Synopsis:

Aim of the course is to introduce students into the area of biomedical engineering and informatics. It is focused on various issues starting from basic cybernetic approaches to research and modelling of living organisms, over measurement and processing of biological signals, up to medical devices and health care information systems. During laboratory exercises the students acquire basic experience and skills with application of medical devices, imaging systems, biomedical informatics and processing of biomedical data and signals.

Requirements:

The condition is a credit delivery and successful presentation of the results of independent work. Actual requirements and information on the subject can be found at:http://cw.felk.cvut.cz/doku.php/courses/a0b33bmi/start
