Introduction to Biomedical Engineering is a comprehensive survey text for biomedical engineering courses. It is the most widely adopted text across the BME course spectrum, valued by instructors and students alike for its authority, clarity and encyclopedic coverage in a single volume.
Biomedical engineers need to understand the wide range of topics that are covered in this text, including basic mathematical modeling; anatomy and physiology; electrical engineering, signal processing and instrumentation; biomechanics; biomaterials science and tissue engineering; and medical and engineering ethics.
Enderle and Bronzino tackle these core topics at a level appropriate for senior undergraduate students and graduate students who are majoring in BME, or studying it as a combined course with a related engineering, biology or life science, or medical/pre-medical course.
NEW: Each chapter in the 3rd Edition is revised and updated, with new chapters and materials on compartmental analysis, biochemical engineering, transport phenomena, physiological modeling and tissue engineering. Chapters on peripheral topics have been removed and made avaialblw online, including optics and computational cell biology
NEW: many new worked examples within chapters
NEW: more end of chapter exercises, homework problems
NEW: image files from the text available in PowerPoint format for adopting instructors
Readers benefit from the experience and expertise of two of the most internationally renowned BME educators
Instructors benefit from a comprehensive teaching package including a fully worked solutions manual
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. Joseph Bronzino is one of the most renowned biomedical engineers in the world. He is a former president of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology, and well-known educator. He is editor-in-chief of the Biomedical Engineering Handbook from CRC Press, and is currently editor of the Academic Press Series in Biomedical Engineering. He is the Vernon Roosa Professor of Applied Science at Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut.
