Emerging Medical Technologies

The book provides an overview of new technologies in medicine. It defines each technology and gives an account of its history, and the principles, technical problems, and applications as well as controversies involved.

Biomedical science and medical technologies are developing at such a fast pace that it is hard to follow even for specialists. In addition, they have become more and more complex. This book provides readers with a basic understanding of these technologies and helps them to keep up with new developments. The value of the book is that it is comprehensive and yet concise, which makes the learning process fast and easy.
