“Timely. Comprehensive. Interesting. Readable. Beneficial as a textbook and/or reference. Relevant. Highly recommended; it is this reviewer’s opinion that this ebook is useful as a reference and textbook. It could easily serve the purpose as a primer for an undergraduate biomedical engineering elective course; followed by; if possible; an objective in database development. The text is highly pertinent to engineers working in medicine; and is therefore highly recommended.” — Paul. H. King; Ph.D.; P.E; Vanderbilt University; IEEE Pulse
