Advances in Biomedical Engineering is designed to present work of significance ranging from research to clinical and technological applications. The topics which are treated in this volume and other topics that will form the subsequent volumes of the series are selected on the basis of their relevance to more than one discipline and will have arisen in general as a result of inter- or multi-disciplinary effort.
This book comprises four chapters, with the first focusing on the biomedical applications of ultrasound. It tackles such topics as modes of action of ultrasound on living cells and tissues, changes in cell and tissue due to ultrasound, and therapeutic applications of high-intensity ultrasound. The following chapters then focus on separation of neuronal activity by waveform analysis; biomechanical characteristics of bone; and structural and mechanical aspects of connective tissue.
This book will be of interest to practitioners in the fields of biological engineering, physiology, and computer science.
