"The new edition of this manual shows the state of the art of measures, instrumentation, and sensors used in the field of biomedical engineering. It describes the use of instrumentation and techniques for performing underlying practical measures required particularly for medical sciences, explaining in detail the sensors that are used as well as the techniques, hardware, and software associated. ... The second edition certainly offers the most complete source of reference."
-Centro Nazionale Edilizia e Tecnica Ospedaliera (CNETO)'s Progettare per la Sanita, October 2015
"... a superb and well treated collection of engineering topics delving in-depth in the essential MEASUREMENT activity of almost any variable there is."
-Max E. Valentinuzzi, Institute Biomed Engineering-University Buenos Aires, Argentina
"... Even though different experts in their respective fields wrote the chapters; they are well-written and clear demonstrating the expert editing done by Professors Webster and Eren. The wide base of experts drawn together for this book demonstrates the broad coverage of this book by leading experts in the field of instrumentation.
-Michael R. Neuman, Michigan Technological University, Houghton, USA
"This is a very interesting, and moreover incredibly thorough, treatment of all aspects relating to sensors and measurements. ... The material presented on soft sensors was very much a representation of the state-of-the-art whilst also being understandable and a good introduction to the subject."
-Alex Casson, University of Manchester, UK
