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
