Professor Lionel Tarassenko on "Advances in Biomedical Engineering".

Biomedical Engineering is a relatively new subject but advances in body scanners (from CT to MRI) in the last 2 decades have had a major impact on the practice of medicine. Oxford engineers have made significant contributions to the development of medical imaging and in other areas of biomedical engineering also, for example in artificial knees and needle-free injection of drugs and vaccines. The lecture reviewed Oxford's contribution to advances in biomedical engineering over the last 25 years and highlighted how the Department's new Institute of Biomedical Engineering plans to develop technology for the hospital of the future and for personalised healthcare.
