Specialization profile--Biomedical signal procesing

Biomedical Signal Processing focuses on signal processing for the acquisition, modeling, analysis and processing of biomedical signals. These can be natural signals from the body as with signals measured in the heart or brain (EEG, ECG) or multichannel signals from imaging systems (e.g. ultrasound, MRI or photo-acoustic imaging).
