Young readers today can hardly go a day without encountering a computerized device. At school, in stores, even in our own pockets-computers are everywhere! With this in-depth biography of female tech pioneer Grace Murray Hopper, a new generation can learn about this trailblazing computer scientist who contributed so much to computer technology. The span of Hopper's life is covered, including her upbringing and formal education. Her triumph of joining the U.S. Navy at a time when women weren't welcomed in the armed forces inspires, as do her continued advances in computer sciences after retirement from the navy.

The 1991 International Conference on Information Processing in Medical Imaging (IPMI '91) is the twelfth in the series and was held in Wye College, part of the University of London. The purpose of IPMI is to provide a forum for the detailed examination of methodological issues in computing which are at the heart of advances in medical image formation, manipulation and interpretation. This volume presents the proceedings of IPMI '91. Full-length scientific papers describing the latest techniques and results are organized into the following nine sections: - Image formation and reconstruction - Incorporation of priors in tomographic reconstruction - Multi-modal registration - Segmentation: specific applications - Segmentation: multi-scale, surfaces and topology - Anatomical models and variability - Factor analysis - Rule based systems and learning - Image quality, display and interaction. The volume also includes a set of color plates and a subject index. The book provides an up-to-date account of current work in the expanding and fast-moving area of image processing and medical imaging, and gives an overview of work at all the key centers researching in this area. It will prove an invaluable asset to all researchers working in the area and to the libraries of organizations involved in imaging research.
