It allowed us to view the body without making incisions. It assisted in more accurate diagnosis of patients and changed the way medicine functioned. Around World War I biomedical engineering began to expand with increased research facilities. The facilities mainly focused on ionizing radiation and understanding the effects of X-rays on tissues. Once that expanded interest grew in medical electronics leading to discoveries . The biomedical engineering field is just beginning. With the advancement of stem cell research the future of biomedical engineering is promising. It creates huge outlets of the future that will change the lives of many to come....
