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 
       technological advancements.
