BASICS OF ULTRASONOGRAPHY

Ultrasound is a sound wave with frequencies higher than the upper audible limit of human hearing. This limit varies from person to person and is approximately 20 kilohertz (20,000 hertz) in healthy, young adults. Ultrasound devices operate with frequencies from 20 kHz up to several gigahertz. Medical Sonography (Ultrasonography) is an ultrasound-based diagnostic medical imaging technique used to visualize muscles, tendons, and many internal organs, to capture their size, structure and any pathological lesions with real time tomographic images. Conventional ultrasound displays the images in thin, flat sections of the body. Advancements in ultrasound technology include three-dimensional (3-D) ultrasound that formats the sound wave data into 3-D images.

How Does It Function?

Fitness trackers..Do they really track?

Most often, people use Fitness trackers for keeping track of their fitness activity, set achievable goals and to motivate themselves. Fitness trackers are mostly wearable electronics that measure/track your activity such as steps taken, distance walked, calorie consumption and even heart rate in some cases. Most fitness trackers have an accelerometer that helps in tracking our activity. Some fitness trackers may also have altimeter, music player and many other features. So, how does the fitness tracker do it?

Lecture Notes on Biomedical Instrumentation and Design

Course Objectives:

 

Students will be able to apply the principles of electronic circuits and devices to the use and design of instrumentation in the biomedical area. They will have gained a basic knowledge of the operating principles of electrical and other transducers, analog and digital instrumentation, applied signal acquisition and processing, electrical safety in the medical environment, electrical properties of nerve and muscle physiology; and instrumentation used in cardiopulmonary, neurological, surgical, and rehabilitation areas of medicine.

 

Lecture 1 – Introduction

 

Lecture 2 – Sensor Models

 

IamBiomed: Biomedical Engineering Notes Website


 


 

Recently, I came across a effort by Biomedical Engineering students, they are IIIrd yr students in biomedical from watumull institute,Worli,Mumbai. Varun Venkatesh and his friend Aditya ekawade alongwith Prerak Dalal have designed the whole website, I dont know what syllabus they follow but they have indexed Biomedical Engineering notes which is really great.
