This book covers state-of-the-art medical image analysis approaches currently pursued in autism research. Chapters cover recent advances in diagnosis using structural neuroimaging. All aspects of imaging are included, such as electrophysiology (EEG, ERP, QEEG, and MEG), postmortem techniques, and advantages and difficulties of depositing/acquiring images in larger databases. The book incorporates 2D, 3D, and 4D imaging and advances scientific research within the broad field of autismimaging.
- Contains the contributions of highly recognized researchers in autism, including Manual F. Casanova
- Covers computer-aided detection and diagnosis, especially for those in high-risk populations
- Discusses multimodality fusion (MRI/PET, PET/CT, ERPs, and fMRI) for diagnosis, image analysis, and image-guided interventions
- Includes in-depth coverage of image reconstruction
- Applies machine learning applications to medical images with 2D, 3D, and 4D data
