STTP on Biomedical Signal Processing during 30th March- 3rd April, 2015







About the Workshop:

Biomedical Instrumentation (BMI) is all about health care. As the world's population grows the need for health care increases. In recent years, progress in medical care has been very rapid. Major reason for this progress has been the application of engineering principles for biomedical use. The most visible contribution of BMI to clinical practice involves instrumentation for diagnosis, therapy and rehabilitation. Today we find tremendous advancement in the field of BMI in terms of diagnostic, therapeutic and rehabilitation like ECG, EMG, EEG, MRI, CT and PET SCAN, Defibrillator, Pacemaker, Hearing Aids etc. Biomedical signals are observations of physiological activities of organisms, ranging from gene and protein sequences, to neural and cardiac rhythms, to tissue and organ images. Biomedical signal processing aims at extracting significant information from biomedical signals. With the aid of biomedical signal processing, biologists can discover new biology and physicians can monitor distinct illnesses.
Biomedical signal processing is of importance not only to physiologist conducting research and the clinician treating patients but also to the biomedical engineer who is required to process and interpret the physiological signals by designing systems and algorithms for their manipulations. It is the basis of how engineering aids the field of medicine. Medicine is an empirical field. Doctors understand medicine based on what they know to be true through their study and practice. Engineers, on the other hand, focus on trying to fully understand a particular system.

The objectives of the workshop are:

  • Study the various aspects of Biomedical Signal Processing and Analysis of ECG, EMG, & EEG Signal processing.
  •  Study the various aspects of Imaging Techniques namely X-ray, MRI, Ultrasound, CT scan, PET Scan etc. and their image processing.
  •  Develop new methods of signal processing that extract useful information from physiological signals.
  •  To study the recent trends in research areas in the Biomedical Signal Processing
  •  Interaction with experts in the area of Biomedical signal Processing.
  •  Encourage interaction between the research scholars from various institutes.
  • Bridge the gaps between academic and medical research.
