"...this is certainly the most comprehensive textbook of its kind, and is recommended not only for undergraduate BME students but also for BME engineers in the industry or at the graduate level in academia, as a reference book for a quick dive into new topics, or for an up-to-date survey of recent developments in this field." Amit Gefen, BioMedical Engineering "Provides the most thorough review of concepts from biomaterials and tissue engineering to bioinstrumentation and medical imaging." Armando Perraioli, Italy, in the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Magazine
