This one credit full year course is an introduction to
experimental techniques covering a range of topics in
Biomedical Engineering, including:
to give hands-on experience with engineering tools used to study
quantitative life sciences problems. Laboratories are designed to give
familiarity with instrumentation and procedures for bioengineering
research, including data acquisition, analysis and interpretation. This
course is intended for junior biomedical engineering students.
- biosignals: instrumentation, signal processing, ECG, nerve & muscle
excitation, control systems
- mass transfer: dialysis, respiratory system, digestion
- medical imaging: ionizing radiation, gamma camera, nuclear
magnetic resonance, ultrasound, image processing
Handouts and web page reading will be assigned. Preparatory materials and
laboratory procedures are available on the web page. Please read these
materials in preparation for lab.
Labs and Reports
Experiments will be conducted in groups. Note, many of these labs involve
physiologic measurements and will not always give clean "textbook" results.
It is valuable to process your data at you go in order to verify that you
are making your measurements properly.
Lab reports will be written separately. Grading for the course will be
based primarily on lab reports but also on lab performance. Lab reports
will be due one week from the final session for that particular lab. For
half of the labs, full Lab reports will be required and will be due one
week from the final session for that particular lab. For the other labs,
an abbreviated report will be required, answering a few questions and
supplying some key results. Late reports will be penalized.
The preferred method of submitting your lab reports is using the ClassesV2 web server. In ClassesV2,
go to your "Dropbox" and "add" a file. Upload a single file containing all
text and graphs. Please use a filename containing both your name and the
name of the lab.
If you submit a hardcopy, please staple or clip together firmly all pages
that you hand in, including printouts, if any.
Please use the format described below:
