Static Characteristics of Biomedical Instruments

Representation of high accuracy and low precision.

To enable purchasers to compare commercially available instruments and evaluate new instrument designs, quantitative criteria for the performance of instruments are needed. These criteria must clearly specify how well an instrument measures the desired input and how much the output depends on interfering and modifying inputs. Characteristics of instrument performance are usually subdivided into two classes on the basis of the frequency of the input signals.
Static characteristics describe the performance of instruments for dc or very low frequency inputs. The properties of the output for a wide range of constant inputs demonstrate the quality of the measurement, including nonlinear and statistical effects. Some sensors and instruments, such as piezoelectric devices, respond only to time-varying inputs and have no static characteristics.

National workshop On Biostatistics in IITKGP,8-10 Sept 2011


School of Medical Science and Technology is organizing National Workshop on Biostatistics: Applications of Computational Statistics in Medicine & Biology (ACSMB – 2011) between September 08-10, 2011 as a part of Diamond Jubilee Celebrations of Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur. This workshop will provide an introduction to computational statistics, with special emphasis on statistical methods and software for addressing high-dimensional inference problems that arise in present biological and medical research. ACSMB-2011 is mainly designed to train researchers, young faculty and post graduates in applying various statistical methods, using softwares and databases to effectively handle clinical and biological data.

We have seen generally that student at undergraduate level are not able to associate their study skills with paper writing capabilities, So I thought that it would be right to have a tutorial about how to extract a paper from regular study material

It could be an IEEE paper or paper being presented at any other level

what are the basic fundamental skills required for writing a paper

A major goal of this tutorial is the development of effective technical writing skills. To help you become an accomplished writer, you will prepare several research papers based upon the studies completed in lab.
