About us

Scientific profile of Nuclear and Medical Electronics Division includes two main areas – Biomedical Engineering and nuclear techniques.  We explore the fact that in multiple applications both of them are tightly interlinked.

Research and teaching in the Biomedical Engineering area covers wide range of  topics and they integrate both advanced electronics and computer systems with basic medical knowledge. Main research topics include:

  • nuclear medicine;
  • quantitative measurements in computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI);
  • dynamic imaging of physiological processes in CT and MRI;
  • process tomography in the field of electric capacitance tomography;
  • magnetic resonance imaging equipment, coils and signal processing;
  • radiography, both conventional and digital;
  • medical image processing and recognition;
  • methodology of measurements and design of hardware for measurements of bio-potentials – EEG, EMG, ECG, high resolution ECG;
  • medical applications of radioisotope techniques;
  • biomedical accelerators.

In the field of nuclear techniques our research includes previously mentioned medical applications, but we are also conducting research in other fields:

  • design of equipment and software for high energy physics experiments (notably, design of light detectors and their signal processing chains),
  • techniques of detection of ionizing radiation,
  • spectroscopy of of ionizing radiation in medical and industrial applications.
