With rapid advancements in technology, body imaging or components thereof, have become ubiquitous in medicine. While the biomedical devices such as the MRI, CT, X-rays, Ultrasound, PET/SPECT and Microscopy etc, provide us with high resolution images, the challenges that have continued to confront us with, lie in the interpretation of the vast amounts of data generated by these devices. Biomedical applications are the 'bottom-line' essentials in the diagnostic world. It is this diagnostic interpretation feature that forms the core niche for these books and will serve the needs of a broad spectrum of audience including researchers, research clinicians, and students. Together these three volumes of the Handbook of Biomedical Image Analysis, Volume 1 - Segementation Part A; Volume 2-Segmentation Part B; and Volume 3 - Registration, illustrate the role of the fusion of registration and segmentation systems for complete biomedical applications therapy delivery benefiting the biomedical doctors, clinical researchers, radiologists and others. Each volume in this set features a CD-ROM containing pedagogical material and numerous color illustrations.
