Applications of Big Data in Healthcare: Theory and Practice begins with the basics of Big Data analysis and introduces the tools, processes and procedures associated with Big Data analytics. The book unites healthcare with Big Data analysis and uses the advantages of the latter to solve the problems faced by the former. The authors present the challenges faced by the healthcare industry, including capturing, storing, searching, sharing and analyzing data. This book illustrates the challenges in the applications of Big Data and suggests ways to overcome them, with a primary emphasis on data repositories, challenges, and concepts for data scientists, engineers and clinicians. The applications of Big Data have grown tremendously within the past few years and its growth can not only be attributed to its competence to handle large data streams but also to its abilities to find insights from complex, noisy, heterogeneous, longitudinal and voluminous data. The main objectives of Big Data in the healthcare sector is to come up with ways to provide personalized healthcare to patients by taking into account the enormous amounts of already existing data.
Godbey's Biotechnology and Its Applications is written for the student with little to no background in college level biology. The goal of the book is to introduce the student to the world of biotechnology in a way that runs deeper than a mere survey. The book is divided into three units. In the first, basic science is covered to introduce the reader to the cell, how it behaves, and what it is made of. The second unit demonstrates the biotechnological application of scientific principles in the laboratory while the third unit of the book presents biotechnologies in the real world. Examples include recombinant proteins that are available to millions of patients, plants that have been engineered to produce food that has been made available to people around the world, and regenerative medicine that may someday allow patients to receive organs that have been grown from their own cells. The second edition has been updated and expanded with the most current information available, and new chapters have been added on such topics as gene editing, bioremediation, vaccines and immunotherapy, and processing and manufacturing, resulting in a modern, robust, yet highly readable applications-oriented introduction to biotechnology.
This book is a comprehensive guide to the tissue engineering in case of end-stage diseases for the vital organs of the body. The title not only encompasses an introduction to the basic concepts of embryology, but also discusses in detail about the potential and impact of the field of stem cells and tissue engineering to the future world of medicine.
This will be a comprehensive, major revision of a previous work detailing and inclusive of promising and effective neuroengineering techniques and technologies. This includes neuromodulaiton and neural augmentation. It's aim is to provide the definitive reference on the basic science, fundamental technologies, clinical application and efficacy of the spectrum of neuroengineering. It will also be intended to provide a systematic mulitidisciplinry integrated reference covering important facets of the rapidly advancing field of neuroengineering.
This will be a comprehensive primary text for emerging courses enttled physiology for engineers or systems physiology.. This book allows the reader to understand the ways in which human beings adapt to a changing external environment, so they can thrive. Topics are covered in detail from a systems approach, which allows for the creation of mathematical models of homeostasis from block diagrams. Each chapter starts with one or more brief pathophysiologic episodes that illustrates the loss of homeostatic
This book is a comprehensive overview of the latest state-of-the-art research on stem cell mechanics. The focus of this work deals with an in-depth look at the mechanical forces that play on the external development of stem cells within various systems. It incorporates details in enabling engineering technologies and scientific findings in terms of stem cell self-renewal, differentiation, and mechanotransduction both in vitro and in vivo.
This is an innovative book detailing the many challenges of bringing nanomedicines from the bench to the market. Through conversation, stories, descriptions, and personal accounts with leading entrepreneurs who have strived and overcome many of these barriers, readers are given a detailed outline of how nanomedicine can create future realistic solutions in medicine and health. The book takes a strong how and why approach.
Utilizing world class researchers on a wide international scale, this book is a comprehensive reference for practical insight into the selection and optimization of biosensors. It provides in detail the current state of knowledge on nano-inspired biosensors for healthcare applications for several analyses important for human well-being as well as detecting several chronic diseases. It highlights the numerous and various methodologies available, and puts into perspective the materials needed to detect a number of debilitating diseases and conditions.
Melding basic and clinical science, this reference provides a comprehensive overview of the roles that biophysics, photochemistry, and computational modeling play in the biomedical applications of fluorescence spectroscopy and imaging. Penned by pioneering researchers, the Handbook of Biomedical Fluorescence discusses fundamental aspects of fluorescence generation in organic molecules within tissue, theoretical and experimental views of how light propagation in tissue can be used to interpret fluorescence signals, endogenous and exogenous fluorescence agents in medical or basic research studies, and radiation transport, diffusion theory, and the Monte Carlo method.
