Fourier Transform and one of its Medical Applications

Image processing has all been used in the study of various fields ranging from biology or to more specific fields like bacteriology. In medicine however Fourier transforms can also be used in the very same image processing tech to study skin lesions. Selected colors in FT images are studied by scientists and experts alike. One specific skin lesion study is that of Melanoma, which is a type of skin cancer.

In light with what I just cited, we can see the importance of Fourier Transforms and its application in image processing in medicine.

You can know more about the paper I just read here: http://link.springer.com/chapter/10.1007%2F978-3-319-08491-6_16#page-1

Which includes a more detailed explanation and dwells deeper into the properties of FT and how it is used in the researcher’s study.
