  5. TRUE-COLOR IMAGE WORKSTATION FOR PATHOLOGY RESEARCH

    SBC: POTOMAC MEDICAL SYSTEMS            Topic: N/A

    UNTIL NOW, THE BENEFITS OF COMPUTERIZATION HAVE NOT SPREAD TO IMAGE-BASED FIELDS SUCH AS PATHOLOGY. ALTHOUGH A FEW EXPENSIVE IMAGE-PROCESSING COMPUTER SYSTEMS HAVE BEEN USED FOR PATHOLOGY RESEARCH, AFFORDABLE, GENERAL-PURPOSE SYSTEMS HAVE BEEN UNAVAILABLE. IMAGE PROCESSING HAS BEEN LIMITED TO BLACK-AND-WHITE IMAGES. RECENT PROGRESS IN MICROCOMPUTERIMAGE-PROCESSING HARDWARE WILL NOW ALLOW THE PRODU ...

  10. A NEW DEVICE FOR MICRODOSIMETRY

    SBC: Pellissippi International Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL DEALS WITH THE DEVELOPMENT OF A RADIATION DETECTOR TO MAKE POSSIBLE THE DIRECT MEASURMENT OF THE STRUCTURE OF CHARGED-PARTICLE TRACKS IN A GAS. SUCH A DETECTOR WILL PERMIT THE MEASUREMENT OF MICRODOSIMETRIC DISTRIBUTIONS IN VOLUMES THAT CORRESPOND TO NANOMETERS IN A BIOLOGICAL CELL, E.G., THE DIAMETER OF A DNA MOLECULE. WHENA CHARGED PARTICLE PENETRATES A GAS, ELECTRONS PRODUCED DURI ...
