Medical Image Processing: Concepts and Applications presents an overview of image processing for various applications in the field of medical science. Inclusion of several topics like noise reduction filters, feature extraction, image restoration, segmentation, soft computing techniques and context-based medical image retrieval, etc. makes this book a single-source information meeting the requirements of the readers. Besides, the coverage of digital image processing, human visual perception and CAD system to be used in automated diagnosis system, medical imaging modalities, various application areas of medical field, detection and classification of various disease, etc. is highly emphasised in the book.

The book, divided into eight chapters, presents the topics in a clear, simple, practical and cogent fashion that provides the students with the insight into theory as well as applications to the practical problems. The research orientation of the book greatly supports the concepts of image processing to be applied for segmentation, classification and detection of affected areas in X-ray, MRI and mammographic and all other medical images. Throughout the book, an attempt has been made to address the challenges faced by radiologists, physicians and doctors in scanning, interpretation and diagnosis process. The book uses an abundance of colour images to impart a high level of comprehension of concepts and helps in mastering the process of medical image processing. Special attention is made on the review of algorithms or methods of medical image formation, processing and analysis, medical imaging applications, and emerging medical imaging modality.

This is purely a text dedicated for the undergraduate and postgraduate students of biomedical engineering. The book is also of immense use to the students of computer science engineering and IT who offer a course on digital image processing.


Key Points


•   Chapter-end review questions test the students’ knowledge of the funda-mental concepts.
•   Course outcomes help the students in capturing the key points.
•   Several images and information regarding morphological operations given in appendices help in getting additional knowledge in the field of medical image processing.

This unique, comprehensive and student-friendly book, now in its second edition, continues to hold the purpose of explaining and illustrating the use of the basic theorems in functional analysis through solved numerical problems. The text has been revised on the basis of the readers’ feedback. The book now covers ample worked-out numerical problems related to the spectral properties of compact operators on Banach spaces as well as on Hilbert spaces. Inclusion of a few problems based on the square root of a positive operator also contributes to the major highlights of this edition. Such a practical approach will greatly facilitate students to have a thorough grasp of the subject. This stands in stark contrast to the method followed in most of the books where a great amount of theory is given with a smattering of problems to elucidate the topics discussed.

Intended as a text for the students pursuing postgraduate courses in mathematics, this book with its systematic and precise presentation and provision of a large number of exercises should prove to be a trendsetter in its approach to the subject. This novelty of approach appeals the students in particular.
