Medical Measurement Methods

Learn how sensors work and how to implement them.

Inhalt

Introduction to measurement characteristics, how to turn a mechanical value into an electrical value, how to measure the temperature, height, speed, mass, torque, blood pressure, blood flow, and muscle contraction (weak noisy signals) of a patient.

After participating in this course you should be able to:

  • Explain the basic principles of a sensor
  • Describe measurement properties
  • Explain how a physical value is converted into a digital value
  • Implement basic electrical circuits transforming physical values into electrical values
  • Explain measurement methods of multiple different physical quantities in medical engineering
  • Implement signal amplifiers and methods to reduce signal noise
  • Select and set up the appropriate sensor for a given medical application

Overall, this course will be very hands-on and the majority on methods learned will also be implemented in the labs following the lecture.

Ideal Students

  • Students of the M.Sc. programme Medizintechnik or Maschinenbau/MGT
  • Specialisation 'Medizingerätekonstruktion'
  • Highly interested in creating devices that interact with the body
