  1. PROSTATE BOUNDARY DETECTION IN ULTRASOUND IMAGES

    SBC: INSIGHTFUL CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The goal of this proposal is to improve the effectiveness of transrectal ultrasound (TRUS) in diagnosing and treating prostate diseases. Prostate boundaries in TRUS images provide the anatomical description needed for diagnosis, for treatment planning, and for follow-up. Our proposed research enables computer aided prostate delineation using "just-enough inter ...

  2. CAUSAL MODELING SOFTWARE FOR LONGITUDINAL STUDIES

    SBC: INSIGHTFUL CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This SBIR proposes to develop software for validly inferring causality from longitudinal observational data. Such data arise for example in epidemiologic studies, where an important goal is to determine how a treatment affects disease. Often treatments occur over time. Treatment decisions are based on other variables which also affect disease. Standard analysis ...

  3. A BRAIN ANATOMY MEASUREMENT AND NORMALIZATION TOOL

    SBC: INSIGHTFUL CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (Applicant's abstract verbatim): Identification and segmentation of the constituent parts of a human brain in three-dimensional (3-D) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) studies is a starting point for much of the current research into human brain structure and function. Accurate segmentation and registration allows clinicians and researchers to track and ...

  5. MENDELIAN MODEL BASED INFERENCE IN STATISTICAL GENETICS

    SBC: INSIGHTFUL CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    We will develop S+Gene, a comprehensive, easy-to-use toolkit for analyzing human genetic data. We will include the two main algorithms for exact linkage analysis: the Elston-Stewart algorithm which allows for large pedigrees, and the Lander-Green algorithm which allows for a large number of marker loci. Both algorithms will include pairwise and multipoint linkage analysis, and allow for dichotomou ...

  7. FRACTAL MODELING OF BIOMEDICAL TIME SERIES IN S-PLUS

    SBC: INSIGHTFUL CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    The goal of this project is to provide a comprehensive state-of-the-art software package, S+FRACTAL for modeling and data analysis of fractal processes. The overall implementation will be in the S-PLUS object oriented language. The specific aim of the software is to provide comprehensive and effective tools for estimating deterministic or stochastic fractal model parameters and to encourage resear ...

  8. PHEROMONE/ACARICIDE MATRIX CONTROLS LYME DISEASE VECTOR

    SBC: IPM Development Company Inc.            Topic: N/A

    IPM Technologies, Inc. will produce a formulation that will attract and kill nymphs and adults of the deer tick, Ixodes scapularis in the laboratory and in field trials. The target species, blacklegged tick transmits Lyme disease, two kinds of ehrlichiosis, and human babesiosis in the U.S. The project will identify specific active chemicals, optimize their formulation, screen for activity against ...

  10. WORKING WITH PARENTS WHO HAVE COGNITIVE LIMITATIONS

    SBC: IRIS MEDIA INC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): People with developmental disabilities are increasingly assuming typical adult roles and responsibilities such as employee, community citizen, and neighbor. Perhaps the greatest challenge for people with cognitive disabilities, however, is in the role of parent. Families where one or both parents have cognitive disabilities can be successful if supports are ava ...
