Review:

This book explores synergies between biomedical diagnostics and clinical technologies and high-performance cluster and grid computing technologies addressing selected topics in these areas. Special attention is paid to biomedical diagnostics and clinical technologies with critical requirements in terms of processing power, namely 2D/3D medical image segmentation and reconstruction, volumetric texture analysis in biomedical imaging, modeling and simulation in medicine, computer aided diagnosis, analysis of doppler embolic signals, and massive data classification of neural responses. ... The purpose of this book is to provide a written compilation for the dissemination of knowledge and to improve our understanding about high performance computing in biomedical applications. The book is directed for Master of Science or Doctor of Philosophy students, researchers and professionals working in the broad field of biomedical informatics. We expect that the deep analyses provided inside the book will be valuable to researchers and others professionals interested in the latest knowledge in these fields. --Manuela Pereira, University of Beira Interior, Portugal; and Mario Freire, University of Beira Interior, Portugal
