Medical Technology

Biomedical engineering is a science where technical, physical and mathematical methods used to better describe the physiological function and to develop new methods of diagnosis, surveillance and disease management.

Biomedical engineering is a field which is interdisciplinary. It integrates physics, mathematics and life sciences with engineering skills in order not only to study biology, medicine, healthcare systems and secondly to improve our health and quality of life. Medical technology provides knowledge of all levels from molecular to the organ systems level. The development of materials, products, facilities, systems, information approaches, technology management practices, strategies for assessment and evaluation of technologies, methods of prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases and methods for implementing health, patient care and rehabilitation. Our current projects in the field of study at LTU encompass to develop a new method to detect and diagnose prostate cancer and to develop a new technique for the study of hemoproteins.
