Urethral Attenuator - Urethra Sparing Applicator for Brachytherapy
Tech ID: kam001143IntroductionHigh dose rate prostate brachytherapy is a common treatment for prostate cancer. Unfortunately, the radiation used during this procedure can irritate and/or injure the urethra since the urethra runs through the prostate. Irritation and/or injury to the urethra can cause short-term problems, including increased urinary ...

Device for Advanced Functional Brain Monitoring With and Without Simultaneous Brain Fluid Drainage - Ventrode
Tech ID: ros000984IntroductionPlacing an external ventricular drain is commonly the first, life-saving procedure performed on many patients with moderate to severe brain injury or an obstruction of brain fluid. Furthermore, surface electroencephalography (EEG), which uses electrodes placed on a patient’s scalp, is used to monitor electrical s...

Patient Size Dependent Dose for Consistent Low Contrast Detectability in Abdominal CT
Tech Id: zho000825IntroductionAlthough CT scans have become a prominent diagnostic tool, the public has increased concerns about radiation exposure, especially the dose to pediatric patients. The result is a move towards reducing radiation dose to the minimum required for a particular patient size, lesion size and discernable contrast need. Despite...

Accommodative 3D Virtual Reality Magnification Micro Display Lense and Camera System
Tech ID: dan001109IntroductionEndoscopes and exoscopes are used for a multiplicity of applications in medicine. Three-dimensional (3D) scopes were recently introduced and allow for a sense of depth not possible with two-dimensional (2D) systems. Unfortunately, displays that present 3D images on a 2D screen may cause ocular fatigue, headaches, nause...

Modification to the Existing Guidewire Design
Tech ID: sab001127IntroductionIn a number of medical procedures, guidewires are unintentionally retained within a patient. At present, the only way to prevent this from happening requires the proceduralist to keep control of the distal end of the wire so that it does not accidentally slip inside. The risk of such events increases owing to Human Fac...

Endotracheal Intubation Employing Computer-Guided Tracheal Targeting and On-Demand Endotracheal Tube Release - R-Mac -
Tech ID: ros001018IntroductionThere is a great and vital need in medicine to protect a patient’s upper airway. Any compromise of airflow will lead to severe harm or death within minutes. Generally, securing airflow through the upper airway is established by successful placement of an endotracheal tube (ETT) through the mouth and into the trac...

Detection and Quantification of Brain Motion and Pulsatility - BrainPulse
Tech ID: ros000989IntroductionThe cyclic perfusion of the brain with arterial blood induces “brain pulsations,” which are predictable expansions and relaxations of the brain. Brain injury leads to tissue density changes (“swelling” or “congestion”) of various degrees depending on injury location and the extent of...

Improved Image Guidance for Coronary Stent Deployment
Tech ID: clo000020IntroductionIncreasing numbers of percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasties (PTCAs) are being performed in the United States. Unfortunately, restenosis, or narrowing, of the dilated segment occurs in a large percentage of patients who undergo a PTCA. Coronary stent placement after PTCA provides a luminal scaffolding that ha...
