This classic textbook has been used in more than 20 countries by advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate students in biophysics, medical physics, physiology, neuroscience, and biomedical engineering. It links the gap between an introductory physics course and the application of physics to the life and biomedical sciences.

Comprehensively revised and updated, Intermediate Physics for Medicine and Biology, 5th Edition, (PDF) includes new developments at the interface between physics and biomedicine. New coverage includes cyclotrons, color vision, x-ray crystallography, photodynamic therapy, the electron microscope, cochlear implants, nanomedicine, deep brain stimulation, and other topics highlighted in the National Research Council report BIO2010. As with the prior edition, the first half of the text is mainly biological physics, emphasizing the use of ideas from physics to understand physiology and biology, and the second half is primarily medical physics, explaining the use of physics in medicine for diagnosis (mainly imaging) and therapy.

Previous courses in physics and in calculus are assumed. Intermediate Physics for Medicine and Biology 5e is also perfect for self-study and as a reference for workers in medical and biological research. More than 850 problems test and improve the student’s understanding and provide additional biological examples. A solutions manual is available to tutors. Every chapter has an extensive list of references.

NOTE: The product only includes the ebook, Intermediate Physics for Medicine and Biology, 5th Edition in PDF. No access codes are included.
