Scope: Generally speaking, Biometrics is defined as an advanced technology used to recognize individuals from their physical or behavioural characteristics. By considering security and control applications (e.g. identification and verification), biometrics is commonly regarded as an innovative solution. Among the concerned fields, medical and healthcare environments are frequently mentioned as promising applications.

As specified by this book’s title, the purpose is to deal with biometrics from biomedical engineering point of view. In particular, two main sections will be addressed. In the first section, some chapters will be devoted to advanced applications of biometrics in clinical environments. The concerned topics will consider, newborn, patients and medical staff control, but also medical and clinical biometrics,  from biosignal measurement point of view, excluding security applications.

In the second part, we consider more technical subjects in order to highlight the sensitivity of some common biometric modalities (e.g. face, iris, fingerprint) under some specific constraints such as pathologies, injuries, plastic surgery and ageing.

This book is suitable for final-year undergraduate students, postgraduate students, engineers and researchers in the field of Computer-engineering, Information Technology (IT), Biometrics, Biomedical engineering and more specifically applied Digital Signal and Image processing.
