Biomedical Engineering

SERIES EDITOR:
John Enderle, University of Connecticut
This series covers advanced and state-of-the-art topics that span the field of biomedical engineering, from the atom and molecule to large diagnostic equipment. Each lecture covers, for that topic, the fundamental principles in a unified manner, develops underlying concepts needed for sequential material, and progresses to more advanced topics. Computer software and multimedia, when appropriate and available, are included for simulation, computation, visualization and design. The authors selected to write the lectures are leading experts on the subject who have extensive background in theory, application and design. The series is designed to meet the demands of the 21st century technology and the rapid advancements in the all-encompassing field of biomedical engineering that includes biochemical processes, biomaterials, biomechanics, bioinstrumentation, physiological modeling, biosignal processing, bioinformatics, biocomplexity, medical and molecular imaging, rehabilitation engineering, biomimetic nano-electrokinetics, biosensors, biotechnology, clinical engineering, biomedical devices, drug discovery and delivery systems, tissue engineering, proteomics, functional genomics, and molecular and cellular engineering.

Content-based Retrieval of Medical Images Content-based Retrieval of Medical Images
Paulo Mazzoncini de Azevedo-Marques, Rangaraj Rangayyan
Content-based image retrieval (CBIR) is the process of retrieval of images from a database that are similar to a query image, using measures derived from the images themselves, rather than relying on accompanying text or annotation. To achieve CBIR, ...

Computer-Aided Detection of Architectural Distortion in Prior Mammograms of Interval Cancer Computer-Aided Detection of Architectural Distortion in Prior Mammograms of Interval Cancer
Shantanu Banik, Rangaraj Rangayyan, J.E. Leo Desautels
Architectural distortion is an important and early sign of breast cancer, but because of its subtlety, it is a common cause of false-negative findings on screening mammograms. Screening mammograms obtained prior to the detection of cancer could conta...
