Medical Imaging Informatics provides an overview of this growing discipline, which stems from an intersection of biomedical informatics, medical imaging, computer science and medicine. Supporting two complementary views, this volume explores the fundamental technologies and algorithms that comprise this field, as well as the application of medical imaging informatics to subsequently improve healthcare research. Clearly written in a four part structure, this introduction follows natural healthcare processes, illustrating the roles of data collection and standardization, context extraction and modeling, and medical decision making tools and applications. Medical Imaging Informatics identifies core concepts within the field, explores research challenges that drive development, and includes current state-of-the-art methods and strategies.

"The contributions of this publication follow mainly five main topics: Medical Imaging on the Grid; Ethical, Legal and Privacy Issues on HealthGrids; Bioinformatics on the Grid; Knowledge Discovery on HealthGrids; and Medical Assessment and HealthGrid Applications. 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

Attention SIIM Members: a special discount is available to you; please log in to the SIIM website at www.siim.org/pii or call the SIIM office at 703-723-0432 for information on how you can receive the SIIM member price. Imaging Informatics Professionals (IIPs) have come to play an indispensable role in modern medicine, and the scope of this profession has grown far beyond the boundaries of the PACS. A successful IIP must not only understand the PACS itself, but also have knowledge of clinical workflow, a base in several medical specialties, and a solid IT capability regarding software interactions and networking. With the introduction of a certification test for the IIP position, a single source was needed to explain the fundamentals of imaging informatics and to demonstrate how those fundamentals are applied in everyday practice. Practical Imaging Informatics describes the foundations of information technology and clinical image management, details typical daily operations, and discusses rarer complications and issues.

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

First envisioned by members of the radiology community, Picture Archiving and Communication Systems (PACS) have developed to affect the entire spectrum of health care delivery. Enabled by recent advances in information technology, the PACS concept of an integrated system has progressed rapidly and proven greater than the sum of its parts. No longer does discussion center on "if." purchase justification has given way to the "how" of best practices for installing and maintaining a PACS, and best uses for clinical service, research, and education. PACS and Imaging Informatics: Basic Principles and Applications addresses all the latest developments in this exciting field, from the electronic patient record with image distribution to the full range of topics in digital imaging. Written in clear, nontechnical language, this text features coverage of: Web-based PACS Fault-tolerant image archive servers Security Industrial standards Integrating the healthcare enterprise Clinical management systems Light imaging Digital radiography Teleconsultation PACS-based imaging informatics PACS and Imaging Informatics uses the framework of imaging informatics to explain PACS, making the text accessible to those without advanced knowledge of physics, engineering, math, or information technology. With the most systematic and thorough coverage of practical applications available, this text is the complete guide for all those involved in designing, implementing, and using PACS.

This is the first book to cover all aspects of the development of imaging biomarkers and their integration into clinical practice, from the conceptual basis through to the technical aspects that need to be considered in order to ensure that medical imaging can serve as a powerful quantification instrument capable of providing valuable information on organ and tissue properties. The process of imaging biomarker development is considered step by step, covering proof of concept, proof of mechanism, image acquisition, image preparation, imaging biomarker analysis and measurement, detection of measurement biases (proof of principle), proof of efficacy and effectiveness, and reporting of results. Sources of uncertainty in the accuracy and precision of measurements and pearls and pitfalls in gold standards and biological correlation are discussed. In addition, practical use cases are included on imaging biomarker implementation in brain, oncologic, cardiovascular, musculoskeletal, and abdominal diseases. The authors are a multidisciplinary team of expert radiologists and engineers, and the book will be of value to all with an interest in the quantitative imaging of biomarkers in personalized medicine.
