Download Alternative breast imaging : four model-based approaches by Keith D. Paulsen, Paul M. Meaney, Larry Gilman PDF

By Keith D. Paulsen, Paul M. Meaney, Larry Gilman

Medical imaging has been reworked over the last 30 years by means of the appearance of automatic tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and diverse advances in x-ray and ultrasonic strategies. An permitting strength in the back of this growth has been the (so a long way) exponentially expanding energy of desktops, which has made it useful to discover essentially new ways. specifically, what our team phrases "model-based" modalities-which produce tissue estate pictures from info utilizing nonlinear, iterative numerical modeling techniques-have develop into more and more feasible.

Alternative Breast Imaging: 4 Model-Based Approaches explores our learn on 4 such modalities, fairly with reference to imaging of the breast: (1) MR elastography (MRE), (2) electric impedance spectroscopy (EIS), (3) microwave imaging spectroscopy (MIS), and (4) close to infrared spectroscopic imaging (NIS). bankruptcy 1 introduces the current country of breast imaging and discusses how our replacement modalities can give a contribution to the sector. bankruptcy 2 appears to be like on the computational universal flooring shared by way of all 4 modalities. Chapters 2 via 10 are dedicated to the 4 modalities, with every one modality being mentioned first in a concept bankruptcy after which in an implementation-and-results bankruptcy. The 11th and ultimate bankruptcy discusses statistical equipment for snapshot research within the context of those 4 substitute imaging modalities.

Imaging for the detection of breast melanoma is a very fascinating and correct software of the 4 imaging modalities mentioned during this ebook. Breast melanoma is an exceptionally universal ailment for girls; the nationwide melanoma Institute estimates that one in 8 US girls will improve breast melanoma at least one time in her lifetime. but the efficacy of the traditional (and notoriously uncomfortable) early-detection try out, the x-ray mammogram, has been disputed of overdue, particularly for young women. stipulations are therefore ripe for the advance of reasonable recommendations that change or supplement mammography. The breast is either anatomically obtainable and sufficiently small that the computing strength required to version it, is affordable.

D. 1 INTRODUCTION All of the imaging modalities discussed in this book require unique numerical algorithms and data acquisition hardware. However, they also share a good deal of algorithmic common ground. The Dartmouth Breast Imaging Group has therefore articulated a shared numerical-analysis framework for these modalities. This framework facilitates communication between teams working on different modalities while being flexible enough to allow for needful variations, especially as dictated by the data-acquisition requirements of each modality.
