Medical imaging is of one of the most essential means in the investigation of cardiac disorders. In patients, the detection of the whole heart and its adjacent tissues is a crucial procedure since it helps in myocarditis and pericarditis managements. Weekly, there are millions of cardiac imaging performed globally. Medical imaging and processing techniques such as image segmentation, augmentation, and scrutiny can detect cardiac lesions rapidly and precisely. This chapter discusses the application of medical imaging in the diagnosis of myocarditis and pericarditis. This chapter also summarized how to demonstrate image interpretation challenges using diverse image processing procedures and techniques.

Medical imaging of the nervous system is the methodology used to achieve pictures of parts of the nervous system for therapeutic uses to recognize the ailments. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a kind of medical imaging tool that utilizes solid magnetic fields and radio waves to deliver point-by-point pictures of the inside of the body. There are large number of imaging methodologies done each week around the world. Medical imaging is developing rapidly due to developments in image acquisition tools including functional MRI and hybrid imaging modalities. This chapter abridged the role of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in autonomic nervous system monitoring. This chapter also summarizes the image interpretation challenges in diagnosing autonomic nervous system disorders.
