International Journal of Biomedical Engineering and Technology (IJBET)
International Journal of Biomedical Engineering and Technology (IJBET) aims
to advance and foster cutting edge research in the multi-disciplinary area
of biomedical engineering and technology. Medical science is rapidly
incorporating advances in science and technology that are combining to
produce more accurate diagnoses, more effective treatments with fewer side
effects, and improved ability to prevent disease and provide superior
quality healthcare. One of the fields central to this endeavour is
biomedical engineering and technology.
Biomedical engineering and technology is a multi-disciplinary field that
provides a synthesis of physical, chemical, mathematical, and computational
sciences combined with engineering principles to enhance research and
developments in biology, medicine, behaviour, and health. It advances
fundamental concepts; creates knowledge from the molecular to the organ
systems level; and develops innovative biologics, materials, processes,
implants, devices and informatics approaches for the prevention, diagnosis,
and treatment of disease, for patient rehabilitation, and providing an
overall enhancement of healthcare.
The objectives of IJBET are to establish an effective channel of
communication between researchers and practitioners, government agencies,
academic and research institutions and persons concerned with the complex
roles of biomedical engineering and technology.
It also aims to promote and coordinate developments in the field from the
laboratory bench to the patient¹s bedside. Healthcare is a global industry;
the international dimension is therefore emphasised in order to facilitate
the development of solutions that have a universal focus.
IJBET publishes original papers, review papers, technical reports, case
studies, conference reports, management reports, book reviews, notes,
commentaries, and news. Special Issues devoted to important topics in
biomedical engineering and technology will occasionally be published.
