Bioengineering Approaches to Cancer Diagnosis and Treatment is written for an audience of senior undergraduate students and graduate students in mechanical, electrical and biomedical engineering fields and other professionals in medicine. It is ideally structured for teaching and for those who are working in cancer bioengineering or interdisciplinary projects. The book's authors bring a unique perspective from their expertise in immunology, nanobiomaterials and heat transfer. Topical coverage includes an introduction to the fundamentals of bioengineering and engineering approaches for cancer diagnosis, cancer treatment via case studies, and sections on imaging, immunotherapy, cell therapy, drug delivery, ultrasound and microfluidics in cancer treatment.
- Provides fully supported case studies relating to cancer diagnosis and therapy
- Pairs the basic fundamentals of engineering and biomedical engineering and applies them to the diagnosis of cancer
