  2. A PRECISE REAL-TIME SYSTEM TO MEASURE EYE POSITION

    SBC: Advanced Image Measurement Sys            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT WILL DEVELOP AND TEST THE PROTOTYPE OF A NEW INSTRUMENT FOR MEASURING HORIZONTAL, VERTICAL, AND TORSIONAL EYE POSITIONS NONINVASIVELY, UNOBTRUSIVELY, AND SIMULTANEOUSLY. TESTING WILL BE DONE BY MEASURING A SIMULATED EYE AND BY COMPARING MEASUREMENTS ON HUMANS WITH THOSE MADE BY OTHER INSTRUMENTS. THE PROTOTYPE WILL HAVE A DIRECTIONAL RESOLUTION OF BETTER THAN 2 ARC MINUTES OVER +45 DE ...

  3. COMPOSITE, HOLLOW FIBER MEMBRANE OXYGENATION DEVICE

    SBC: ANATRACE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE ACCEPTANCE OF EXTRACORPOREAL OXYGENATION DEVICES BASED ON GAS TRANSFER THROUGH A MEMBRANE WILL DEPEND TO A LARGE EXTENT ON THE AVAILABILITY OF SIMPLER, EASIER TO USE, SAFER,AND LOWERCOST DEVICES. OXYGENATORS USING MICROPOROUS HOLLOWFIBERS HAVE COME INTO WIDER USE THE LAST FIVE YEARS. THEY PRESENT MORE MEMBRANE SURFACE TO BLOOD AND GAS PHASES FOR EQUIVALENT VOLUME AND DO NOT REQUIRE A SUPPLEMEN ...

  4. GLYCATED HEMOGLOBIN BY AUTOMATED AFFINITY CHROMATOGRAPHY

    SBC: ANATRACE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    CLASSICAL ASSAYS FOR DETERMINING BLOOD AND URINE GLUCOSE HAVE LIMITED VALUE FOR THE MONITORING OF AN INDIVIDUAL'S BLOOD GLUCOSE LEVEL OVER TIME. MEASUREMENT OF GLYCATED HEMOGLOBIN (GHB) IS ALREADY GAINING ACCEPTANCE FOR MANAGEMENT OF PERSONS WITH DIABETES MELLITUS. GHB LEVELS ARE NOT ONLY USEFUL FOR DIAGNOSIS BUT ALSO FOR THE ESTABLISHMENT OF CARE GOALS AND FOR CARE REINFORCEMENT. IN THE FUTURE, M ...

  5. 3-D SURFACE TEXTURED PLATINUM ELECTRODE/GLUCOSE SENSOR

    SBC: Applied Medical Technology Inc            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROGRAM IS RELATED TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF A PLATINUM-POLYSTYRENE ELECTRODE WITH TEXTURED SURFACE FOR A SUBCUTANEOUS ELECTROCATALYTIC SENSOR. THE SUBCUTANEOUS SENSOR HAS LOWER RISKS COMPARED TO AN INTRAVENOUS SENSOR, SOIT IS CONSIDERED FOR LONG-TERM MONITORING PURPOSES. IT HAS BEEN DEMONSTRATED THAT TEXTURED SURFACES ARE FAVORABLE FOR IMPLANTATION TO THE SOFT TISSUE DUE TO BETTER VASCULARIZATIO ...

  8. NEUROANATOMY WORKSTATION AND KNOWLEDGE ENGINEERING

    SBC: BIOGRAPHICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT WILL EXPLORE THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN ADVANCED, LOW-COST COMPUTER SYSTEM, BASED ON A VIRTUAL-MEMORY INTEL 80386 PROCESSOR, FOR IMAGE ANALYSIS, GRAPHICAL DATA STORAGE, AND THREE-DIMENSIONAL RECONSTRUCTION THAT WILL BE USED AS A NEUROANATOMICAL WORKSTATION. THE STATION WILL INCLUDE PROVISIONS FOR DATA INPUT FROM A DIGITIZING TABLET, COMPUTER MICROSCOPY USING A LIGHT MICROSCOPE WITH STEPPER ...

  9. NONLINEAR REFLECTION ULTRASOUND TISSUE CLASSIFICATION

    SBC: BIO-IMAGING RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THERE IS EVIDENCE THAT A MEASURE OF THE ULTRASOUND NONLINEAR PARAMETER (B/A) CAN BE A GOOD TISSUE CLASSIFIER. RECENTLY, THE MEDICAL ULTRASOUND COMMUNITY HAS WITNESSED A GREAT DEAL OF EFFORT IN THIS AREA. HOWEVER, TO DATE ALL THE REPORTED TECHNIQUES ARE EITHER SUITABLE ONLY FOR TRANSMISSION MODE OR REQUIRE A MULTITUDE OF ULTRASOUND BEAMSOR FREQUENCIES (OR BOTH). THESE ARE, OF COURSE, SEVERE SHORTCO ...

  10. ANTI-TARTAR AGENT

    SBC: Biomedical Development Corporation            Topic: N/A

    THE RESEARCH IN THIS PROJECT WILL TEST THE APPROPRIATENESS OF USING IMMUNOTHERAPY FOR PREVENTION OF DENTAL CALCULUS. AN IN VITRO MODEL OF MICROBIAL CALCIFICATION WILL BE USED.
