  1. Optical Periodontal Probe

    SBC: ABIOMED, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The objective is an optical periodontal probe tailored to automatically measure and record multiple tissue parameters deemed important for disease detection and treatment monitoring. As a first step in the development of a multi-functional device, a probe designed to mimic the visual measurements made by dental clinicians to determine pocket depth, bleeding on probing (BOP) and tissue coloration w ...

  2. Maclab Hypercard Tutorials for Physiology Teaching

    SBC: Adinstruments            Topic: N/A

    The initial step to producing a series of interactive HyperCard packages for laboratory instructionwill involve developing a template program based on the Physiology of striated muscle. The flexibilityinherent within the software programs will permit students to learn at their own level. QuickTime videosequences will be developed to display the experiment on the computer screen together with dataa ...

  5. Surface Modification of Polymers for Artificial Corneas

    SBC: AST PRODUCTS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Opacification of the normally transparent cornea is among the leading causes of blindnessworldwide. Often vision can be restored by corneal transplantation but the procedure requires theavailability of a) suitable human corneal donor tissue; and b) a sophisticated eye banking system. It isfurther limited by the potential to transmit diseases such as AIDS and hepatitis. A significant advancewould b ...

  7. A NEW FAST HIGH Z SCINTILLATOR FOR PET

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    POSITRON EMMISSION TOMOGRAHY (PET) IS A NON-INVASIVE MEDICAL IMAGING TECHNIQUE WHICH PROVIDES AN IMAGE OF A POSITRON EMITTING RADIO PHARMACEUTICAL AND ITS DISTRIBUTION IN THE BODY ON A METABOLIC LEVEL. AT THE PRESENT TIME, THE PERFORMANCE OF THIS INSTRUMENT IS LIMITED BY THE NUCLEAR DETECTORS USED. ONE PROMISING APPROACH THAT HAS BEEN DEVELOPED BY THE RESEARCHERS AT LBL TO GENERATE HIGH RESOLUTION ...

  8. LARGE AREA IMAGING DETECTOR FOR TRITIUM SAMPLES

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    MOST OF THE TISSUE IN THE HUMAN BODY REGENERATES AFTER INJURY. ONE OF THE FEW TISSUES THAT ARE UNABLE TO REGENERATE IS THE CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM (CNS). RESEARCHERS USE RADIOACTIVE TRITIUM (3H) COMPOUNDS TO LABEL THESE PROTEINS TO IDENTIFY THE PROTEINS THAT MAY BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE INABILITY OF THE CNS TO REGENERATE. A MAJOR TECHNICAL HURDLE THAT IMPEDES THE RATE OF PROGRESS ARISES FROM THE FACT ...

  9. Large Area Digital Imaging System for Mammography

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In mammography, early detection of breast cancer is dependent upon the ability of the imagingsystem to resolve characteristic distributions and shapes of small microcalcifications in the breast tissue,since approximately 80% of excised breast cancers show areas of calcification on histologicexamination. The medical community has not been satisfied with the imaging performance of standardfilm-scree ...

  10. Room Temperature Photosensors for Pet

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Positron Emission Tomography (PET) has now reached a degree of maturity where several of itsearly promises have been fulfilled. PET is able to provide information on both structure and function ofdifferent parts of the brain. It is becoming an important fundamental tool for both clinical diagnosis andmedical research. Presently, PET performance is limited by the photosensors used. Future advancesi ...
