MRI is a fascinating imaging technology used to visualize the internal structures of the body. However, acquisition speed still remains a challenge especially for patients who are anxious, can’t keep still or have limited breath hold capacity. These challenges can be solved with Compressed Sensing (CS) which helps us in decreasing the acquisition times without sacrificing image quality.
Conventionally, the compression of images is performed after the acquisition of the entire image. This is done to reduce data storage and facilitate transfer of such data. The idea behind CS is to compress and acquire only the most important coefficients of the signal during the acquisition.

The Bioengineering program at CMC-Vellore is unique in India in offering Postgraduate engineering education in a medical institution. It imparts training in engineering analysis, design and prototyping within a multi- faceted medical institution. Its aim is to bring some of the best global practices in interdisciplinary biomedical engineering R&D to address healthcare problems inIndia. Bioengineering at CMC
Bioengineering Involves basic science and applied research in medical instrumentation, prostheses, mathematical analysis of physiological processes, biomechanics of musculoskeletal
systems, rehabilitation engineering etc. Bioengineering has engineering at its core, and includes the disciplines of physics, mechanics, electronics, and computational methods applied to
physiology and medicine. The Department
The Bioengineering department at CMC-Vellore works closely with several other departments in CMC and significant work has been in Physiological Measurements, Prostheses and Assistive Devices, Electrodiagnostics, Neuorehabilitation technology etc. The department has electronics and mechanical fabrication and testing labs as well as embedded and GUI software development facilities. Devices developed in the department are in use in clinical departments and research labs in CMC and other institutions. The Bioengineering department at
CMC is a participant in a three institution M.Tech. (Clinical Engineering) and Ph.D. (Medical Devices) initiative, jointly run by IIT-Madras, SCTIMST-Trivandrum and CMC-Vellore. The
admissions for those programmes are advertised separately.
