The object with the course Biomedical Measurements is to give a broad understanding for the problems that are associated with the use of measurement technology in the medical environment. Applications within health and welfare as well as clinical research will be discussed. In combination with the diploma work, it will lay an excellent foundation for further work within the biomedical engineering as well as for scientific research. The course is organized as a sequence of lectures given by selected lecturers, all of top quality within their competence areas
