About the book

This book will provide the full perspectives of the biomedical imaging, including methodological developments, device designs, and disease applications. Methodological developments will include advanced biomedical imaging processing techniques such as image registration and normalization, image reconstruction and acceleration, contrast enhancement and statistical analyses. Device designs will include multi-modality imaging principles and integration; such as MRI, PET, CT, EEG and MEG. Disease applications will focus on the improvements of diagnosis accuracy based on new imaging technique in addition to the conventional neurological and whole-body imaging. For instance, in the research field of multi-modality imaging, new applications including pre-surgical planning with novel functional MRI sequence, ultra high-resolution brain myelin mapping with connectome technique, and clinical application of hybrid device such as PET/MRI will be covered.

Thorough review of most available biomedical imaging techniques and detailed illustration of the applications in large cohorts and challenging diseases are the purpose of this book. This book would hopefully capture the attention of colleagues interested in biomedical imaging principles and applications, research and development, as well as disease diagnosis and treatment, and could help convey the methodological and developmental perspectives of biomedical imaging in the medical application and research field.

About the editor

Yongxia Zhou

University of Southern California

Yongxia Zhou obtained a PhD from the University of Southern California in Biomedical Imaging in 2004. Her main research interest is in radiology and neuroscience applications. She had been trained and worked as a medical imaging scientist at several prestigious institutes including Columbia University, University of Pennsylvania, and the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Her research focuses on multimodal neuroimaging integration including MRI/PET and EEG/MEG instrumentation that makes the best use of multiple modalities to help interpret underlying disease mechanisms. She has authored six monograph books, and edited several books for well-known publishers including IntechOpen and Nova Science. She has published more than 100 papers and presentations in many reputed international journals and conferences, and served as reviewer and editor for several well-known associations.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Dajana Pemac

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
