Biomedical imaging focuses on the theoretical and practical issues related to machine vision, image processing and analysis, and signal processing associated with such medical applications as ultrasound, optics, magnetic resonance, and auto radiographic imaging. The concentration in biomedical devices and imaging is for those individuals interested in careers in medical imaging, medical device development, and clinical engineering. The concentration covers the fundamentals of modern imaging methodologies, covering aspects of light imaging, ultrasound imaging, and volumetric and functional imaging systems, and the principles of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Upon graduation, students will be able to: understand the multi-disciplinary background and limitations of current and emerging instrumentation, imaging and internet technologies used in clinical, pharmaceutical and research environments; Select and evaluate sensors and imaging modalities for specific biomedical research, diagnostic and the agnostic applications; Analyze the performance of different systems including microscopically and medical imaging methodologies in terms of safety, resolution and the trade-offs important for a given application; Optimize digital acquisition, enhancement, visualization and analysis of signals from biomedical instruments in multi dimensions; Understand the impact of compliance with the standards and guidelines of regulatory agencies such as FDA on the design and application of devices in clinical practice and knowledge of basic quality assurance tools.
