Award List:

OPTICAL FORCE TRAP MICROMANIPULATOR

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1991 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Robert E. Alvarez, Ph.d. , President
Award Amount: $49,655.00
Abstract:
The opportunity addressed by the proposal is to develop an optical force trap micromanipulator suitable for everyday use in a biology laboratory. an optical force trap uses light from a laser to exert forces and to move microscopic sized objects. because they use light, they are able to manipulate… More

ACTIVE ENERGY SELECTIVE CASSETTE

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1991 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Alvarez, Robert E , Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $49,969.00

ACTIVE ENERGY SELECTIVE CASSETTE

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1993 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Alvarez, Robert E , Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $500,000.00
Abstract:
Dual energy imaging has the potential to add new and powerful diagnostic capabilities to a medical x-ray examination. unlike an ordinary x-ray image, dual energy image data can be processed to give information about the chemical composition of body tissues. this new information can be used, for… More

X-Ray Spectrogram Film Densitometer

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1995 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOC
Principal Investigator: Robert E. Alvarez , President
Award Amount: $49,996.00
Abstract:
The increased emphasis on mass screening for early detection of cancer has created a demand for effective quality assurance of medical radiography equipment. This is particularly true in mammography where indications of cancer are subtle and the image quality varies strongly with the x-ray… More

Scanning Head Storage Phosphor Plate Scanner

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1995 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOC
Principal Investigator: Robert E. Alvarez , President
Award Amount: $49,951.00

Scanning Head Storage Phosphor Plate Scanner

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1996 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOC
Principal Investigator: Robert E. Alvarez , President
Award Amount: $200,000.00
Abstract:
The specific problem addressed by the proposed research is the development of a scanner for storage phosphor plates with significantly better positional and intensity accuracy than the current state of the art. The new scanner will be based on the use of a "scanning head" scanning approach which is… More

ACTIVE DETECTOR DUAL ENERGY CHEST RADIOGRAPHY CAD

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2002 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Robert E. Alvarez
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The specific aim of our proposed research is to develop an improved, computer-assisted detection and characterization (CAD) system for lung nodules in chest x-ray images. The overall objective is to improve the performance of chest radiography so it will provide… More

Dual Energy Chest Radiography CAD

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Robert Alvarez
Award Amount: $703,895.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The long-term objective of our proposed research is to improve the early detection of lung cancer with chest radiography. Because chest radiography is used for such a wide variety of medical conditions, it is, by far, the most widely used diagnostic imaging… More
