Noninvasive Instrumentation and Measurement in Medical Diagnosis – Robert B. Northrop – 1st Edition


The non-invasive medical diagnosis (NIMD) is as old as the medical practice itself. From the first observations of healers on smells, skin color and sounds of respiration to the richness of today’s technologies, the basic concepts remain the same and maintain the role of the NIMD essential for medical care effective.

Non-invasive instrumentation and measurement in medical diagnosis is the first book dedicated to NIMD tools and techniques. With emerging technologies along with traditional instruments, he describes how these tools and non-invasive techniques work and explores developments that will make the NIMD simpler, more reliable, less expensive and risk-free. Much of the material is descriptive, but the author includes a rigorous mathematical analysis when appropriate. The treatment is easily accessible for readers with backgrounds in basic algebra and ordinary differential equations, basic circuit theory and concepts such as frequency response and transient response of linear systems.

The rapid evolution of biomedical instrumentation has made books that are only five years old outdated. Whether it is used for a higher level biomedical engineering class or as a reference for medical students, health professionals, physicists or physiologists, non-invasive instrumentation and measurement in medical diagnosis stands out for presenting the state of the art and the science of NIMD.
