Book Description

14 Sep 1995 0471591890 978-0471591894
Rapid technological advances in electronics, electro–optics, and computer sciences have set the stage for an unprecedented drive toward improvement in existing medical devices and the development of exciting new ones. Imaging and sensing devices, microwaves, computers, and lasers are now routinely employed in medicine, and new medical devices with numerous diagnostic and therapeutic applications continue to proliferate. In the hopes of encouraging even greater progress, New Frontiers in Medical Device Technology offers the engineering, medical, and business communities an up–to–date report on current and emerging medical technologies.

This timely and authoritative book brings together a core of experts who provide comprehensive coverage of new medical device technologies and focus on the link between the engineering and medical aspects. Relevant engineering principles are reviewed before focusing on the state–of–the–art technologies and their applications. Topics include the therapeutic use of RF/microwave thermal techniques in cardiology, urology, cancer therapy and surgery; the use of solid–state, semiconductor, and other lasers in ophthalmology, cardiology, and surgery; and the application of new technologies in imagery, such as developments in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), acoustics, and radiometry.

For engineers, this book will provide knowledge of the needs, applications, and biological effects of medical devices and thus point the way toward new opportunities for engineering solutions. Members of the medical community will gain an understanding of the engineering concepts applied to medical devices and their most recent applications. Business and legal professionals will acquire a better understanding of medical technology and its enormous market potential.

New Frontiers in Medical Device Technology offers engineers and medical researchers stimulating information that will lead to collaboration, invention, and the advancement of new technologies and medical devices.
