Abstract
GEO-CENTERS, INC. PROPOSES TO DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF USING A LATERAL WAVE DETECTOR TO LOCATE SMALL NON-METALLIC BODIES IN HUMANS. THE PROPOSED CONCEPT HAS A FIXED TRANSMITTER PROE ON THE SURFACE AND A MOVEABLE RECEIVER WHICH PICKS UP THE LATERAL WAVE REFLECTIONS FROM THE SMALL BODY. A MODEL BASED STUDY USING SMALL SPHERICAL BODIES IN TISSUE WILL YIELD THE BASIC INFORMATION FOR DETECTION. OTHER FOREIGN BODIES AND CLUTTER WILL BE ADDED TO PROVE DETECTION IN THE PRESENCE OF OTHER REFLECTORS. THE RESULTS ON THE SPHERICAL MODEL WILL BE COMBINED WITH THE KNOWN PROPERTIES OF LATERAL WAVES TO PRODUCE A RESULT CHARACTERISTIC FOR THE ENTIRE SYSTEM.
