Biomedical Engineering can be seen as a mix of Medicine, Engineering and Science. In fact, this is a natural
connection, as the most complicated engineering masterpiece is the human body. And it is exactly to help our
“body machine” that Biomedical Engineering has its niche. This book brings the state-of-the-art of some of the
most important current research related to Biomedical Engineering. I am very honored to be editing such a
valuable book, which has contributions of a selected group of researchers describing the best of their work.
Through its 36 chapters, the reader will have access to works related to ECG, image processing, sensors,
artificial intelligence, and several other exciting fields.
