            This authoritative guide presents and explains numerous 3-D image processing, analysis, and visualization techniques, including volume filtering, interpolation, 3-D discrete Fourier transform, evaluation of topological and geometrical features, region segmentation and edge detection, skeletonization and registration, and visualization. Necessary theoretical background is provided for each topic, along with a number of algorithms, selected on the basis of their acceptance by the scientific community. The presentation of each technique includes a commented implementation, either in C code or in C-like pseudocode. This combination of theoretical treatment and C code implementation allows readers to gain a thorough insight into these techniques.

            Based on the author's long experience in research and teaching of 2-D/3-D image processing, 3-D Image Processing Algorithms is an indispensable resource for electrical, computer and biomedical engineers, as well as computer graphics professional and programmers.

    Important features of 3-D Image Processing Algorithms include:

  • A demo version of EIKONA3D 3-D image processing software
  • Lab exercises based on EIKONA3D
  • Accompanying transparencies summarizing the most important topics
