Encyclopedia of Diagnostic Imaging

The purpose of this finished encyclopedia is to supply distinctive info on diagnostic radiology contributing to the large box of imaging. the big variety of entries are written through major specialists. they are going to supply simple and medical scientists in academia, perform and with precious information regarding the sector of diagnostic imaging.

Sectional Anatomy: PET CT and SPECT CT

This well timed atlas information developments in PET/CT and SPECT/CT. every one bankruptcy offers nuclear medication practitioners, radiologists, oncologists, and citizens with distinct info on basic anatomy of FDG PET/CT, adaptations and artifacts of FDG PET/CT, common anatomy of non-FDG PET/CT, and common anatomy of PET/CT and SPECT/CT.

Coloscopie Virtuelle

L. a. coloscopie virtuelle a considérablement bouleversé l’approche du dépistage et du diagnostic du melanoma colorectal et des polypes. l. a. reconstruction 3D des organes permet en effet de les explorer virtuellement, épargnant au sufferer le traumatisme de l. a. coloscopie endoscopique. Elle a désormais une position importante aux côtés de l. a. coloscopie endoscopique et peut, dans un nombre de cas croissants, réaliser une replacement fiable.

The term “gold standard” is sometimes used to mean essentially the same thing. Defining ground truth in biological systems is often complicated. Although applications related to remote sensing, for Copyright © 2002 Marcel Dekker, Inc. , assessment of most disease processes and symptoms are not always defined in absolute terms. This is particularly applicable to medical image interpretation. For tumor detection in medical images, ground truth typically would refer to the pathology results from biopsy specimens.

This is due in part to inadequate or small Copyright © 2002 Marcel Dekker, Inc. data sets at the research stage, inconsistent evaluation criteria, and optimistic train/test formulations. To whatever extent possible, the test data should be typical of what could be expected in a real-world environment. This applies with respect to the subtlety of the tumors, variability of image quality, and overall appearance of the images. For example, mammogram images exhibit a wide variety of breast tissue densities and textures.
