a collection of well-chosen articles of interest to medical scientists interested in these areas. It provides a quick look at upcoming technologies in medicine and, thereby, the future of medical technology.” (Kamesh Sivagnanam, Doody’s Book Reviews, August, 2014)
