Numerous research projects that professionals are engaged in require the use of above average mathematical skills and concepts. However, many of these people lack academic training in mathematics or have neither the time or inclination to systematically study this area. To meet their needs, a series of guidebooks or texts is now available. This particular guidebook describes how mathematics is used as a tool in medicine. Using examples to illustrate important concepts, leading scholars cover a number of topics, including epidemiology, clinical measurement, and quantitative analysis of circulation and respiration. Specific applications of the mathematical methods described are also explored as they relate to clinical specialties such as oncology, radiology, imaging, cardiology, lung fuction, anaesthesia, endocrinology, and kidney function. This ready reference information source will help professionals engaged in the study of medicine develop an understanding of mathematical ideas and master the techniques they require in the applications oriented, research environments in which they work.
