ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

This book is the first to comprehensively explore elasticity imaging and examines recent, important developments in asymptotic imaging, modeling, and analysis of deterministic and stochastic elastic wave propagation phenomena. It derives the best possible functional images for small inclusions and cracks within the context of stability and resolution, and introduces a topological derivative–based imaging framework for detecting elastic inclusions in the time-harmonic regime. For imaging extended elastic inclusions, accurate optimal control methodologies are designed and the effects of uncertainties of the geometric or physical parameters on stability and resolution properties are evaluated. In particular, the book shows how localized damage to a mechanical structure affects its dynamic characteristics, and how measured eigenparameters are linked to elastic inclusion or crack location, orientation, and size. Demonstrating a novel method for identifying, locating, and estimating inclusions and cracks in elastic structures, the book opens possibilities for a mathematical and numerical framework for elasticity imaging of nanoparticles and cellular structures.

Inverse Problems In Dynamic Elasticity Imaging

Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Since the early 1990’s, elasticity imaging techniques are developed as a powerful supplement of the medical toolbox in diagnostic analysis and computer aided surgery. By solving a so-called inverse problem, information about the spatial variation of material parameters of soft (human) tissue are derived from displacement data, which can be measured noninvasively using standard imaging devices such as ultrasound or magnetic resonance tomography. The terms of quasi-static and dynamic elastography refer to the type of load situation, by which the tissue in question is excited. The extension of the theoretical formulation and implementation of the underlying inverse problem in quasi-static elastography to time-harmonic approaches poses several additional challenges, which are addressed in detail within the course of this study. We propose a robust strategy for the reconstruction, which takes advantage of the high sensitivity of the accuracy in harmonic elastography to the choice of the starting point. While not being reported in the literature up to now, the quite competing claims of quasi-static and time-harmonic elastography motivate a comprehensive comparison of these two techniques. Via a spectral decomposition of the curvature information of the underlying inverse problem, a clear explanation for an improved robustness of time- harmonic elastography in the presence of inaccuracies due to noise and/or numerical approximations can be given. Several numerical examples confirm these findings as well as the efficiency of the proposed reconstruction strategy. In particular, it is shown that for moderately low frequencies, it is sufficient to use very coarse finite element meshes, so that the only additional computational cost stems from the worse conditioning of the system matrix.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Biomedical imaging is a fascinating research area to applied mathematicians. Challenging imaging problems arise and they often trigger the investigation of fundamental problems in various branches of mathematics. This is the first book to highlight the most recent mathematical developments in emerging biomedical imaging techniques. The main focus is on emerging multi-physics and multi-scales imaging approaches. For such promising techniques, it provides the basic mathematical concepts and tools for image reconstruction. Further improvements in these exciting imaging techniques require continued research in the mathematical sciences, a field that has contributed greatly to biomedical imaging and will continue to do so. The volume is suitable for a graduate-level course in applied mathematics and helps prepare the reader for a deeper understanding of research areas in biomedical imaging.
