  1. Ultrasound Exposimetry Using Liquid Crystal Plates

    SBC: SANTEC SYSTEMS INC            Topic: N/A

    Liquid crystal-based sonosensitive plates will be investigated for rapid determination of spatial distributions of temporal average intensities for diagnostic ultrasound beams, including real-time imaging and Doppler modes. From such distributions, exposure parameters such as SPTA (spatial peak-temporal average) and SATA (spatial average-temporal average) can be determined. In this approach, ultra ...

  2. Multimedia Program for the Promotion of Breast Self Exam

    SBC: Softpat            Topic: N/A

    Most women do not practice breast self examination (BSE) even though 90% of all lumps are identified by the woman and BSE has the potential for early identification of potential malignancies. Lack of confidence in being able to perform the procedure and perceived invulnerability to breast cancer are documented barriers for women. The project would develop an interactive video program for rural wom ...

  3. Enhanced Laser Energy Delivery by Catheter Multiplexing

    SBC: Spectranetics            Topic: N/A

    The occurrence of arterial dissection associated with percutaneous excimer laser coronary angioplasty (PELCA) is a significant technical consideration that may limit medical applications. By developing a system of sequential fiber activation for fiber optic catheters, in which only a portion of the fiber optics carry energy at any one time, arterial dissection may be reduced by obtaining the same ...

  4. EFFECT OF REDUCED SPECKLE ON ULTRASOUND LESION DETECTION

    SBC: TETRAD CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    THE USE OF ULTRASONIC IMAGING FOR THE DETECTION AND DIAGNOSIS OF A VARIETY OF CANCERS IS PRESENTLY LIMITED BY SPECKLE, WHICH TENDS TO REDUCE THE RESOLUTION AND DETECTION OF LOW-CONTRAST REGIONS. AN IMAGE-PROCESSING ALGORITHM HAS BEEN DESIGNED THAT GREATLY REDUCES THE SPECKLE IN ULTRASONIC IMAGES AND, AT THE SAME TIME, PRESERVES THE SHARP DETAILS ASSOCIATED WITH BOUNDARIES AND WELL-DEFINED REFLECTO ...

  5. IN VIVO PROTEIN ENGINEERING SYSTEM

    SBC: THERMOGEN,INC.            Topic: N/A

    THERMOGEN, INC., WILL DEVELOP AN IN VIVO PROTEIN ENGINEERINGSYSTEM ALLOWING RAPID, RANDOM SHUFFLING OF PROTEIN DOMAINS TO PRODUCE NOVEL PROTEINS FORMED BY GENE FUSION. THIS SYSTEM WILL BE DESIGNED TO ALLOW GENERAL PRODUCTION OF CHIMERIC GENES WITH ALTERED FUNCTIONS, MAPPING OF FUNCTIONALDOMAINS IN A TARGET PROTEIN, AND CONSTRUCTION OF RANDOM LINKER INSERTIONS TO PROBE PROTEIN STRUCTURE. PHASE I WI ...

  6. Selective Sensor for Prediction of Neonatal Jaundice

    SBC: Transducer Research Inc.            Topic: N/A

    An electrochemical sensor system will be developed to measure carbon monoxide in the 0-10 part-per-million range in the presence of 0-200 ppm of hydrogen gas. Since carbon monoxide is generated during heme degradation and exhaled, this system will be useful for the prediction of neonatal jaundice. However, electrochemical measurements are often confounded by exhaled hydrogen form intestinal microf ...

  7. DRIVING PERFORMANCE ANALYSIS SYSTEM

    SBC: Virtual Worlds, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE PRINCIPAL OBJECTIVE IS THE COMMERCIAL DEVELOPMENT OF A VIRTUAL REALITY SIMULATOR TO ASSESS DRIVING PERFORMANCE IN PERSONS WITH VISUAL FIELD LOSS. THIS INTERACTIVE SIMULATOR WILL GIVE SUBJECTS THE SENSATION THAT THEY ARE DRIVING IN A VIRTUAL WORLD WITH THE USE OF WIDE- FIELD DRIVING SCENES, FORCE-FEEDBACK THROUGH THE STEERING WHEEL, AND STEREO SOUND. THE SUBJECT'S DRIVING RESPONSES WILL BE RECO ...

  8. PERCEPTUAL ASSESSMENT/IMPROVEMENT OF THE OLDER DRIVER

    SBC: Visual Resources, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    OLDER ADULTS HAVE MORE TRAFFIC CONVICTIONS AND ACCIDENTS AND INCUR MORE FATALITIES PER MILE DRIVEN THAN ANY OTHER AGE GROUP. THE AIM OF THE RESEARCH IS TWO-FOLD: 1) TO TAKE THE RESEARCH PARADIGMS DEMONSTRATED TO BE RELATED TO A VARIETY OF EVERYDAY FUNCTIONAL VISION PROBLEMS IN OLDER ADULTS AND EMBODY THEM IN A SCREENING/TRAINING DEVICE WHICH CAN BE USED BY PHYSICIANS AND EYE-CARE SPECIALISTS IN DI ...

  9. CONTINUOUS EMISSION MONITOR FOR HALOGENATED COMPOUNDS

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE EMISSION OF HALOGEN CONTAINING POLLUTANTS FROM A VARIETY OF POWER GENERATING, WASTE PROCESSING, CHEMICAL PRODUCTION, AND SOLVENT USING INDUSTRIES IS AN ENVIRONMENTAL CONCERN OF MAJOR SIGNIFICANCE. INORGANIC HALOGEN SPECIES, INCLUDING HYDROGEN CHLORIDE AND HYDROGEN FLUORIDE, REPRESENT MAJOR POTENTIAL HEALTH THREATS TO BOTH HUMAN, ANIMAL, AND PLANT COMMUNITIES. ORGANIC HALOGENATED COMPOUNDS (HOC ...
