Viewing medical images such as

  • x-rays
  • CT-images
  • MRI images
  • ultrasound images
  • optical microscope images

allows doctors to better diagnose illnesses, and allows researchers to better understand the human physiology to develop better therapy or design better rehabilitation or surgical devices. The raw images may not provide information in a format useful for interpretation, or may take too much human labor to interpret. Addition of automated image processing procedures can make the desired information available for down-stream applications.
