Numerical simulation of anomalous diffusion with application to medical imaging

Yu, Qiang (2013) Numerical simulation of anomalous diffusion with application to medical imaging. PhD by Publication, Queensland University of Technology.


The first objective of this project is to develop new efficient numerical methods and supporting error and convergence analysis for solving fractional partial differential equations to study anomalous diffusion in biological tissue such as the human brain. The second objective is to develop a new efficient fractional differential-based approach for texture enhancement in image processing. The results of the thesis highlight that the fractional order analysis captured important features of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) relaxation and can be used to improve the quality of medical imaging.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
