Under the direction of John Enderle, Susan Blanchard and Joe Bronzino, leaders in the field have contributed chapters on the most relevant subjects for biomedical engineering students. These chapters coincide with courses offered in all biomedical engineering programs so that it can be used at different levels for a variety of courses of this evolving field.
Introduction to Biomedical Engineering, Second Edition provides a historical perspective of the major developments in the biomedical field. Also contained within are the fundamental principles underlying biomedical engineering design, analysis, and modeling procedures. The numerous examples, drill problems and exercises are used to reinforce concepts and develop problem-solving skills making this book an invaluable tool for all biomedical students and engineers.
New to this edition: Computational Biology, Medical Imaging, Genomics and Bioinformatics.

"...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
John Enderle is among the best known biomedical engineers in the world. He is Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE EMB Magazine (Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, the key electrical systems-oriented BME society). An electrical engineer by training, he is a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), a past-president of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, and a Fellow of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE). He is also an ABET program evaluator for bioengineering programs and a member of the American Society for Engineering Education.
