Product Description

Review

" I highly recommend it for one-semester advanced graduate courses in computer graphics. For graduate students pursuing PhDs and professionals in research and development in the medical visualization filed, this book is well worth reading."--Computing Reviews,November 17,2014

HASH(0x95f2490c) out of 5 stars Excellent introduction and overview of the field with sufficient details 23 Jan. 2015
By tr - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is an entirely updated version of the first edition. It contains many new chapters and deeper insights in the area of medical visualization. The content is well suited for technical readers as well as medical professionals, since it provides overview information as well as technical details for many of the described concepts. The individual chapters discuss image acquisition in the beginning and proceed with more technical aspects ranging from image analysis to a broad set of visualization techniques. These chapters are an excellent introduction for novice readers, while at the same time providing a comprehensive overview of the state of the art. While relatively advanced concepts are discussed, the writing style makes it always easy to follow. In later chapters the reader comes across the initially introduced techniques again, when medical use cases are dominating the chapter structure. Thus, the reader learns for instance about brain visualization, surgery support and how to visually analyze blood flow. With this excellent combination of breath and depth, the book is spot on for courses focusing on visual computing in medicine at various levels.
HASH(0x95f24dbc) out of 5 stars Best compilation of work in medical visualization 9 April 2014
By K. Mehta - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
If you work in medical visualization (rendering, segmentation or product design) then this is the must book to have on your desk. I had previous edition too. What I like about this book is clear compilation of most up-to date techniques in one place. There are lot of references. I am thankful to Bernhard for putting together such work. Each chapter or sub-section is like STAR (State of the Art) report on that topic, so you can understand a lot in short period and avoid reading lots of paper!

However, keep in mind that this book is not step-to-step guide about how to implement different techniques. All techniques are discussed at bit high level and for some you may want to read other book or paper for details.
