Electronic Test Equipment is used to create stimulus signals and capture responses from electronic devices under test (DUTs). In this way, the proper operation of the DUT can be proven or faults in the device can be traced and repaired. Practical electronics engineering and assembly requires the use of many different kinds of electronic test equipment ranging from the very simple and inexpensive such as a test light consisting of just a light bulb and a test lead to extremely complex and sophisticated such as automatic test equipment. Biomedical devices are materials that interact with biological systems to replace, improve or repair specified physiological conditions. Although often used for medical applications, biomedical products also describes many other elements, including fermentation-produced enzymes and pharmaceutical products, diagnostics and novel biomaterials.

Telemedicine is a rapidly developing application of clinical medicine where medical information is transferred via telephone, the Internet or other networks for the purpose of consulting and sometimes remote medical procedures or examinations.Telemedicine may be as simple as two health professionals discussing a case over the telephone, or as complex as using satellite technology and video-conferencing equipment to conduct a real-time consultation between medical specialists in two different countries. Telemedicine generally refers to the use of communications and information technologies for the delivery of clinical care.

Teleradiology is the electronic transmission of radiological patient images, such as x-rays, CTs, and MRIs, from one location to another for the purposes of interpretation and/or consultation. Teleradiology improves patient care by allowing Radiologists to provide services without actually having to be at the location of the patient. This is particularly key when a sub specialist such as a neurology radiologist or pediatric radiologist is needed as these professionals are generally only located in large metropolitan areas working during day time hours. Teleradiology network is performed using standard network technologies such as the internet, telephone lines, wide area network (WAN), or over a local area network (LAN). Highly specialized software is used to transmit the images and enable the radiologist to effectively analyze what can be 100's of images for a given study. Technologies such as advanced graphics processing, voice recognition, and image compression are often used in teleradiology. Through teleradiology, images can be sent to another part of the hospital, or to other locations around the world. Teleradiologists can provide a preliminary read for emergency room purposes or a final read for the official patient record and for use in billing.
