Release Date: April 28, 2014
The development of imaging techniques is of great importance for the monitoring of medical implants, diagnosis of disease, and strategies for personalized medicine. Significant advances are being made in this technology; editor Peter Morris has brought together a roster of contributing editors to discuss the latest advances and developments in this important field.
Chapters in part one explore the full scale of imaging technologies from Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) to Positron Emission Tomography (PET), as well as the Next Generation techniques that could provide the basis for personalized medicine. Part two highlights application specific biomedical imaging methods, including ophthalmic imaging of ocular circulation, imaging methods for detection of joint degeneration, neural brain activation imaging and the use of brain imaging to assess post therapy responses. Further chapters review intravascular, cardiovascular and whole body magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
