The objective of this Brief is to provide a solution to the unsolved technical problem in segmentation for the automated bone age assessment system. The task is accomplished by first applying the modified histogram equalized module, then applying the proposed automated anisotropic diffusion technique. It is followed by a novel fuzzy quadruple division scheme to optimize the central segmentation algorithm, and then an additional quality assurance scheme. The designed segmentation framework works without demanding scarce resources such as training sets and skillful operators. The results have shown that the designed framework is capable of separating the soft-tissue and background from the hand bone with high accuracy. This Brief should be especially useful for students and professional researchers in the Biomedical and image processing fields.

The mechanical properties of whole bones, bone tissue, and the bone-implant interfaces are as important as their morphological and structural aspects. Mechanical Testing of Bone and the Bone-Implant Interface helps you assess these properties by explaining how to do mechanical testing of bone and the bone-implant interface for bone-related research. Articles explore the basic mechanical principles of bone-related study and how to conduct mechanical testing of bone specimens. More practical than theoretical, the text includes 42 chapters in three sections that cover mechanical properties of bone, general considerations of mechanical testing, basic facilities and instruments for mechanical testing; mechanical testing procedures on bone tissues; and mechanical testing procedures on the implant-bone interface. There are approximately three hundred illustrations, including line drawings, diagrams, tables, and photographs. Mechanical Testing of Bone and the Bone-Implant Interface is the most concise, straightforward, and in-depth treatment ever to be published - long needed by the orthopedic and bone research communities.

In 1980 the Internal Emitters Committee of EULEP organised a symposium in Rotterdam on Bone and Bone Seeking Radionu cI ides: Their Physiology, Dosimetry and Effects. The speakers for this meeting, mostly from EULEP associ ated laboratories, were chosen to review this field of scientific research mostly for the benefit of interested scientists who were not actively researching with bone seeking radionuclides. This meeting was a success and its proceedings were subsequently published in the form of a book by the Commission of the European Communities, reflecting the great importance that both EULEP and the Radiologi cal Protection Programme of the Commission of the European Communities attaches to the study of radionuclides that deposit in bone. The Metals in Bone symposium in Angers was intended to serve a different function from that of the meeting held in Rotterdam in that, while these proceed ings will certainly be of interest to non-involved scientists, the meeting was intended to be of most benefit to those actively researching the metabolism and effects of bone-seeking metals. Moreover, in an attempt to increase the value of its discussions and the number of interested and participating scientists, the remit of the meeting was broader and set to include papers on stable as well as radioactive metals.

Nitric oxide research has emerged as one of the most important areas in bone and joint diseases. First published in 1998, this book draws together knowledge on the actions of this mediator and its role in such common diseases as arthritis and osteoporosis. It introduces the basic biology and biochemistry of nitric oxide, the immune response and bone biology. It reviews in depth the facts we know today and the future promise of this exciting area of research. The book will give scientists and clinicians a unique insight into this increasingly important area. It also emphasises potential treatments which exploit our understanding of the role of nitric oxide in bone and joint disease.

Bone research in recent years has generated much new knowledge, in large measure because of the broad public health implications of osteoporosis and related bone disorders. Bone Formation, the first in a series entitled Topics in Bone Biology, evaluates this new information and formulates novel insights and hypotheses within the broad framework of current knowledge. An easy-to handle and to read work, with concise reviews that are extensively referenced, the chapters in this book are written by internationally known authorities. Particular emphasis is on osteoporosis and related disorders of diminished bone formation. Among the general topics treated is a chapter on biomechanical aspects of bone formation, not often considered in relation to diseases of bone formation. The book constitutes essential reading for those entering the field of bone biology and those who wish to become familiar with up-to-date information in a particular area of bone research.

A state-of-the-art review of the molecular underpinnings of bone-seeking cancers, current treatment approaches for them, and future therapeutic strategies. The authors illuminate the role of various autocrine, paracrine, and immunological factors involved in the progression and establishment of bone metastases, highlighting the physiological processes that lead to bone degradation, pain, angiogenesis, and dysregulation of bone turnover. They also discuss the various strategies that appear to have promise and are currently deployed in treatment or are at the experimental stage.
