About this book

Introduction

Terahertz Imaging for Biomedical Applications: Pattern Recognition and Tomographic Reconstruction presents the necessary algorithms needed to assist screening, diagnosis, and treatment, and these algorithms will play a critical role in the accurate detection of abnormalities present in biomedical imaging. Terahertz biomedical imaging has become an area of interest due to its ability to simultaneously acquire both image and spectral information. Terahertz imaging systems are being commercialized with an increasing number of trials performed in a biomedical setting. Terahertz tomographic imaging and detection technology contributes to the ability to identify opaque objects with clear boundaries,and would be useful to both in vivo and ex vivo environments. This book also:

  • Introduces terahertz radiation techniques and provides a number of topical examples of signal and image processing, as well as machine learning
  • Presents the most recent developments in an emerging field, terahertz radiation
  • Utilizes new methods of digital imaging that would be useful in medical screening, diagnosis, and treatment

Terahertz Imaging for Biomedical Applications: Pattern Recognition and Tomographic Reconstruction is a must-read for anyone in the field of biomedical engineering and digital imaging.
