Biomedical instrumentation, or bioinstrumentation, encompasses the development and usage of technologies for the detection, prevention, and treatment of problems involving the biological system. Device development for clinical applications comprises of a major aspect of this branch of biomedical engineering, requiring knowledge of electrical circuitry, computer programming, human physiology, etc. Devices for diagnosis such as MRI, CT scan, X-ray, and many more fall under this area of specialization. Implantanable devices such as cochlear implants, pacemakers, etc., as well as smaller devices such as syringe pumps, are the products of bioinstrumentation. Typical sensors are developed for the measurement of physiological signals, such as ECG, EEG, etc., which are processed into information decipherable for the diagnosis of diseases.
