- Provides a comprehensive overview of computational intelligence research and technologies in computer-assisted radiation therapy
- Enriches understanding of technical advancements and research findings in image-based computer-assisted radiation therapy
- Maximizes reader insights into the modern medical technologies and systems for image-based computer-assisted radiation therapy
This book provides a comprehensive overview of the state-of-the-art computational intelligence research and technologies in computer-assisted radiation therapy based on image engineering. It also traces major technical advancements and research findings in the field of image-basedcomputer-assisted radiation therapy.
In high-precision radiation therapies, novel approaches in image engineering including computer graphics, image processing, pattern recognition, and computational anatomy play important roles in improving the accuracy of radiation therapy and assisting decision making by radiationoncology professionals, such as radiation oncologists, radiation technologists, and medical physicists, in each phase of radiation therapy.
All the topics presented in this book broaden understanding of the modern medical technologies and systems for image-based computer-assisted radiation therapy. Therefore this volume will greatly benefit not only radiation oncologists and radiologists but also radiation technologists, professors in medical physics or engineering, and engineers involved in the development of products to utilize this advanced therapy.
