Principles of Signal Analysis with Applications to Medical Imaging

  • K. PrestonJr.

Abstract

In the accompanying chapter by Horton, Herron and Kerber and in that by Ayers and Huang the reader has been exposed to two of the first applications of signal analysis to computerized tomography (CT) image processing. The goal in both cases is to generate a quantitative analysis of tissue structure and/or tissue pathology. This is particularly appropriate in CT because of the fact that the image exists in computer memory as a number array which can be analyzed readily by the same computer which generated the image.
