On 28th November 2019, IEEE AIUB Student Branch in collaboration with IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society AIUB Student Branch Chapter, IEEE Bangladesh Section and Faculty of Engineering, AIUB organized a distinguished lecture session titled “Development of a high intensity focal ultrasound system for treatment of deep-seated brain tumors” at AIUB. The focus of the session was different ultrasound techniques used for advanced detection of Cancer and Tumor cells in the brain and other sensitive deep organs of the human body. The session was inaugurated by Dr. Mohammad Hasan Imam, Counselor, IEEE AIUB Student Branch; Advisor, IEEE EMBS AIUB Student Branch Chapter; Sr. Assistant Professor, Faculty of Engineering, AIUB where he gave an overview of IEEE AIUB Student Branch including different chapters those are associated with it, along with the achievements of this branch in recent years. Later, he discussed about the Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS) chapter – its vision and the sectors that this chapter mainly focuses on. The session was conducted by Prof. Dr. V. R. Singh, Life fellow-IEEE, Associate Editor, IEEE-Transactions on Instrumentation and Measurement; Chair, IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, Delhi National Physical Laboratory, where he shared his experiences with the participants. He discussed about Ultrasound imaging process for diagnosing human body abnormalities and the importance of using high and low power Ultrasound in Biomedical sector. He elaborately talked about various types of cancers and tumors as well as the techniques of diagnosing them successfully. Later, he talked about his research activities which include diagnostic scanners, therapeutic systems, safety standards and many more. In addition, he talked about the modern techniques for cancer diagnosis. He later introduced High Intensity focused Ultrasound technique for curing tumors and explained the ways it differs from other methods.
The closing speech was delivered by Prof. Dr. Md. Abdur Rahman, Advisor, IEEE AIUB Student Branch; Associate Dean, Faculty of Engineering, AIUB who talked about the importance of engineers for the betterment of humanity. He also talked about the gradual expansion of modern technologies and the necessities of using these technologies for successful treatment of human body. He concluded by thanking the honorable speaker and IEEE AIUB Student Branch for such an informative session. Later, Prof. Dr. Md. Abdur Rahman, Prof. Dr. Mohammad Abdul Mannan, Director, Faculty of Engineering, AIUB, Nafiz Ahmed Chisty, Department Head, EEE, Faculty of Engineering, AIUB, Md. Saniat Rahman Zishan, Advisor, IEEE AIUB Student Branch; Department Head, CoE, Faculty of Engineering, AIUB, Chowdhury Akram Hossain, Former Counselor, IEEE AIUB Student Branch; Sr. Assistant Professor, Faculty of Engineering, AIUB; Special Assistant, Office of Student Affairs (OSA) and Dr. Mohammad Hasan Imam presented a token of appreciation to the speaker Prof. Dr. V.R. Singh. The event was graced by the presence of faculty members of Department of EEE and CoE.
