NDT 100 Biomedical Electronics • 2 Cr.
Introduction to the field of EEG and its use in medicine and surgery. Emphasizes: instrumentation, principles of conversion between analog and digital signals, localization techniques for bipolar and referential montage, and the purpose of bipolar and referential montage. Technical principles in actual operation of a laboratory are introduced in the classroom and applied in the clinical area of EEG. Prerequisite: Acceptance into program. Previously ENDT 100. Either ENDT 100 or NDT 100 may be taken for credit, but not both.
After completing this class, students should be able to:
Verify standard filter settings and their effects on the recording using a differential amplifier
Verify localization techniques for bipolar and referential montages using polarity convention
Explain basic electronics (time constant, ohms law, etc.)
Apply appropriate precautions to ensure electrical safety for patients and staff
Apply the principles of conversion between analog and digital signals
Calculate voltage, duration, and frequency of a waveform
Evaluate impedance and how it is measured
