Computer applications for image processing in radiological imaging have matured
over the past decade and are now considered an indispensable tool for extracting maximal
information from the enormous amount of data obtained with the new cross-sectional
techniques such as ultrasound, computed tomography and magnetic resonance
imaging. Indeed, the exquisite display of anatomy and pathology in all possible planes
provided by these methods offers new and specifi c diagnostic information which will
contribute to a better therapeutic management of the patient.
This volume not only covers very comprehensively the fundamental technical aspects
of modern imaging processing, including the latest advances in this rapidly evolving
fi eld, but it also deals systematically and in depth with the numerous clinical applications
in those specifi c body areas where these methods can be successfully applied.
Special chapters are devoted to 3D image fusion and to image-guided robotic surgery.
The well readable text is completed by numerous superb illustrations.
The editors, all from the department of diagnostic and interventional radiology of
the University of Pisa, are internationally well known experts in the fi eld and all share
longstanding dedication and interest in radiological image processing, as demonstrated
by their innovative research and publications. Other leading international experts have
contributed outstanding individual chapters based on their specifi c expertise.
I would like to thank and congratulate most sincerely the editors and authors for
their superb efforts which have resulted in this much needed and excellent book which
will be of great assistance to all radiologists in their daily clinical work, as well as to
surgeons and other medical specialists interested in enlarging their knowledge in this
wonderful world of radiological computer processing.
I am confi dent that it will meet with the same success among readers as the previous
volumes published in this series.
