SIGNAL PROCESSING IN MEDICAL IMAGING AND IMAGE-GUIDED INTERVENTION
Presented by: Milan Sonka, Author(s): Milan Sonka, The University of Iowa, United States
This is an introduction to a special session of ICASSP devoted to signal processing techniques in medical imaging and image analysis that consists of this introduction and 5 research presentations, each addressing one aspect of the medical imaging field in which signal processing plays an irreplaceable role. The topics cover a broad spectrum of medical imaging problems from image acquisition to image analysis to population-based anatomical modeling. The focus is on technical aspects of the problem and proposed/developed solutions with sufficient emphasis given to the introducing the biomedical importance of the problem as well as its signal processing relevance.
