Over the last century, medicine has come out of the 'black bag' and emerged as one of the most dynamic and advanced fields of development in science and technology. Today, biomedical engineering plays a critical role in patient diagnosis, care, and rehabilitation. As such, the field encompasses a wide range of disciplines, from biology and physiology to material science and nanotechnology. Reflecting the enormous growth and change in biomedical engineering during the infancy of the 21st century, "The Biomedical Engineering Handbook" enters its third edition as a set of three carefully focused and conveniently organized books.Reviewing applications at the leading edge of modern biomedical engineering, "Tissue Engineering and Artificial Organs" explores transport phenomena, biomimetics systems, biotechnology, prostheses, artificial organs, and ethical issues. This book features approximately 90 per cent new material in the tissue engineering section, integrates coverage of life sciences with a new section on molecular biology, and includes a new section on bionanotechnology. Prominent leaders from around the world share their expertise in their respective fields with many new and updated chapters. New technologies and methods spawned by biomedical engineering have the potential to improve the quality of life for everyone, and "Tissue Engineering and Artificial Organs" sheds light on the tools that will enable these advances.
