In 2000 a full-fledged Department of Medical Physics & Biomedical Engineering was founded at Gono Bishwabidyalay, Savar, Dhaka, Bangladesh with M.Sc course of international standard. From 2005, B.Sc (Hons) course in Medical Physics and in Biomedical Engineering was launched.
Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering:
Medical Physics is the application of physics to medicine. It generally concerns physics as applied to medical imaging and radiotherapy, although a med ical physicist may work in many other areas of healthcare. Biom edical engineering is an interdisciplinary field of advanced knowledge of engineering and science to solve medical and healthcare related problems.
This unique field encompasses:
Bio-instrumentation, Radiotherapy Treatment Planning, Radiation Dosimetry, Bi o- materials, Nuclear Medicine, Radiotherapy Devices, Bio -Mechanics, Radiation Protection, Medical Imaging, Radiation Oncology Physics, Brachytherapy, Cellular and Tissue Engineering, Laser medicine, Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT),
