Description & Coverage
Description:

Stemming from environmental, genetic, and situational factors, chronic disease is a critical concern in modern medicine. Managing treatment and controlling symptoms is imperative to the longevity and quality of life of patients with such diseases.

The Handbook of Research on Trends in the Diagnosis and Treatment of Chronic Conditions features current research on the diagnosis, monitoring, management, and treatment of recurring diseases such as diabetes, Parkinson's disease, autoimmune disorders, and others. This handbook is intended for practitioners and researchers across various disciplines including, but not limited to, biology, biomedical engineering, computer science, and information and communication technologies.

Aimed at identifying new disease determinants and the way in which new technologies can contribute to improved health outcomes, this handbook covers a variety of topics, including wearable and mobile technologies, capillaroscopy imaging, diagnostic and monitoring methods, and disease prediction modeling, among others.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Assistive Technologies
  • Clinical Ontology
  • Computer Predictive Models
  • In-Home Care Systems
  • Machine Learning and Data Mining
  • Medical Data Analysis
  • Personalized Management Methodologies
  • Signal and Image Processing
Reviews and Testimonials

A few contributors from medical sciences, but most from computer science, electrical engineering, and other technical fields survey research findings on various aspects of the diagnosis, monitoring, management, and treatment of chronic diseases, focusing on medical technologies and decision support systems. They cover detecting and treating chronic tissue, signal and image processing for chronic disease diagnosis, modeling chronic diseases, chronic disease monitoring, and mobile and wearable solutions for chronic diseases.
