The maturity of the discipline of HealthGrids is clearly reflected on these subjects. There are more contributions related to two main application areas (Medical Imaging and Bioinformatics), confirming the analysis of the HealthGrid White Paper published last year, which outlined them as the two more promising areas for HealthGrids. Along with these two areas, the assessment on the results of HealthGrid applications, also focused by several contributions, denotes also the maturity of HealthGrids. Finally the other two areas (Knowledge Discovery and Ethical, Legal and Privacy Issues) focus on basic technologies which are very relevant for HealthGrids."

Improve the Accurate Detection and Diagnosis of Cancer and Other Diseases Despite the expansion of the CAD field in recent decades, there is currently no single book dedicated to the development and use of CAD systems. Filling this need, Computer-Aided Detection and Diagnosis in Medical Imaging covers the major technical advances and methodologies shaping the development and clinical utility of CAD systems in breast imaging, chest imaging, abdominal imaging, and other emerging applications. After a historical overview of CAD, the book is divided into four sections. The first section presents CAD technologies in breast imaging, which is the most advanced area of CAD application. The second section discusses CAD technologies in chest and abdominal imaging. The third section explores emerging CAD technologies in a wide range of imaging modalities designed to address a variety of diseases. The final section describes the current use of CAD systems in clinical practice as well as how CAD will play an important role in quantitative image biomarkers and imaging genomics research. This book brings together existing and emerging CAD approaches at a level understandable to students, CAD system developers, basic scientists, and physician scientists. Newcomers to CAD research will learn about fundamental aspects in the process of CAD system development. Developers of CAD systems will gain insight on designing new or improved CAD systems. Experienced researchers will get up-to-date information on the latest CAD technologies.

Hardbound. Over the last decade or so, many investigators have carried out basic studies and clinical applications toward the development of modern computerized schemes for detection and characterization of lesions in radiologic images, based on computer vision and artificial intelligence. These methods and techniques are generally called computer-aided diagnosis (CAD) schemes. The development of CAD has now reached a new phase, since the first commercial unit of detection of breast lesion in mammograms was approved in June 1998 by the FDA for marketing and sale for clinical use.This book, Computer-Aided Diagnosis in Medical Imaging, presents papers from the First International Workshop on Computer-Aided Diagnosis held on September, 1998 at the University of Chicago Downtown Center. The meeting provided a forum for leading researchers and practitioners in this rapidly expanding field, encompassing automated image analysis, quantitation of im

Hardbound. Over the centuries, the macroscopic view of the human being has been enhanced with an anatomical and functional degree of detail, such that no physician can no longer memorise this wealth of information. With modern imaging tools, the information which may be obtained from a particular patient will move further from the macroscopic to the microscopic detail. This information will neither be imprinted on film or paper nor stored in the PC, but will, rather, reside on the network. Intelligent processing and management of this imaging information contributes to new possibilities for computer assisted diagnosis and therapy.CARS 2000 focuses on these computer and communication tools. Radiologists, surgeons, computer scientists and engineers from over 40 countries are actively supporting these aims of CARS. This demonstrates that advancing patient care is best served by international and interdisciplinary cooperation, and this publicatio
