Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book is ideal for those who want to become concise and fast informed about a special medical technology or would like to deepen their up-to-date knowledge about technological topics: in a total of 74 chapters almost the whole actual technology used in medicine for diagnostics or therapeutics from large equipment to small modern tools is presented in combination with informative tables and figures. Each chapter starts with a summary … and closes with references for further individual studies.” (Chrístian Kollmann, Ultraschall in der Medizin, Vol. 33, 2012)
