A short decade ago, The Biomedical Engineering Handbook debuted and was quickly embraced as the biomedical engineer’s “Bible.” Four years later, the field had grown so dramatically that the handbook was offered in two volumes. Now, the early years of the new millennium have seen so much growth and change in the biomedical field that a new, larger, and broader resource is necessary. In its most versatile incarnation yet, this Third Edition is available as a set of three carefully organized and focused volumes that, when combined, maintain the handbook’s standing as the most comprehensive, interdisciplinary, and timely biomedical reference available. 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.
