Department of Biomedical Engineering (IMT)

In close collaboration with the medical technology industry and medical clinics we work to meet the needs in healthcare. Since 1972, we have been a national center for research and graduate and undergraduate education in medical technology. 

We strive towards being a catalyst for sustainability in future medical systems and innovations – an arena for leading international researchers and teachers where new knowledge is created and dispersed

Our research and education centers around biomedical optics, ultrasound and bio-acoustics, modeling and simulation of physiological processes, neuro-technology, knowledge-based decision support systems as well as signal and image processing methods.

Docent lecture: Evren Özarslan - Signatures of brain microstructure in diffusion MRI 

After introducing the basics of diffusion MRI, I will describe how the technique can be employed to address important problems such as mapping neural connectivity and delineating microstructure in the brain. In the latter part of the talk, I will discuss recent advances on the influence of the geometry of neural projections on the observed diffusion MRI signal.

PhD Seminar: Martin Hultman - Microcirculatory imaging using programmable electronics and machine learning

Multi-exposure laser speckle contrast imaging (MELSCI) is a non-invasive technique for measuring the microcirculation in superficial tissue. By using images at multiple exposure times many advantages are gained compared to conventional single-exposure LSCI, but this also comes with new difficulties and higher demands on both hardware and algorithms. In this talk, I will present a new MELSCI technique using programmable electronics and machine learning, which overcomes many of these challenges.

IMT Seminar: Rolf Saager - Spectral Imaging in the Spatial Frequency Domain

In this talk, I will present an overview of spatial frequency domain spectroscopy (SFDS), how it approaches the challenge of differentiating structures within compound tissues, such as skin, its current limitations, as well as discuss a few unmet clinical needs this non-invasive approach may provide unique insight.

Doctoral studies

Postgraduate studies at the Department of Biomedical Engineering are characterized by their multidisciplinary profile, where research and education takes place at the meeting place of medicine and technology. The aim of postgraduate education is to provide broader and deeper knowledge within the field of medical technology and specific knowledge in the dissertation field, as well as providing research experiences and skills in research methodology.

Undergraduate education

We educate bachelor level engineers and master level engineers. This is done both through the degree program in biomedical engineering as well as in collabotation with other engineering programs. The proximity to the hospital allows for field trips, demonstrations and laboratory work in clinics. Experts from the hospital often are hired as lecturers in their areas of expertice.
