Medical image processing is the meeting of two sciences that behave in completely different ways. While medicine is a science where experience plays a majors role and where the practical use is evident, image processing—as a derivative of applied mathematics—is a more theoretical discipline. Hence, the conditions of this meeting need to be analyzed sophisticatedly; not everything possible to implement is useful, and not everything useful is possible to implement.

In this introductory part, we describe the biomedical context and the clinical motivation of the methods presented in this chapter.
