Clinical Measurement

The Clinical Measurement Section is concerned with measuring physiological performance via techniques developed from a deep understanding of physics. At present the section is mainly concerned with electrophysiology, though measurements based on flow and pressure are (have been) exploited to provided significant clues to pathology and to help in patient management.

Clinical measurement is often considered to sit at the fringes of medical physics and often, to the expert physicist, the novel anatomy and physiology of the various biological systems studied may appear daunting.  Underpinning the service is complex physics and engineering.
