During the Fall 2012 semester, the students in Professor Ladimer Nagurney's BE 401 Bioinstrumentation course chose research articles on Biomedical Devices or Technology to read, prepare an executive summary, and make a presentation to the class. On Thursday, December 13, 2012, the students presented their summaries to their fellow students and received their feedback.
Among the choices of topics were: Microwave Imaging for Breast Cancer, First Deployments of Augmented Reality in Operating Rooms, Toward More Precise Radiotherapy of Lung Tumors, Challenges in Body Area Networks for Healthcare: The MAC, Fusion Managing Healthcare Records at Cloud Scale, and Easy to Swallow Medical Telemetry.
Biomedical Instrumentation is a required course for senior Biomedical Engineering Students and an elective course for other Engineering Students. This past fall there were 7 students enrolled in the course.
