What’s included in the Third Edition?
Biomedical Engineering Fundamentals
This first volume surveys physiology, bioelectric phenomena, biomaterials, biomechanics, and the other broad disciplines that constitute the modern biomedical engineering landscape. It includes an entirely new section on neuroengineering in addition to many new and revised chapters and a 14-page full-color insert.
Medical Devices and Systems
Offering an overview of the tools of the biomedical engineering trade, this book focuses on signal analysis, imaging, sensors, devices, systems, instruments, and clinical engineering. It includes two new sections on infrared imaging and medical informatics, numerous other additions and updates, and a 32-page full-color insert.
Tissue Engineering and Artificial Organs
The third installment examines state-of-the-art applications of biomedical engineering. Integrating life sciences as another facet of the field, it includes a new section on molecular biology. The book also features a new section on bionanotechnology, 90 percent new material in the tissue engineering section, many new and updated chapters, and a 24-page full-color insert.
Incorporating new developments, technologies, and disciplines, The Biomedical Engineering Handbook, Third Edition remains the most comprehensive central core of knowledge available to the field.
"The handbook provides a wonderful encyclopedic overview of the field of biomedical engineering. With this respect it is on the one hand a high quality work to get started with in the field but on the other hand a comprehensive reference book for experienced scientists. I would not want to miss it in my library."
