Prepare to conquer the Nth dimension! To begin the course, you'll learn how to load, build and navigate N-dimensional images using a CT image of the human chest. You'll also leverage the useful ImageIO package and hone your NumPy and matplotlib skills.
Cut image processing to the bone by transforming x-ray images. You'll learn how to exploit intensity patterns to select sub-regions of an array, and you'll use convolutional filters to detect interesting features. You'll also use SciPy's ndimage module, which contains a treasure trove of image processing tools.
In this chapter, you'll get to the heart of image analysis: object measurement. Using a 4D cardiac time series, you'll determine if a patient is likely to have heart disease. Along the way, you'll learn the fundamentals of image segmentation, object labeling, and morphological measurement.
For the final chapter, you'll need to use your brain... and hundreds of others! Drawing data from more than 400 open-access MR images, you'll learn the basics of registration, resampling, and image comparison. Then, you'll use the extracted measurements to evaluate the effect of Alzheimer's Disease on brain structure.
