Health related measurements are different from many other areas as the measurement object is a human being and application of measurement standards and methods can be challenging. This can lead to poor repeatability and reproducibility in health measurement, and inexact definitions of what is physiologic or pathologic.

EURAMET research programmes address more reliable, comparable and efficient use of diagnostic and therapeutic methods in the health area. The programmes also address the development of new techniques to improve health care, limit costs, foster the competitiveness of related European industries and underpin regulation.
