City image analysis expert authors new book
Dr Constantino Carlos Reyes-Aldasoro, a Lecturer in Biomedical Image Analysis in the Department of Electrical Engineering, has just published an innovative textbook for life scientists and engineers to better analyse biomedical images using MATLAB.
Titled, “Biomedical Image Analysis Recipes in MATLAB: For Life Scientists and Engineers” (Wiley: June 2015), Dr Reyes-Aldasoro’s new book is designed as a tutorial for researchers who do not come from a mathematical background and are interested in performing image analysis. Basic concepts of image analysis are presented without going too deeply into theory and applications, while solutions to common biological images are presented to the reader by way of image analysis algorithms. This is essentially a recipe book; each chapter is a self-contained biomedical experiment to be analysed with 'recipes' that perform a specific analysis of techniques and algorithms. Medical and biomedical Image analysis is an interdisciplinary activity which draws on expertise found in computer science, engineering, physics, clinical practice and bioscience.
Last year, Dr Reyes-Aldasoro and Dr Greg Slabaugh, Senior Lecturer in Computer Science, co-chaired the 18th annual Medical Image Understanding and Analysis conference.

MATLAB stands for MATrix LABoratory. It is multi-paradigm computing environment and fourth-generation programming language. It is widely used in all areas of applied mathematics, in education and research and is a great tool for solving algebraic and differential equations and for numerical integration. MATLAB has powerful graphic tools and produces striking images in 2D and 3D.
