Written specifically for biomedical engineers, Biosignal and Medical Image Processing, Third Edition provides a complete set of signal and image processing tools, including diagnostic decision-making tools, and classification methods. Thoroughly revised and updated, it supplies important new material on nonlinear methods for describing and classifying signals, including entropy-based methods and scaling methods. A full set of PowerPoint slides covering the material in each chapter and problem solutions is available to instructors for download.

The text provides a general understanding of image processing sufficient to allow intelligent application of the concepts, including a description of the underlying mathematical principals when needed. Throughout this textbook, signal and image processing concepts are implemented using the MATLAB ® software package and several of its toolboxes.
The challenge of covering a broad range of topics at a useful, working depth is motivated by current trends in biomedical engineering education, particularly at the graduate level where a comprehensive education must be attained with a minimum number of courses. This has led to the development of "core" courses to be taken by all students. This text was written for just such a core course. It is also suitable for an upper-level undergraduate course and would also be of value for students in other disciplines that would benefit from a working knowledge of signal and image processing.

"...An excellent review of the actual trendiest techniques in signal processing with a very clear (and simplified) description of their capabilities in signal and image analysis. Matlab examples are an excellent addition to provide students with capabilities to understand better how the techniques work..."

"The book is a welcome addition to the teaching literature for biomedical engineering, building on the previous edition's friendly approach to introducing the material. This makes it particularly suitable for biomedical engineering, a field in which students come from a variety of backgrounds, and where familiarity of the fundamentals of electrical engineering cannot be assumed."
-David A. Clifton, University of Oxford, UK
