Product description

Review

"The text provides clear descriptions of medical devices and techniques such as MRI, CAT scan and cochlear implant. It discusses biological systems that can be analyzed quantitatively and shows how advances in the life sciences have been aided by the knowledge of physical or engineering analysis techniques."--Anticancer Research, August 2013

Reviews from the 2e:

"This is a book you should consider if you are teaching the one-semester premed course. This text could be used in two ways: 1) as a text for a one-term course in the physics of the body (without calculus) for non-physics majors in premed or allied health programs, or 2) as a supplementary text for the introductory physics course, particularly for premed students."--Russell Hobbie, University of Minnesota "There is certainly a viable market (for this book), if not as a stand-alone physics text, as a collection of problems, examples, and discussions at the boundary between physics and biology and medicine. It is very well written; it is certainly accurate; and it is pretty complete."--David Cinabro, Wayne State University

From the Back Cover

Paul Davidovits, Professor of Chemistry at Boston College, was co-awarded the prestigious R.W. Wood prize from the Optical Society of America for his seminal work in optics. His contribution was foundational in the field of confocal microscopy, which allows engineers and biologists to produce optical sections through 3D objects such as semiconductor circuits, living tissues, or a single cell. Dr. Davidovits earned his doctorate, masters, and undergraduate degrees from Columbia University. Prior to his appointment at Boston College, he was a faculty member at Yale University. He has published more than 150 papers in physical chemistry and is a Fellow of the American Physical Society and of the American Association for Advancement of Science. The second edition of Physics in Biology and Medicine received the Alpha Sigma Nu Book Award in the Discipline of the Natural Sciences.

A PERFECT FIT TO COURSES IN PHYSICS AND BIOPHYSICS

Physics in Biology and Medicine, Fourth Edition covers topics in physics as they apply to the life sciences, specifically medicine, physiology, nursing, and other applied health fields. The text provides clear descriptions of medical devices and techniques such as MRI, CAT scan, and cochlear implant.

Physics in Biology and Medicine, Fourth Edition is a concise introductory paperback that surveys and relates basic physics to living systems. It discusses biological systems that can be analyzed quantitatively, and shows how advances in the life sciences have been aided by the knowledge of physical and engineering analysis techniques.

  • Provides practical techniques for applying knowledge of physics to the study of living systems
  • Presents material in a straightforward manner requiring very little background in physics or biology
  • Includes many figures, examples, illustrative problems, and appendices which provide convenient access to the most important concepts of mechanics, electricity, and optics
  • An Instructor Solutions Manual is available at textbooks.elsevier.com
  • Updated to include current research topics, including nanoscience, basal metabolism, laser imaging, and atomic force microscopy
