Image Processing and Analysis

A Practical Approach

Edited by Richard Baldock and Jim Graham

Practical Approach Series

This volume presents the subject of image processing and analysis to the point of view of the user. The standard algorithms, procedures and rules of thumb are explained in the context of successful application to biological or medical images and chapters cover image acquisition, processing, analysis and pattern recognition. This approach equips the user with the necessary background for informed use of image processing software, and the ability to write their own programs if need be. There are explanations of more advanced techniques, such as the reconstruction, mapping and warping of 3D images, and each has reference to specific applications. This is an extremely usable, practical guide for the beginning postgraduate biologist or medical researcher.
