Second International Workshop, GRAIL 2018 and First International Workshop, Beyond MIC 2018, Held in Conjunction with MICCAI 2018, Granada, Spain, September 20, 2018, Proceedings
Author: Danail Stoyanov
This book constitutes the refereed joint proceedings of the Second International Workshop on Graphs in Biomedical Image Analysis, GRAIL 2018 and the First International Workshop on Integrating Medical Imaging and Non-Imaging Modalities, Beyond MIC 2018, held in conjunction with the 21st International Conference on Medical Imaging and Computer-Assisted Intervention, MICCAI 2018, in Granada, Spain, in September 2018. The 6 full papers presented at GRAIL 2018 and the 5 full papers presented at BeYond MIC 2018 were carefully reviewed and selected. The GRAIL papers cover a wide range of develop graph-based models for the analysis of biomedical images and encourage the exploration of graph-based models for difficult clinical problems within a variety of biomedical imaging contexts. The Beyond MIC papers cover topics of novel methods with significant imaging and non-imaging components, addressing practical applications and new datasets
3D Imaging, Analysis and Applications brings together core topics, both in terms of well-established fundamental techniques and the most promising recent techniques in the exciting field of 3D imaging and analysis. Many similar techniques are being used in a variety of subject areas and applications and the authors attempt to unify a range of related ideas. With contributions from high profile researchers and practitioners, the material presented is informative and authoritative and represents mainstream work and opinions within the community. Composed of three sections, the first examines 3D imaging and shape representation, the second, 3D shape analysis and processing, and the last section covers 3D imaging applications. Although 3D Imaging, Analysis and Applications is primarily a graduate text, aimed at masters-level and doctoral-level research students, much material is accessible to final-year undergraduate students. It will also serve as a reference text for professional academics, people working in commercial research and development labs and industrial practitioners.
As a new interdisciplinary research area, “image-based geometric modeling and mesh generation” integrates image processing, geometric modeling and mesh generation with finite element method (FEM) to solve problems in computational biomedicine, materials sciences and engineering. It is well known that FEM is currently well-developed and efficient, but mesh generation for complex geometries (e.g., the human body) still takes about 80% of the total analysis time and is the major obstacle to reduce the total computation time. It is mainly because none of the traditional approaches is sufficient to effectively construct finite element meshes for arbitrarily complicated domains, and generally a great deal of manual interaction is involved in mesh generation. This contributed volume, the first for such an interdisciplinary topic, collects the latest research by experts in this area. These papers cover a broad range of topics, including medical imaging, image alignment and segmentation, image-to-mesh conversion, quality improvement, mesh warping, heterogeneous materials, biomodelcular modeling and simulation, as well as medical and engineering applications.

A Physical-Technical Introduction for Physicians and Biologists

Nowadays clinical medicine is to a great extent dependent on techniques and instrumentation. Not infrequently, instrumentation is so complicated that technical specialists are required to perform the measurements and to process the data. Interpretation of the results, however, generally has to be done by physicians. For proper interpretation of data and good com munication with technical specialists, knowledge of, among other things, principle, advantages, limitations and applicability of the used techniques is necessary. Besides, this knowledge is required for critical comparison of systems to measure a certain variable. Critical evaluation as well as com parison of techniques and instruments ought to be an essential component of medical practice. In general, basic techniques and instrumentation are not taught in medi cal schools nor during residencies. Therefore, physicians themselves have to collect practical information about principle, advantages and limitations of techniques and instruments when using them in clinical medicine. This practical information, focussed on the specific techniques used in the various disciplines, is usually difficult to obtain from handbooks and manufacturers' manuals. Hence a new series of books is started on instru mentation and techniques in clinical medicine.
A physician who is treating a patient confronts a complex and incompletely understood living system that is sensitive to pain. An engineer or programmer who develops a new device, on the other hand, operates within the less emotional domains of materials and mathematics. The Medicine Meets Virtual Reality (MMVR) conference brings together physicians, scientists, engineers, educators, students, and others to bridge the gap between clinicians and technologists, and to create collaborative solutions to healthcare challenges. This book presents the proceedings of the Medicine Meets Virtual Reality conference (MMVR19), held in Newport Beach, California, USA, in February 2012. It includes papers on modeling and simulation, imaging, data visualization and fusion, haptics, robotics, telemedicine and medical intelligence networking, virtual and augmented reality, psychotherapy and physical rehabilitation tools, serious games, and other topics. MMVR stimulates interaction between developers and end users and promotes unorthodox problem-solving as a complement to rigorous scientific methodology. This book will interest all who are involved with the future of medicine. close
