Image Processing

Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNIP,volume 11111)


In the previous section, we have described common signal processing methods that may be applied to any kind of signal. In this chapter, we will adopt these concepts to the domain of image processing as it is commonly performed in medical imaging devices.
