Signal Processing in Medical Applications

This profile emphasizes signal processing in medical diagnostics. One example is ultrasound (sound with frequencies above the audible range) being used to ‘look’ inside our bodies. Signal processing is used to produce and process the detected ultrasound images. By choosing the profile Signal Processing in Medicine you will achieve extensive competence within signal processing with specialization within medical and medical-technical fields.
