In present scenario, there is huge demand of the portable, wearable, implantable, wireless, miniature, medical sensors/devices because of modern and healthy living. All the medical devices have main function that is the acquisition and analysis of physiological data either offline or real time. Thus, Biomedical Signal and Image Processing plays vital role in the modern days. In healthcare system, medical devices help physicians and specialist in diagnosis, prognosis and therapeutics and High quality of the signal processing algorithm is an important part of each of these processes. In the research, validation of a medical device is only possible by accurate signal processing. Learning this book can provide skills to the student that can be immediately applied in real-life technological inventions. This new book will mainly focus on advanced topics in biomedical signal and image processing and its recent applications in medical and research field. Chapters include basics introduction, traditional analysis to latest analysis techniques and tool for bio-medical signal and image processing.


The field of biomedical signal and image processing has contributed immensely to human healthcare systems. In order to improve health and quality of human life, Signal and Image processing has played a major role in a wide range of health care system by identifying the meaningful features from different image diagnostic sources like X-ray, Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), Computer-assisted ECG, EEG, EMG, Audio and Video monitoring, Ultrasound, Tomography, Scans, Continuous physiological monitoring, tele-healthcare, tele-medicine. Signal and Image Processing has played important role in the development of intelligent healthcare systems and devices. The objective of this book is to bridge the gap between signal processing and healthcare system and present a collection of high-quality research work that report the latest advances in the area of Signal and Image processing techniques in healthcare. The unique characteristics of the publication would be:
1. The proposed publication will be very well targeted towards providing quality and latest research by eminent researchers.
2. The area which will be part of published work will be having a significant influence for the business users, common people and has a great impact on the society.

Target Audience

The impact of the contribution through this edited book is going to be widespread considering the very fact that advanced biomedical signal and image processing techniques are being needed and are of utmost importance in the development of health-care systems.

Potential uses
1. The researchers will be able to know the latest application area of the biomedical signal and image processing in developing tools for health-care systems.
2. The business users will get to know how of advanced biomedical signal and image processing techniques for health-care systems.
3. Learning this book can provide skills to the student that can be immediately applied in real-life technological inventions.
