520    This is an ideal text for an introduction to biomedical 
       engineering. The book presents the basic science knowledge
       used by biomedical engineers at a level accessible to all 
       students and illustrates the first steps in applying this 
       knowledge to solve problems in human medicine. Biomedical 
       engineering now encompasses a range of fields of 
       specialization including bioinstrumentation, bioimaging, 
       biomechanics, biomaterials, and biomolecular engineering. 
       This introduction to bioengineering assembles foundational
       resources from molecular and cellular biology and 
       physiology and relates them to various sub-specialties of 
       biomedical engineering. The first two parts of the book 
       present basic information in molecular/cellular biology 
       and human physiology; quantitative concepts are stressed 
       in these sections. Comprehension of these basic life 
       science principles provides the context in which 
       biomedical engineers interact. The third part of the book 
       introduces the sub-specialties in biomedical engineering, 
       and emphasizes - through examples and profiles of people 
       in the field - the types of problems biomedical engineers 
       solve. -- Product Description.
