Book: Biosignal and Biomedical Image Processing
Publisher: CRC Press
Relying heavily on MATLAB® problems and examples, as well as simulated data, this text/reference surveys a vast array of signal and image processing tools for biomedical applications, providing a working knowledge of the technologies addressed while showcasing valuable implementation procedures, common pitfalls, and essential application concepts. The first and only textbook to supply a hands-on tutorial in biomedical signal and image processing, it offers a unique and proven approach to signal processing instruction, unlike any other competing source on the topic. The text is accompanied by a CD with support data files and software including all MATLAB examples and figures found in the text.Signal processing can be broadly defined as the application of digital techniques to improve the utility of a data stream. In biomedical engineering applications, improved utility usually means the data provide better diagnostic information. Analog techniques are applied to a data stream embodied as a time-varying electrical signal while in the digital domain the data are represented as an array of numbers.
