"Fully revised since its original publication, this reference illuminates the equipment, devices, and techniques used in modern medicine to diagnose, treat, and monitor human illlness. With topics ranging from basic procedures like blood pressure measurements to cutting-edge imaging equipment, biological tests, and genetic engineering, the book is organized to navigate smoothly from simple procedures and concepts to more sophisticated and complex ones. Each section contains a description of the technique, its technical considerations, and its use according to its applications and relevant body system"--Provided by publisher.
