Biomedical engineering is the convergence and application of engineering principles to human biology or medicine in order to develop technologies to improve patient care. The discipline embraces applications from physiology, human biology, molecular imaging to the re-construction of tissues and organs. Technically, although biomedical engineers are not medical practitioners, they could be regarded as indirect practitioners, since the protocols, processes, and technologies they develop codetermine medical practice.
