The Encyclopedia of Biomedical Engineering is a unique source for the rapidly growing biomedical engineering community, on topics at the interface of the biological sciences and engineering. Biomaterials, biomedical devices and techniques play a significant role in improving the quality of health care in the developed world and in the developing world, as healthcare consumers continue to demand ever more complex devices for diagnosis and treatment of medical conditions. The Encyclopedia of Biomedical Engineering covers an extensive range of topics related to biomedical engineering, including biomaterials, sensors, medical devices, imaging modalities, and imaging processing. In addition, applications of biomedical engineering, advances in cardiology, drug delivery, gene therapy, orthopaedics, ophthalmology, sensing, and tissue engineering are explored. This important reference work serves many groups working at the interface of the biological sciences and engineering, including engineering students, biological science students, clinicians, and industrial researchers.
