Title: Imaging Modalities based Disease Diagnosis


Bio-medical image analysis is an interdisciplinary field which includes: biology, physics, medicine and engineering. It deals with application of image processing techniques to biological or medical problems. Medical images to be analysed contain a lot of information regarding the anatomical structure under investigation to reveal valid diagnosis and thereby helping doctors to choose adequate therapy. Doctors usually analyse these medical images manually through visual interpretation. But visual analysis of these images by human observers is limited due to variation in interpersonal interpretations, fatigue errors, surrounding disturbances and moreover this kind of analysis is purely subjective. On the other hand, automated analysis of these images using computers with suitable techniques favours the objective analysis by an expert and thereby improving the diagnostic confidence and accuracy of analysis. In an ideal world, we’d be able to diagnose and treat patients without any harmful side effects. Medical imaging remains one of the best ways to achieve this, as it allows us to see what’s going on inside the body without the need for surgery or other invasive procedures. Indeed, it’s something we’re perhaps guilty of taking for granted at times.

Medical imaging can be used for both diagnosis and therapeutic purposes, making it one of the most powerful resources available to effectively care for our patients.

In terms of diagnosis, common imaging types include:

  • CT (Computer Tomography)
  • MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging)
  • Ultrasound
  • X-ray
  • Nuclear medicine imaging (including positron-emission tomography (PET)).

Each type works slightly differently to create images of what’s going on inside the body.
