MDBP-101 – Biomedical Physics

Course lecturer :

Dr.Nabil El-Nashar Dr.Mervat Mostafa

Course assistant :

L.A Radwa Abdelrahman L.A Shorouk Allam L.A Abdelrahman

Course objectives :

At the end of the course, the students will be able to; 1-We will use principles of physics from mechanics, fluids, electricity and magnetism, thermodynamics.

2- Have a good information about acoustics and optics to model aspects of human structural design and performance such as respiration, circulation, muscle and nerve operation, heat regulation, hearing and vision.

Course description :

This course covers applications of physics to two important areas of medical science: the mechanisms of the human body and the design of modern diagnostic and treatment techniques. We will use principles of physics from mechanics, fluids, electricity and magnetism, thermodynamics, acoustics and optics to model aspects of human structural design and performance such as respiration, circulation, muscle and nerve operation, heat regulation, hearing and vision.
