About this book

In the past few years Biomedical Engineering has received a great deal of attention as one of the emerging technologies in the last decade and for years to come, as witnessed by the many books, conferences, and their proceedings. Media attention, due to the applications-oriented advances in Biomedical Engineering, has also increased. Much of the excitement comes from the fact that technology is rapidly changing and new technological adventures become available and feasible every day. For many years the physical sciences contributed to medicine in the form of expertise in radiology and slow but steady contributions to other more diverse fields, such as computers in surgery and diagnosis, neurology, cardiology, vision and visual prosthesis, audition and hearing aids, artificial limbs, biomechanics, and biomaterials. The list goes on. It is therefore hard for a person unfamiliar with a subject to separate the substance from the hype. Many of the applications of Biomedical Engineering are rather complex and difficult to understand even by the not so novice in the field. Much of the hardware and software tools available are either too simplistic to be useful or too complicated to be understood and applied. In addition, the lack of a common language between engineers and computer scientists and their counterparts in the medical profession, sometimes becomes a barrier to progress.

Reviews

`The book....fills a void in available textbooks. It is ideally suited for a college senior or first year graduate course in bioengineering, physiology or biophysics. I recommend it.'
James C. Lin, Professor of Bioengineering, University of Illinois at Chicago

`The new book....is a delight to read. It is well organized, packed with useful analytical tools, and replete with relevant biomedical examples. Devasahayam is an articulate author who has taken pains to ensure that the material will be accessible to those with engineering as well as biological backgrounds. The book is highly recommended.'
Gerald H. Pollack, Professor of Bioengineering, University of Washington

`This book by Suresh R. Devasahayam is a wonderful introduction to signal processing and system modeling for students who are either pursuing or wished they had pursued a degree in biomedical engineering. The basic concepts of signal processing and system modeling are clearly explained and are elucidated with a number of exercises and applications.'
Carlo De Luca, Director Neuromuscular Research Center, Boston University
