Dr. Robert Splinter is the Senior Scientist of Technology Development at the Spectranetics Corporation. He is also an Adjunct Assistant Professor in the Department of Physics and Optical Science at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.
The handbook includes hundreds of diagrams, images and tables, making it a useful tool for both medical physicists/engineers and other medical/biology specialists ... includes materials that are rarely combined together, which strengthens its interdisciplinary approach. -Physics in Medicine and Biology, 55 (2010) My deep impression is this is an excellent work by a highly competent team. The book chapters follow logically from the properties of the cell membrane through sensors and electroreception, biomechanics and fluid dynamics to the recording of bioelectrical signals, bioelectric impedence analysis, x-ray and computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, nuclear medicine, ultrasonic and thermographic imaging ... keep this book close at hand and do not hesitate to use it frequently. -BioMedical Engineering OnLine, 2010
