Biomedical Engineering is the most recent and challenging field of engineering that involves applying the principles, knowledge and approaches from all major fields of sciences and engineering to provide medical/clinical experts with the accurate tools for diagnostics, clinical studies and treatment. Biomedical Engineering in itself is a highly research oriented and interdisciplinary field. Biomedical engineering derives its principle and knowledge from all major engineering and science branch such as electronic, electrical, instrumentation, mechanical, computers etc. and chemistry, physics, nuclear physics, biology, pharmacology, physiology, etc. Whenever some new technology is developed its application in biomedical engineering is always searched. For example, the development of optical fibers in late 1980s has led to the development of endoscope indeed a useful device for abdomen examination and surgery applications. Further, most of the high end imaging systems such as CT scan, MR imaging have been only possible because of tremendous advancement in computer technology both at the hardware and software end. The list is long and it is not possible to cover all these in the present article. Finally, we can say that it is only because of technological advancement that we have been successfully able to design and develop accurate diagnostic devices (Ultra sound scan, CT scan, ECG, EMG and EEG machines etc.), prosthetic devices (pacemaker, heart valves, artificial limbs), treatment and surgery devices (LASER based surgery systems, electrosurgical units, radiotherapy systems, Lithotripters etc). Thus, advancement in the field of science and technology from all fronts has contributed a lot to the research and development of biomedical engineering.
