    An integrated, comprehensive survey of biomedical imaging modalities An important component of the recent expansion in bioengineering is the area of biomedical imaging. This book provides in-depth coverage of the field of biomedical imaging, with particular attention to an engineering viewpoint. Suitable as both a professional reference and as a text for a one-semester course for biomedical engineers or medical technology students, Introduction to Biomedical Imaging covers the fundamentals and applications of four primary medical imaging techniques: magnetic resonance imaging, ultrasound, nuclear medicine, and X-ray/computed tomography. Taking an accessible approach that includes any necessary mathematics and transform methods, this book provides rigorous discussions of: The physical principles, instrumental design, data acquisition strategies, image reconstruction techniques, and clinical applications of each modality Recent developments such as multi-slice spiral computed tomography, harmonic and sub-harmonic ultrasonic imaging, multi-slice PET scanning, and functional magnetic resonance imaging General image characteristics such as spatial resolution and signal-to-noise, common to all of the imaging modalities

  • ActiGait??: A Partly Implantable Drop-Foot Stimulator System

    ActiGait is a four-channel partly implantable neuroprosthesis to control ankle dorsiflexion during the swing phase of gait. It was the goal of the developers to make a device that was easily handled by users with various levels of disabilities. To ensure optimal application of the ActiGait during market introduction, additional monitoring tools were applied and developed such as preoperative and postoperative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), intraoperative fluoroscopy, and surface recordings of artifacts generated by the electrical stimulation of the nerve. By employing close monitoring during the establishment of new ActiGait clinical centers, ActiGait has been shown to be well accepted by users in several European countries. Experiences with the ActiGait have shown that thorough and targeted knowledge transfer to new clinical ActiGait centers, application of suitable monitoring tools, and close monitoring are all decisive in bringing a medical device such as an implantable drop-foot stimulator system successfully on the market.

    The field of brain imaging is developing at a rapid pace and has greatly advanced the areas of cognitive and clinical neuroscience. The availability of neuroimaging techniques, especially magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), functional MRI (fMRI), diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) and magnetoencephalography (MEG) and magnetic source imaging (MSI) has brought about breakthroughs in neuroscience. To obtain comprehensive information about the activity of the human brain, different analytical approaches should be complemented. Thus, in "intermodal multimodality" imaging, great efforts have been made to combine the highest spatial resolution (MRI, fMRI) with the best temporal resolution (MEG or EEG). "Intramodal multimodality" imaging combines various functional MRI techniques (e.g., fMRI, DTI, and/or morphometric/volumetric analysis). The multimodal approach is conceptually based on the combination of different noninvasive functional neuroimaging tools, their registration and cointegration. In articular, the combination of imaging applications that map different functional systems is useful, such as fMRI as a technique for the localization of cortical function and DTI as a technique for mapping of white matter fiber bundles or tracts. This booklet gives an insight into the wide field of multimodal imaging with respect to concepts, data acquisition, and postprocessing. Examples for intermodal and intramodal multimodality imaging are also demonstrated.

    Crucial to understanding how the brain works is connectivity, and the centerpiece of brain connectivity is the connectome, a comprehensive description of how neurons and brain regions are connected. The human brain is a network of extraordinary complexity--a network not by way of metaphor, but in a precise and mathematical sense: an intricate web of billions of neurons connected by trillions of synapses. How this network is connected is important for virtually all facets of the brain's integrative function. In this book, Olaf Sporns surveys current efforts to chart these connections--to map the human connectome. Sporns, a pioneer in the field who was the first to define and use the term "connectome," argues that the nascent field of connectomics has already begun to influence the way many neuroscientists collect, analyze, and think about their data. Moreover, the idea of mapping the connections of the human brain in their entirety has captured the imaginations of researchers across several disciplines including human cognition, brain and mental disorders, and complex systems and networks. Sporns describes the biological and conceptual foundations of the connectome; the many research challenges it faces; the many cutting-edge empirical strategies, from electron microscopy to magnetic resonance imaging, deployed to map brain connectivity; the relationship between structure and function; and the wide array of network computational approaches to connectomics. Discovering the Human Connectome offers the first comprehensive overview of current empirical and computational approaches in this rapidly developing field.

  • Segmentation of Brain Magnetic Resonance Images

    This chapter presents the application of different rough-fuzzy clustering algorithms for segmentation of brain magnetic resonance (MR) images. One of the important issues of the partitive-clustering-algorithm-based brain MR image segmentation method is the selection of initial prototypes of different classes or categories. The concept of discriminant analysis, based on the maximization of class separability, is used to circumvent the initialization and local minima problems of the partitive clustering algorithms. The chapter first deals with the pixel classification problem, and then gives an overview of the feature extraction techniques employed in segmentation of brain MR images, along with the initialization method of c-means algorithm based on the maximization of class separability. It presents implementation details, experimental results, and a comparison among different c-means algorithms. The algorithms compared are hard c-means (HCM), fuzzy c-means (FCM), possibilistic c-means (PCM), FPCM, rough c-means (RCM), and rough-fuzzy c-means (RFCM). fuzzy set theory; image classification; image segmentation; magnetic resonance imaging; pattern clustering; rough set theory

    In 1971 Dr. Paul C. Lauterbur pioneered spatial information encoding principles that made image formation possible by using magnetic resonance signals. Now Lauterbur, "father of the MRI", and Dr. Zhi-Pei Liang have co- authored the first engineering textbook on magnetic resonance imaging. This long-awaited, definitive text will help undergraduate and graduate students of biomedical engineering, biomedical imaging scientists, radiologists, and electrical engineers gain an in-depth understanding of MRI principles. The authors use a signal processing approach to describe the fundamentals of magnetic resonance imaging. You will find a clear and rigorous discussion of these carefully selected essential topics: Mathematical fundamentals Signal generation and detection principles Signal characteristics Signal localization principles Image reconstruction techniques Image contrast mechanisms Image resolution, noise, and artifacts Fast-scan imaging Constrained reconstruction Complete with a comprehensive set of examples and homework problems, Principles of Magnetic Resonance Imaging is the must-read book to improve your knowledge of this revolutionary technique.
