Technical Presentation Series: Ian J. Wilson, MD
How non-engineers, like me, use BME: an interventional radiologist's perspective
A discussion of the application of biomedical engineering principles employed on a daily basis for the treatment of patients with various diseases. The procedures utilized to treat them will be discussed in a manner relevant to the biomedical engineering student. A brief overview of the disease processes and current treatments employed by the "end-user" will be provided with the goal of enhancing appreciation for the multidisciplinary nature of BME practice.
Technical Presentation Series
The goal of this series is to provide experiences to students that facilitate a better understanding and appreciation for how technology impacts biomedical healthcare. The academic environment provides students with didactic materials that prepare them intellectually for the road ahead. However, most students rarely have the opportunity to interact with individuals that are currently working in industry. Such interactions can have an extraordinary impact on the short and long term goals of students planning to enter the biomedical healthcare workplace arena. Also, it places companies in direct contact with a diverse group of students that will enter the job market in the near future. With that in mind the Technical Presentation Series is focused on bridging the gap and bringing individuals from industry together with students in Biomedical Engineering.
