CRC Press Focus Series in Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering
Series Editors: Magdalena S. Stoeva and Tae-Suk Suh
Aims and Scope
The CRC Press Focus Series in Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering is a sub-series of the CRC Press Series in Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering; a leading international book series and the official book series of the International Organization for Medical Physics (IOMP).
Titles in this sub-series explore hot topics targeting the applications of physical sciences, engineering, and mathematics in medicine and clinical research. They are available very quickly as eBooks and print-on-demand hardbacks, meeting the need for up-to-date texts in this rapidly developing field. More information on our Focus Publishing Program is available here: https://www.crcpress.com/go/focus
The CRC Press Focus Series in Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering is seeking new authors. If you are interested in writing or editing a book for the series, we would be delighted to hear from you. Please contact Rebecca Davies, Editor for Physics books, at Rebecca.Davies@tandf.co.uk, or contact any of the Series Editors.
