Magnetic Particle Imaging: A Novel SPIO Nanoparticle Imaging Technique

 Radiology  Comments Off on Magnetic Particle Imaging: A Novel SPIO Nanoparticle Imaging Technique
Mar 162019
 

Magnetic Particle Imaging (MPI) is a novel imaging modality. In MPI superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles are used as tracer materials. The volume is the proceeding of the 2nd international workshop on magnetic particle imaging (IWMPI). The workshop aims at covering the status and recent developments of both, the instrumentation and the tracer material, as each of them is equally important in designing a well performing MPI. For instance, the current state of the art in magnetic coil design for MPI is discussed. With a new symmetrical arrangement of coils, a field-free line (FFL) can be produced that promises a significantly higher sensitivity compared with the standard arrangement for a FFP. Furthermore, the workshop aims at presenting results from phantom and pre-clinical studies.

Health Care Reform in Radiology

 Radiology  Comments Off on Health Care Reform in Radiology
Mar 132019
 

The first book-length treatment of the absolutely essential topic of U.S. health care reform for imaging specialists

This latest volume in the Current Clinical Imaging series offers all professionals involved with imaging a cogent, concise discussion of major issues related to health care reform from the perspective of fellow imaging specialists. It provides radiologists with a solid footing in understanding where they are now and where they can expect to be in the evolution of health care reform over the next ten years.

Presenting an excellent balance of clinical and health care policy issues, Health Care Reform in Radiology reinforces the central role of health promotion and preventive medicine in U.S. health care systems while offering an international perspective on the subject. Topical coverage includes evidence-based outcomes for health care delivery, the impact of the determination of imaging tests’ effectiveness, patient safety, medicolegal reform, reimbursement issues, and universal healthcare benefits and challenges.

Health Care Reform in Radiology presents a program to:

Enhance patient safety and quality of care
Anticipate new or revised standards for all imaging modalities
Suggest the more appropriate use of imaging based on the latest clinical evidence
Discuss the evolving regulations defining the training required to perform imaging procedures
Encourage career-long learning (CME, maintenance of certification, etc.)
Show fellow radiologists how to provide added value for patients and referring physicians

Developed and written by two top experts in the field, this is an ideal book for all professionals involved with imaging as well as physician groups that depend on radiology.

Image Structure

 Radiology  Comments Off on Image Structure
Mar 132019
 

Despite the fact that images constitute the main objects in computer vision and image analysis, there is remarkably little concern about their actual definition. In this book a complete account of image structure is proposed in terms of rigorously defined machine concepts, using basic tools from algebra, analysis, and differential geometry. Machine technicalities such as discretisation and quantisation details are de-emphasised, and robustness with respect to noise is manifest. From the foreword by Jan Koenderink: `It is my hope that the book will find a wide audience, including physicists – who still are largely unaware of the general importance and power of scale space theory, mathematicians – who will find in it a principled and formally tight exposition of a topic awaiting further development, and computer scientists – who will find here a unified and conceptually well founded framework for many apparently unrelated and largely historically motivated methods they already know and love. The book is suited for self-study and graduate courses, the carefully formulated exercises are designed to get to grips with the subject matter and prepare the reader for original research.’

Document Imaging: Computer Meets Press

 Radiology  Comments Off on Document Imaging: Computer Meets Press
Mar 132019
 

Document imaging is a new discipline in applied computer science. It is building bridges between computer graphics, the world of prepress and press, and the areas of color vision and color reproduction. The focus of this book is of special relevance to people learning how to utilize and integrate such available technology as digital printing or short run color, how to make use of CIM techniques for print products, and how to evaluate related technologies that will become relevant in the next few years. This book is the first to give a comprehensive overview of document imaging, the areas involved, and how they relate. For readers with a background in computer graphics it gives insight into all problems related to putting information in print, a field only very thinly covered in textbooks on computer graphics.

Medical Image Databases

 Radiology  Comments Off on Medical Image Databases
Mar 132019
 

Medical Image Databases covers the new technologies of biomedical imaging databases and their applications in clinical services, education, and research. Authors were selected because they are doing cutting-edge basic or technology work in relevant areas. This was done to infuse each chapter with ideas from people actively investigating and developing medical image databases rather than simply review the existing literature. The authors have analyzed the literature and have expanded on their own research. They have also addressed several common threads within their generic topics. These include system architecture, standards, information retrieval, data modeling, image visualizations, query languages, telematics, data mining, and decision supports. The new ideas and results reported in this volume suggest new and better ways to develop imaging databases and possibly lead us to the next information infrastructure in biomedicine. Medical Image Databases is suitable as a textbook for a graduate-level course on biomedical imaging or medical image databases, and as a reference for researchers and practitioners in industry.
