520 This textbook introduces students not pursuing degrees in
science or engineering to the remarkable new applications
of technology now available to physicians and their
patients and discusses how these technologies are evolving
to permit new treatments and procedures. The book also
elucidates the societal and ethical impacts of advances in
medical technology, such as extending life and end of life
decisions, the role of genetic testing, confidentiality,
costs of health care delivery, scrutiny of scientific
claims, and provides background on the engineering
approach in healthcare and the scientific method as a
guiding principle. This concise, highly relevant text
enables faculty to offer a substantive course for students
from non-scientific backgrounds that will empower them to
make more informed decisions about their healthcare by
significantly enhancing their understanding of these
