"Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering" provides broad coverage appropriate for senior undergraduates and graduates in medical physics and biomedical engineering. Divided into two parts, the first part presents the underlying physics, electronics, anatomy, and physiology and the second part addresses practical applications. The structured approach means that later chapters build and broaden the material introduced in the opening chapters; for example, students can read chapters covering the introductory science of an area and then study the practical application of the topic.Coverage in this title includes: biomechanics; ionizing and non-ionizing radiation and the measurements; image formation techniques, processing, and analysis; safety issues; biomedical devices; mathematical and statistical techniques; physiological signals and responses; and, respiratory and cardiovascular function and measurement. Where necessary, references to the mathematical background are provided and detailed derivations are kept to a minimum. Comprehensive references to junior undergraduate texts in physics, electronics, and life sciences are provided in the bibliographies at the end of each chapter.
