Ultrasonic Elastography and Breast Imaging -- Review on Segmentation of Computer-Aided Skeletal Maturity Assessment -- Review on Advanced Techniques in 2-D Fetal Echocardiography- An Image Processing Perspective -- Texture-Based Statistical Detection and Discrimination of some Respiratory Diseases using Chest Radiography -- Imaging of Mitochondrial Disorders: A Review -- A Novel Hybrid Magnetoacoustic Measurement Method for Breast Cancer Detection -- Sequential Process of Emotional Information from Facial Expressions: Simple Event Related Potential (ERP) for the Study of Brain Activities.
This book provides the most recent findings and knowledge in advanced diagnostics technology, covering a wide spectrum including brain activity analysis, breast and lung cancer detection, echocardiography, computer aided skeletal assessment to mitochondrial biology imaging at the cellular level. The authors explored magneto acoustic approaches and tissue elasticity imaging for the purpose of breast cancer detection. Perspectives in fetal echocardiography from an image processing angle are included. Diagnostic imaging in the field of mitochondrial diseases as well as the use of Computer-Aided System (CAD) are also discussed in the book. This book will be useful for students, lecturers or professional researchers in the field of biomedical sciences and image processing.
