  6. Rapid Point-of-Care Salivary Diagnostic for Periodontal Health


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The dental profession has searched for many years for additional real time chair-side measures to provide objective measures to aid in the monitoring of periodontal health and early diagnosis of disease. Research efforts have produced solid evidence that constituents present in saliva can provide important complimentary diagnostic information, and have the po ...

  8. Magnetic Tracking and Orientation of Imaging Endoscopic Capsules


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Prior to the advent of capsule endoscopes (CE), imaging and examination of the small bowel was difficult. Today, a patient swallows the capsule with an imaging camera, which is then carried passively through the gastrointestinal (GI) tract by peristalsis. The onboard camera captures images of the lumen wall several times per second over a 7-11 hour period, rela ...
