Free Preview
    • Presents different approaches on multi-modality imaging including functional (related to physiological body measurements) and anatomical (structural) imaging modalities
    • Broadens readers’ understanding of medical applications for both invasive (e.g. CT, X-ray diffraction and Tomosynthesis) and non-invasive imaging modalities (e.g. infrared thermography (IRT), photoplethysmography imaging (PPGI), and MRI)
    • Covers in detail 3D image modelling for a variety of applications, including some computational approaches, such as out-of-core volume rendering of massive high resolution data and visualization of 3D models for surgery planning and training applications

About this book

This book presents different approaches on multi-modality imaging with a focus on biomedical applications. Medical imaging can be divided into two categories: functional (related to physiological body measurements) and anatomical (structural) imaging modalities.

In particular, this book covers imaging combinations coming from the usual popular modalities (such as the anatomical modalities, e.g. X-ray, CT and MRI), and it also includes some promising and new imaging modalities that are still being developed and improved (such as infrared thermography (IRT) and photoplethysmography imaging (PPGI)), implying potential approaches for innovative biomedical applications.

Moreover, this book includes a variety of tools on computer vision, imaging processing, and computer graphics, which led to the generation and visualization of 3D models, making the most recent advances in this area possible. This is an ideal book for students and biomedical engineering researchers covering the biomedical imaging field.

About the authors

Mauren Abreu de Souza is affiliated with the Pontifical Catholic University of Paraná (PUCPR), in Curitiba, Brazil. She received her Ph.D. degree in Medical Physics and Bioengineering from University College London (2009), UK. She received her M.Sc. in Electrical Engineering (emphasis: Biomedical Engineering) from the Federal University of Technology – Paraná (UTFPR), (2002), Brazil. She has a degree in Physics (B.Sc together with physics’ teaching) from the Federal University of Paraná – UFPR (1999), in Curitiba, Brazil. Her research interests include 3D multimodality imaging, 3D image reconstruction, computed tomography (CT) images, rapid prototyping, optical tomography, infrared thermal images, and 3D modelling (e.g. photogrammetry and 3D scanning systems).
