Endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS) is a technique that uses ultrasound along with bronchoscope to visualize airway wall and structures adjacent to it. Pneumothorax is a known complication fro...
This study will analyze spectral features of the radiofrequency of lung tumors in ex-vivo human lungs. The resected specimens will be evaluated using the spectrum analysis to determine the...
SPECIFIC STUDY AIMS 1. To evaluate congruence between pelvic anatomical structures segmented on MRI and/or CT scans co-registered with transperineal US scans acquired with an optic...
This study evaluates the movement of the diaphragm (which is the main muscle used for breathing). It will compare two ultrasound modalities: linear ultrasound versus curvilinear ultrasound...
The purpose of this study is to compare the yield of two methods for obtaining a lung tissue sample: Procedure #1: standard fiberoptic bronchoscopy (FB) with fluoroscopy, and Procedure #2:...
High-frequency array transducers can provide higher imaging resolution than traditional transducers, thus resolving smaller features and producing finer images. Commercially available ultrasonic trans...
In spatial spectrum estimation, difference co-array can provide extra degrees-of-freedom (DOFs) for promoting parameter identifiability and parameter estimation accuracy. For the sake of acquiring as ...
Infections have been linked to inadequately-reprocessed flexible bronchoscopes, and recent investigations determined that pathogen transmission occurred even when bronchoscope cleaning and disinfectio...
Ultrasound methods for kidney stone imaging suffer from poor sensitivity and size overestimation. The study objective was to demonstrate feasibility of non-linear ultrasound beamforming methods for st...
This work aims at creating 3D freehand ultrasound reconstructions from 2D probes with image-based tracking, therefore not requiring expensive or cumbersome external tracking hardware. Existing model-b...
The simultaneous analysis of multiple samples of TISSUES or CELLS from BIOPSY or in vitro culture that have been arranged in an array format on slides or microchips.
The simultaneous analysis, on a microchip, of multiple samples or targets arranged in an array format.
MOLECULAR BIOLOGY techniques used in the diagnosis of disease. Included are such techniques as IN SITU HYBRIDIZATION of chromosomes for CYTOGENETIC ANALYSIS; OLIGONUCLEOTIDE ARRAY SEQUENCE ANALYSIS of gene expression patterns in disease states; identification of pathogenic organisms by analysis of species specific DNA sequences; and detection of mutations with POLYMERASE CHAIN REACTION.
A technique encompassing morphometry, densitometry, neural networks, and expert systems that has numerous clinical and research applications and is particularly useful in anatomic pathology for the study of malignant lesions. The most common current application of image cytometry is for DNA analysis, followed by quantitation of immunohistochemical staining.
Methods developed to aid in the interpretation of ultrasound, radiographic images, etc., for diagnosis of disease.
