About this title


Biomedical Technology and Devices, Second Edition focuses on the equipment, devices, and techniques used in modern medicine to diagnose, treat, and monitor human illnesses. Gathering together and compiling the latest information available on medical technology, this revised work adds ten new chapters. It starts with the basics, introducing the history of the thermometer and measuring body temperature, before moving on to a medley of devices that are far more complex.

This book explores diverse technological functions and procedures including signal processing, auditory systems, magnetic resonance imaging, ultrasonic and emission imaging, image-guided thermal therapy, medical robotics, shape memory alloys, biophotonics, and tissue engineering. Each chapter offers a description of the technique, its technical considerations, and its use according to its applications and relevant body systems. It can be used as a professional resource, as well as a textbook for undergraduate and graduate students.

About the Author:

James E. Moore, Jr., PhD, received his bachelor’s in mechanical engineering with highest honor from the Georgia Institute of Technology, followed by an MS and a PhD from the same school and institute. Following a postdoctoral fellowship at the Swiss Institute of Technology in Lausanne, he has held faculty positions at Florida International University, Texas A&M University, and now Imperial College London. His research focuses on the biomechanics of the cardiovascular and lymphatic systems.

Duncan J. Maitland, PhD, has worked as an engineer in aerospace, national defense, and biomedical applications since 1985. He received his BEE (electrical engineering) and MS (physics) from Cleveland State University. He received his PhD in biomedical engineering from Northwestern University. After his PhD, he worked at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory for 12 years and subsequently joined the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the Texas A&M University in 2008. His research projects include endovascular interventional devices, micro actuators, optical therapeutic devices, and basic device–body interactions/physics, including computational and experimental techniques.
