Digital Image Processing in Medicine
Many medical diagnostic methods depend upon the examination of images related to possible pathological processes going on in the patient. Examples are ordinary X-rays, fluoroscopic angiography, microscopic histological sections, computerised tomographs, electro-encephalographic recordings, ocular motor-reflex patterns. Automatic computer methods can be used to assist in the evaluation of such images by applying one or more of the following procedures: recording, displaying in a controllable manner and enhancing the images, automatically extracting information from them.
