Acoustic Sensors in Biomedical Applications
The biomedical engineering domain is concerned with physiological modeling, biomaterials, biomechanics, control and simulation, etc. Biomedical sensors are considered the most vital parts in the biomedical engineering. These sensors enable the biologic events detection and conversion to signals. The biomedical sensors receipt signals that represent the biomedical measurements and convert them into optical or electrical signals. Thus, the biomedical sensor acts as an interface between the biological feature and the electronic system. Sensor specialists and biomedical engineers are interested to process and design sensors for several application problems. This chapter introduces some examples of the acoustic sensors in different biomedical applications.
