Description
Sometimes your body needs help getting better from an injury or illness. Medical technology can help find out what is wrong as well as cure what ails us. Today, tiny video cameras can be inserted into the body to see what's there - and if someone loses a finger, a surgeon can reattach it using microsurgery under a powerful microscope. This fascinating guide to medical technology explores how robots are helping surgeons to perform operations, vaccines prevent deaths from disease, and various gadgets can help us check our diet and fitness levels. Features include funny and interesting illustrations; real-world science examples; side panels to tackle complex subject matter in a fun and relevant way; detailed glossary and more.
