The use of different types of signals is hugely important in all areas of healthcare. Signal processing engineers are involved in everything from extracting information from the body’s own electrical and chemical signals to using wireless signals to allow search-and-rescue robot swarms to communicate with each other. The resources in this collection, from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), look at the use of signals and imaging techniques in healthcare.
