This book describes medical imaging systems, such as X-ray, Computed tomography, MRI, etc. from the point of view of digital signal processing. Readers will see techniques applied to medical imaging such as Radon transformation, image reconstruction, image rendering, image enhancement and restoration, and more.
This book also outlines the physics behind medical imaging required to understand the techniques being described. The presentation is designed to be accessible to beginners who are doing research in DSP for medical imaging. Matlab programs and illustrations are used wherever possible to reinforce the concepts being discussed.
Digital signal processing (DSP) techniques, like Radon transformation, Projection
techniques, Fourier transformation in polar form, Hankel transformation, etc., are
used in Medical imaging techniques like Computed Tomography (CT) and
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) during the process of imaging. These are not
usually covered in the regular DSP and Image processing books. This book is
written with the intention to focus the DSP aspects used during the process of
imaging in CT and MRI. Also, DSP aspects used in the post imaging techniques
such as Image enhancement, Image compression and pattern recognition are also
discussed in this book. The Matlab illustrations are given for better understanding.
This book is suitable for beginners who are doing research in Medical imaging
