Illustrations are provided throughout, as are chapter-end review to test students' grasp of concepts.
This second edition incorporates detailed explanations, supported with illustrated examples and improved figures, ionic action of silver-silver chloride electrode, and isolation amplifiers. It also includes mathematical treatment of ultrasonic transit time flowmeters. A method to find the approximate axis of heart and image reconstruction in a CT scan is explained. The section on MRI has been simplified for better understanding, and a new section on Positron Emission Tomography (PET), has been introduced.
