The gallbladder concentrates and stores bile as a pear-shaped sac which it can release to help digestion after a fatty meal.
Biomedical engineering (BME) is a relatively new discipline that deals with the development and manufacture of prostheses, diagnostic devices, and medical devices. Biomedical engineering covers the fields of bioinformatics, medical imaging, image processing, physiological signal processing, 3-D modeling, etc. The field is a highly regulated one because of reasons like the invasive nature of the prosthetics and the need to have a set process to minimize the risk of accidents. A biomedical engineer requires sound knowledge of engineering concepts and biology.
