Sensors are the eyes, ears, and more, of the modern engineered product or system—including the living human organism. This authoritative reference work, part of Momentum Press’s new Sensors Technology Series, edited by Joe Watson, will offer a comprehensive review of biomedical sensors and their associated instrumentation systems now commonly used in modern medicine. Readers will find invaluable data and guidance on a wide variety of sensors used in biomedical applications, from fluid flow sensors, to ultrasound sensors, to chemical analysis sensors. New developments in biomaterials-based sensors that mimic natural biosystems will be covered as well, and the reader will find ample references throughout for further reading and research. Biomedical engineers, medical physicists, electrical engineers, and medical professionals will find state-of-the-art information on:

  • Temperature sensors
  • Flow sensors for gases and liquids
  • Ultrasound sensors and chemical sensors for biomedical use
  • Sensors for both ionizing and nonionizing radiation
  • New developments in enzyme-based sensors, immune sensors, and microorganism-based sensors
