This is a comprehensive survey of the multi-disciplinary field of biomedical engineering. The book is intended to be the introductory textbook for the first course at the undergraduate junior level and as the introductory textbook in graduate programs in biomedical engineering programs. The book is also intended to be utilized as a professional reference book for engineers and biomedical researchers requiring a knowledge of the basic fundamentals and the latest advances in biomedical engineering. This text/reference will have worked examples throughout the text as well as end-of-chapter homework and self-study problems. In addition to the pedagogy within the book, the authors will maintain a website of relevant laboratory simulations and links to other biomedical engineering web sites.

Review quote

An excellent introductory textbook...with as complete a coverage of relevant topics as can be wished for... --Journal of Controlled Release 75 (2001) Course organizers will find the book particularly useful, as numerous examples and exercises are included to help students consolidate their new-found knowledge. The text is adequately supported by line drawings, and each chapter is followed by a list of suggestions for further reading. Overall, the authors have succeeded in their task and are to be congratulated on the production of what is sure to become a popular text book. --PHYSIOLOGICAL MEASUREMENT, May 2000 ...finally, an introductory textbook that is both broad and deep, and more importantly, useable. I intend to use this book in the introductory biomedical engineering course that I teach. --Al Wald, Columbia University, in the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology, Nov/Dec 1999
