Description

-- Comprehensive LabVIEW design and development guidance for every biomedical engineer working in research, development, or clinical environments. -- Interfacing medical devices with databases, machine vision systems, decision-support tools, even the Internet itself. -- CD-ROM: easy-to-customize VI applications, source code, and evaluation versions of both LabVIEW and BioBench, the add-on toolbox for biomedical VI development.Whether you're working in biomedical research, development, or clinical environments, Virtual Bio-Instrumentation offers you unprecedented power and flexibility in solving a broad range of problems. This is the first comprehensive guide to VBI using the world's #1 graphical programming language for engineers, LabVIEW. Using practical examples and realistic sample applications, this book demonstrates how VBI can not only interface with traditional medical instruments and devices, but also leverage other technologies -- from databases to machine vision to the Internet itself. This book presents a broad range of applications, ranging from laboratory and clinical environment applications to techniques for integrating instruments with patient information systems, computerized maintenance and management systems, even business intelligence and decision support applications. Each application is explained in detail, often with interactive descriptions of how the solution was conceived and developed to meet specific end-user requirements. An accompanying CD-ROM includes all application source code, usable both as a learning tool and as building blocks for new applications. It also contains demo and evaluation versions of several software packages, including LabVIEW6i and BioBench, a commercial add-on toolbox for VBI developers.show more

Back cover copy

Bringing the power of virtual instrumentation to the biomedical community. Applications across diverse medical specialties Detailed design guides for LabVIEW and BioBench applications Hands-on problem-solving throughout the book Laboratory, clinical, and healthcare applications Numerous VI's with source code, plus several demos, are available on the book's web site Virtual instrumentation allows medical researchers and practitioners to combine the traditional diagnostic tools with advanced technologies such as databases, Active X, and the Internet. In both laboratory and clinical environments, users can interact with a wealth of disparate systems, facilitating better, faster, and more informed decision making. "Virtual Bio-Instrumentation: Biomedical, Clinical, and Healthcare Applications in LabVIEW" is the first book of its kind to apply VI technology to the biomedical field. Hands-on problems throughout the book demonstrate immediate practical uses Examples cover a variety of medical specialties Detailed design instructions give the inside view of LabVIEW and BioBench applications Both students and practicing professionals will appreciate the practical applications offered for modeling fundamental physiology, advanced systems analysis, medical device development and testing, and even hospital management and clinical engineering scenarios.show more
