Description:

This book provides complete descriptions of the techniques involved in medical image processing, using sufficient descriptions and practical references. Chapters cover topics of deformable registration, segmentation, image reconstruction, and integration of these practices into the radiation therapy environment. The four sections provide an overview of the image segmentation and reconstruction techniques using image processing across all modalities, and applications of these approaches in radiation therapy. The book also addresses the applications of registration, segmentation, and image reconstruction for radiation therapy, including adaptive radiotherapy, monitoring and tracking of treatment delivery, quantifying accuracy, and visualizing results.

Features:

Offers a complete overview of image registration, segmentation, and reconstruction techniques as well as their effectiveness and applicability in a radiation therapy context
Covers underlying physics and image processing associated with the techniques
Includes critical evaluation of parametric and non-parametric image registration techniques and their applications in radiation therapy processes
Covers image segmentation techniques, from atlas-based to level set and registration-based techniques across modalities
Includes adaptive radiotherapy, monitoring and tracking of treatment delivery, quantifying accuracy, and visualizing results
Contains expert assessments on covered topics
