"The Image Processing Handbook" presents an extensive collection of image processing tools that should prove invaluable in maximizing the quality and usefulness of visual information. This book covers methods used for enhancing the visual appearance of images and preparing images for measurement. It should help readers to understand and apply methods provided in packaged software or enable them to programme those additions that may be necessary for particular applications. The aqcuisition of grey-scale and colour images and methods for correcting imaging defects such as geometric distortion and nonuniform illumination are demonstrated. The book details the selective enhancement of images, such as edge finding, noise suppression and texture extraction by grey scale processing and frequency space processing operations. Segmentation of images and the processing of binary images using morphological and Boolean operations are shown, and three-dimensional imaging using tomographic reconstruction, serial sections and volumetric and surface rendering methods are illustrated.

Praise for the previous editions: - Anna W. Ren, Head of Public Services, Northwestern University "Every person who uses computer image processing...who is planning to use image processing...who is involved in the purchase of computer systems or software that involve image processing...should read this book. And if you are not in one of the above groups, you might want to read it anyway." - Microscopy Research and Technique "An excellent book, not only for the entrant into image processing and analysis, but also as a reference for those who use these techniques on a daily basis." - P.G.T. Howell, University College London "This is a wonderful book on image processing...This book is an example of what an image processing book should be as Russ explains image processing the right way-through pictures." -Dwayne Phillips, Editor's Choice Review Service "a well-balanced volume that will find a place on many bookshelves but will not accumulate dust!already my favourite reference work for image processing!" - B. Batchelor, Cardiff University There are not many textbooks on image processing that can really be recommended to undergraduate students, but this is one of them." -Computing Reviews, February 1999 "The production quality of the volume is superbJohn Russ has succeeded in providing a book that meets the intended aim: to provide a self-instruction course on the fundamentals of image processing. I recommend this handbook to those who wish to explore the myriad techniques of digital image processing as well as performing measurements on the processed images." -Barry R. Masters, Journal of Microscopy, October 1999
