This set of Biomedical Instrumentation Multiple Choice Questions & Answers (MCQs) focuses on “Transmission of Still Images”.

1. The minimum input of physical parameter that will create a detectable out change. This is the definition of which of the following parameter?
a) threshold
b) span
c) sensitivity
d) precision

Explanation: The sensitivity of the sensor is defined as the slope of the output characteristic curve. In simple words The minimum input of physical parameter that will create a detectable out change is called sensitivity. Total operating range of the transducer is called its span.

2. What is the total operating range of the transducer is called?
a) offset
b) threshold
c) span
d) drift

Explanation: The total operating range of the transducer is called the span of the transducer. Offset is the output that will exist when it should be zero. Drift is basically the change in a signal over a long period of time.

3. Hysteresis is changed in output with the same value of the input.
a) True
b) False

Explanation: Hysteresis is observed when the input/output characteristics for a transducer are different for increasing inputs than for decreasing outputs. Hysteresis is changed in output with the same value of input but with a different history of input variation. It results when some of the energy applied for increasing inputs is not recovered when the input decreases.

4. What is the region called in which the output does not change with an increase in input?
a) saturation
b) threshold
c) offset
d) input range

Explanation: The region in which the output does not change with an increase in input is called saturation. The threshold of the transducer is the smallest change in measurant that will result in a measurable change in the transducer output. Offset is the output that will exist when it should be zero.

5. Which of the following characteristic is defined for the material: Ability of the sensor to repeat a measurement when put back in the same environment.
a) saturation
b) conformance
c) threshold
d) repeatability

Explanation: Ability of the sensor to repeat a measurement when put back in the same environment is called repeatability. The threshold of the transducer is the smallest change in measurant that will result in a measurable change in the transducer output. The region in which the output does not change with an increase in input is called saturation.

6. ___________ is called the closeness of a calibration curve to a specified curve for an inherently non linear transducer.
a) saturation
b) linearity
c) conformance
d) hysteresis

Explanation: Hysteresis is changed in output with the same value of input but with a different history of input variation. Conformance indicates the closeness of a calibration curve to a specified curve for an inherently non linear transducer. The region in which the output does not change with an increase in input is called saturation.

7. The range between the max and min values is applied parameter which can be measured is called ____________
a) repeatability
b) span
c) output range
d) input range

Explanation: Ability of the sensor to repeat a measurement when put back in the same environment is called repeatability. Input range is the range between the max and min values is applied parameter which can be measured. The total operating range of the transducer is called span of the transducer.

8. ___________ is not a static property.
a) repeatability
b) frequency response
c) hysteresis
d) saturation

Explanation: Frequency response is the change of transfer function with frequency, both in magnitude and in phase. It is a dynamic property. The region in which the output does not change with an increase in the input is called saturation. Ability of the sensor to repeat a measurement when put back in the same environment is called repeatability.

9. Time for the sensor to reach a stable output once it is turned on. This is the definition of ________________
a) settling time
b) span
c) frequency response
d) response time

Explanation: Frequency response is the change of transfer function with frequency, both in magnitude and in phase. Settling time is the time for the sensor to reach a stable output once it is turned on. The total operating range of the transducer is called the span of the transducer.

10. _______________ is not a dynamic property.
a) frequency response
b) response time
c) settling time
d) saturation

Explanation: Settling time is the time for the sensor to reach a stable output once it is turned on. The region in which the output does not change with an increase in the input is called saturation. It is a static property of the transducer. Frequency response is the change of transfer function with frequency, both in magnitude and in phase.
