Summary "This much-needed book teaches users how to create their own applications using MATLAB, as a complement to commercial software particularly when the latter does not cover specific clinical needs. Readers will learn to independently analyse and/or process images and other clinical data in order to deal with standard and non-standard clinical situations. The primary objectives are real clinical problems and the demonstration of methods to deal with them. This book is expected to improve significantly readers' levels of understanding of areas such as data nature, information contents and data flow. Areas covered include diagnostics, radiotherapy, feedback following treatment and QA"-- Provided by publisher
