Book Description

Computer-aided design (CAD) plays a key role in improving biomedical systems for various applications. It also helps in the detection, identification, predication, analysis, and classification of diseases, in the management of chronic conditions, and in the delivery of health services. This book discusses the uses of CAD to solve real-world problems and challenges in biomedical systems with the help of appropriate case studies and research simulation results. Aiming to overcome the gap between CAD and biomedical science, it describes behaviors, concepts, fundamentals, principles, case studies, and future directions for research, including the automatic identification of related disorders using CAD.



Proposes CAD for the study of biomedical signals to understand physiology and to improve healthcare systems’ ability to diagnose and identify health disorders.

Presents concepts of CAD for biomedical modalities in different disorders.

Discusses design and simulation examples, issues, and challenges.

Illustrates bio-potential signals and their appropriate use in studying different disorders.

Includes case studies, practical examples, and research directions.


Computer-Aided Design and Diagnosis Methods for Biometrical Applications is aimed at researchers, graduate students in biomedical engineering, image processing, biomedical technology, medical imaging, and health informatics.
