Biomedical Engineering

             Biomedical engineering (BME) or medical technology is the application of technical principles and design concepts in medicine and biology for health purposes (eg diagnostic or therapeutic). This area aims to bridge the gap between engineering and medicine by combining design and problem solving skills in medical technology to improve health service delivery, including diagnosis, monitoring and therapy. The scope of biomedical engineers also includes management of modern medical devices in hospitals according to relevant industry standards. This includes recommendations for devices, purchasing, routine testing and preventive maintenance, a role also referred to as a biomedical device technician (BMET) or as a clinical technique. Recently, biomedical technology has developed into a separate study compared to many other technical fields. Such developments are often seen as the transition of new fields from interdisciplinary specialization between established fields to the changing fields themselves. Most of the work in biomedical engineering consists of research and development, covering a variety of sub-fields (see below). Leading applications in biomedical engineering include the development of biocompatible prostheses, various diagnostic and therapeutic medical devices ranging from clinical devices to micro implants, general imaging devices such as MRI and EKG / EKG, tissue regeneration, medicine and therapeutic biology.
