The students got an excellent opportunity to know about the functioning of various biomedical instruments. They also interacted with the biomedical engineer at the Hospital and learned about features and utilities of different instruments. It helped the students in combining the academic knowledge with practical experience. The students were introduced to x-ray machine, CT Scan machine, MRI machine and ultrasound machine. The imaging system, including the procedures and measurements, was explained by the biomedical engineer. The functionality of ECG, EEG, EMG and defibrillator along with the electrode system was also demonstrated to the students.
