Design of Effective Radiological Effluent Monitoring and Environmental Surveillance Programs

 Radiology  Comments Off on Design of Effective Radiological Effluent Monitoring and Environmental Surveillance Programs
Dec 212018
 

This Report is intended to support the design and operation of integrated radiological effluent monitoring and environmental surveillance. Performing monitoring and surveillance as a combined program allows each element to contribute its own strengths, with a built-in system for checking the results of one with the results of the other. Radionuclides that are important contributors to radiation dose are often at relatively high concentration at points of release, where they can be monitored with ease and accuracy so that their concentrations at points of exposure can be estimated according to a computational model. Meanwhile, the surveillance program can detect these radionuclides near points of exposure or at least show them to be below concentrations of concern. These paired measurements also can ascertain whether the release and exposure points are suitably located and instrumented, and whether the transport calculations for these releases are credible. The Report emphasizes: – designing credible programs; – presenting tried and true methods; and – integrating technical and methodological developments.

Surface Imaging for Biomedical Applications

 Radiology  Comments Off on Surface Imaging for Biomedical Applications
Dec 142018
 

Based on hospital clinical trials examining the use of signal and image processing techniques, Surface Imaging for Biomedical Applications bridges the gap between engineers and clinicians. This text offers a thorough analysis of biomedical surface imaging to medical practitioners as it relates to the diagnosis, detection, and monitoring of skin conditions and disease.

Written from an engineer’s perspective, the book discusses image acquisition methods, image processing, and pattern recognition techniques. It focuses on a variety of techniques used in recent years for image processing and pattern recognition (principal component analysis, independent component analysis, singular value decomposition, texture modeling, inverse model analysis, polynomial surface fitting, and classification techniques), and considers interventional and non-invasive procedures used to diagnose skin-related disease.

It examines the biological causation of four skin disorders (psoriasis, vitiligo, ulcer, and acne), provides basic terminologies in surface imaging, and details the outcome of various clinical observations and other research. It also details numerous measurement parameters related to surface imaging (body surface, skin color, tissue characteristic, thickness, roughness, volume of skin, and retinal changes).

• Discusses the development of a psoriasis severity measurement tool
• Provides material on assessing segmented repigmentation areas in vitiligo patients via VT-Scan
• Introduces a volume ulcer assessment using non-invasive 3D imaging
• Presents an automated system for acne grading that is based on capturing the images of various body parts using the DSLR camera
• Includes the MATLAB® codes for various pattern recognition techniques applied during the assessment/measurement at the end of each chapter
This interdisciplinary reference highlights the importance of disease diagnosis and monitoring, and is suitable for medical practitioners, biomedical engineers, and core image processing researchers.

Since the first edition was published in 1993, the book has become the standard text for radiographers, technologists, radiology residents, radiologists and even sales representatives on the subject of magnetic resonance imaging. This text is essential reading on postgraduate courses. Furthermore MRI in Practice has come to be known as the number one reference book and study guide in the areas of MR instrumentation, principles, pulse sequences, image acquisition, and imaging parameters for the advanced level examination for MRI offered by the American Registry for Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) in the USA.The book explains in clear terms the theory that underpins magnetic resonance so that the capabilities and operation of MRI systems can be fully appreciated and maximized. This third edition captures recent advances, and coverage includes: parallel imaging techniques and new sequences such as balanced gradient echo.Building on the success of the first three editions, the fourth edition has been fully revised and updated. It also now has a companion website which hosts animated versions of a selection of illustrations in the book to aid with the reader’s comprehension of some of the more difficult concepts. The website also hosts over 200 interactive self-assessment exercises to help the reader test their understanding.
