  1. CHRONIC DATA ACQUISITION SYSTEM AND PLAYBACK TO COMPUTER

    SBC: August Design, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    CONSIDERABLE EVIDENCE EXISTS THAT ANALYSIS OF THE ELECTRO- CARDIOGRAM OVER EXTENDED PERIODS OF TIME PROVIDES CLINICALLYSIGNIFICANT INFORMATION IMPORTANT IN THE DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT OF CARDIAN DISEASE. AVAILABLE AMBULATORY MONITOR-ING DEVICES ARE ADEQUATE FOR 24-HOUR PERIODS; LIMITATIONS ARE EVIDENT WHEN LONGER PERIODS ARE REQUIRED. THE PROJECT WILL ESTABLISH THE FEASIBILITY OF BIOLOGICAL DATA A ...

  2. CORAFLEX POLYURETHANE PROSTHETIC VALVE PROGRAM

    SBC: Biocontrol Technology Inc            Topic: N/A

    ALTHOUGH PROSTHETIC HEATT VALVES HAVE BEEN IN CLINICAL USE SINCE 1960, A NEED EXISTS FOR A VALVE THAT DOES NOT REQUIRE ANTICOAGULANTS AND HAS A LONG LIFE EXPECTANCY. BIOCONTROL TECHNOLOGY, INC. HAS DEVELOPED A VALVE THAT PROMISES TO MEET THESE CRITERIA. IT RESEMBLES THE HUMAN AORTIC VALVE, OR THE PORCINE OR BOVINE VALVES, BUT IT IS MADE OF BIOCOMPATIBLE, FATIGUE-RESISTANT CORAFLEX POLYURETHANE. TH ...

  4. EARLY DETECTION OF OVARIAN CARCINOMA

    SBC: Centocor            Topic: N/A

    PHASE I WILL INVESTIGATE THE FEASIBILITY OF CONDUCTING LARGER STUDIES TO DETERMINE WHETHER THE CA 125 IMMUNORADIOMETRIC ASSAY (IRMA), WHICH MEASURES TUMOR-ASSOCIATED ANTIGENIC DETERMINANTS IN SERUM, WILL BE USEFUL FOR EARLY DETECTION OF OVARIAN CANCER AMONG ASYMPTOMATIC WOMEN. THE AIMS OF THE PRESENT INVESTIGATION WILL BE 1.TO FORMULATE A FINAL PROTOCOL FOR A LARGER STUDY; 2.TO DEVELOP METHODS TO ...

  5. ULTRASONICALLY ACTIVATED SCALPEL FOR BLOODLESS SURGERY

    SBC: Energy & Minerals Research            Topic: N/A

    DERMATOLOGISTS AND PLASTIC SURGEONS NEED TO PRODUCE WELL-CONTROLLED, BLOODLESS INCISIONS. WHILE THE COMMON, COLD-STEEL SCALPEL PROVIDES SURGEONS WITH CONTROL OVER LENGTH AND DEPTH OF CUT (DEPENDENT ON INDIVIDUAL SKILLS), THE SURGICAL FIELD IS NOT BLOODLESS. FOR MANY APPLICATIONS,A SELFCAUTERIZING BLADE WOULD BE CLEARLY ADVANTAGEOUS. SURGICAL DEVICES SUCH AS LASERS, ELECTROCHEMICAL CAUTERIES, HEATE ...

  6. IMPROVED DIGITAL SKINFOLD CALIPER FOR THE AGED

    SBC: Ida, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE AIM OF THIS PROJECT IS TO DEVELOP A COMPUTER-BASED "SMART" SKINFOLD THICKNESS CALIPER SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED FORUSE WITH THE GERIATRIC POPULATION. THE DESIGN GOAL IS TO COMPENSATE FOR DIFFERENCES IN SKINFOLD COMPRESSIBILITY, VARIATIONS DUE TO MEASUREMENT SITE, AND PHYSICAL EXTREMES WITHIN THE SUBJECT POPULATION. A NUMBER OF MAJOR DESIGN CHANGES FOR SKINFOLD CALIPERS ALREADY HAVE BEEN INVESTIGAT ...

  10. USE OF ADAPTIVE BEAM FORMING IN CLINICAL ULTRASOUND

    SBC: Interspec Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE OVERALL GOAL OF THE PROJECT IS TO IMPROVE RESOLUTION WHEN USING LARGE-APERTURE, PHASED LINEAR ARRAYS IN CLINICAL ULTRASOUND. IN PARTICULAR, MEANS WILL BE DEVELOPED TO ELIMINATE BEAM-FORMING ERRORS CAUSED BY VARIATIONS OF SOUND VELOCITY IN THE ORGANS BEING IMAGED OR BY PHASE ERRORSIN THE SYSTEM HARDWARE ITSELF. IT IS BELIEVED THAT CURRENT CLINICAL INSTRUMENTS FAIL TO ACHIEVE THEIR POTENTIAL RES ...
