Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 4)

The modern era is moving towards handheld miniature devices with all kinds of video, audio, imaging, and gaming applications supported. The applications are no longer looking forward to personal computer-based platforms. Handheld devices or mobile devices have limitations, however. The major challenges faced today in designing embedded systems for imaging applications are memory and computational requirements to achieve the same quality as desktop applications. One such application that demands a very high picture quality and memory requirements, is a medical imaging system.
