         DEPARTMENT OF BIO-MEDICAL ENGINEERING

Biomedical Engineering Section with expertise in engineering and technology management have a vital role to play in determining the potential for implementation and cost effectiveness of new medical technologies through technology assessment. Technology assessment offers the essential bridge between basic research and development and the prudent practical applications of medical technology. Because of the recent explosion of healthcare technologies, it is almost impossible for any single individual to stay abreast of these new technologies, much less provide an adequate assessment. To meet this need for comprehensive technology assessment, a multidisciplinary team approach is desirable.
