Biomedical Image Understanding: Methods and Applications.pdf
With contributions from experts in China, France, Italy, Japan, Singapore, the United Kingdom, and the United States, Biomedical Image Understanding: addresses motion tracking and knowledge-based systems, two areas which are not covered extensively elsewhere in a biomedical context; describes important clinical applications, such as virtual colonoscopy, ocular disease diagnosis, and liver tumor detection; and contains twelve self-contained chapters, each with an introduction to basic concepts, principles, and methods, and a case study or application.
Joo-Hwee Lim is the Head of the Visual Computing Department at the Institute for Infocomm Research (I 2 R), ASTAR, Singapore, and an Adjunct Associate Professor at the School of Computer Engineering, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. He is the co-Director of IPAL (Image & Pervasive Access Laboratory), a French-Singapore Joint Lab. He established the medical image analysis group at I 2 R in 2006, collaborating with clinicians closely, resulting in strong competency in ocular imaging, brain image analysis, cell image understanding etc at the institute. He has published over 200 journal and conference papers and owns 17 patents in the areas of computer vision, cognitive vision, pattern recognition, and medical image analysis.
