The recent development in the Biomedical Diagnostic Instrumentation, therapy and rehabilitation and its diffusion in many areas of clinical practice, pose a significant challenge to bioengineering teachers called to prepare figures professionals able to operate effectively in development, design, production and technical management of biomedical equipment. The multiplicity and variety of arguments do not allow being treated with the necessary deepening in a single course. For this reason, during the course, we will address the main biomedical instrumentation systems for the acquisition of some physiological signals and for diagnosis by images.
Theoretical course: fundamentals of modern systems for biomedical measurements, knowledge necessary to understand the functioning of the diagnostic biomedical instrumentation, acquisition tools; analysis and management of bioimaging.
The course will examine some types of instrumentation for the acquisition of biomedical signals with particular reference to imaging diagnostic equipment and the processing of biomedical data. Describes operational principles, design issues, state of the art, and future prospects for further development, taking into account the problems of interaction with the human body and patient safety.
It is assumed that the student knows the differential equations, has a good physical-chemical basis, has followed a course in electrical and electronic circuits, an introductory course in physiology or modeling of physiological systems.
The teaching consists in traditional lectures (48 hours),
Architecture and performance of a biomedical measurements system. Characteristics of the main biomedical signals. Ultrasonic instrumentation: A-mode/ B-mode/ M-mode ultrasound, Doppler flow meters. Optical microscopy, fluorescence and confocal microscopy. Biomedical instrumentation: system radiography (X-ray, CT scan), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), (functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI), EEG)).
All slides used during lessons and other teaching materials will be available on aula@web. The books listed below are strongly suggested as supporting texts to complete the student's preparation, but students can also use other university level texts as long as they are published in the last 5 years.
