  1. A Doppler Simulator for Vascular Ultrasound Training

    SBC: Sheehan Medical LLC            Topic: NIBIB

    We will develop and test a simulator of diagnostic vascular ultrasound for use in medical education and professional certification. The simulator will include not only two-dimensional (2D) images but also Doppler spectral waveforms to simulate duplex ultrasound scanning. The rationale is that education in diagnostic ultrasound has traditionally been based on an extended duration of clinical exposu ...

  2. High Intensity Ultrasonic Device for Mitigating Neonatal Perioperative Bleeding

    SBC: BIODESIGN RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT, LLC            Topic: NHLBI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Congenital heart disease (CHD) ranges from benign lesions to life-threatening structural abnormalities. While benign lesions may resolve without intervention, severe structural lesions require complex pediatric cardiacsurgery. The reconstruction of the aortic arch in children is a complex repair in which perioperative bleeding i a significant, important and fre ...
