Workbook of Medical Devices, Engineering and Technology


This workbook provides exercises and corresponding solutions to several subjects in medical technology and engineering. Thereby the reader can learn how to solve problems in this field by means of mathematical formulas and calculations. In order to provide a better understanding, the physical background for the solutions is shortly explained.

The workbook covers excercises on the following topics:

•Interaction of X-rays with matter

•X-ray tubes

•X-ray dosimetry

•X-ray statistics

•Ultrasound waves

•Ultrasound scanner

•Dipole fields in electrocardiography

•Electrocardiography instrumentation

•Interaction of laser light with matter

•Application of laser radiation

•Pulse oxymetry

•High-frequency surgery

•Computed radiography (CR)

•Image reconstruction in computed tomography

•CT scanner

•Nuclear magnetic resonance and nuclear magnetic resonance imaging

•Nuclear medical imaging, radionuclides and instrumentation

•Binary classification and Receiver operator characteristic curves

•Modulation transfer function in imaging

•Detective quantum efficiency


Prof. Dr. Dr. habil Michael Thoms was born in 1963 in Eckernförde, Germany, studied physics and received his Ph. D. at the University of Heidelberg in 1991. In 1998 he habilitated in material science at the University of Erlangen and is at present Professor at both the University of Ansbach and the University of Erlangen-Nürnberg, giving lectures in physics and medical technology.

Besides his academic career, he worked in industry on the research and development of medical devices. For a long time he was in charge as a director of research and development. He did several inventions mainly in the field of medical diagnostics and medical devices and holds several patents.
