Study: SONAS Ultrasound for Detecting Stroke SONAS Ultrasound for Detecting Stroke

The purpose of this research study is to test a new medical device, called SONAS. The SONAS device is a portable, battery-powered ultrasound device to detect strokes in the prehospital env...

Evaluation of the Interest of Ultra-high Frequency Doppler Ultrasound (UFDU) in the Surgical Management of Patients Operated in an Awake Condition for a Cerebral Tumor

In brain tumor surgery we are confronted mainly with two types of difficulties: (i) the identification of the tumor and its limitations in relation to the healthy brain; (ii) the identific...

Magnetic Resonance Temperature Imaging & Imaging-Guided Laser Induced Thermal Therapy for Treatment of Metastatic Brain Tumors

The goal of this clinical research study is to learn about a new therapy device called the Visualase® Thermal Therapy System (a device that uses a laser to kill tumor cells and is guided ...

Accuracy of Depth and Landmark Assessment Using Neuraxial Ultrasound Devices

The purpose of this study is to determine if a handheld ultrasound device helps in the placement of labor epidurals by studying the accuracy of the Accuro Handheld Ultrasound device compar...

MRI Predictors of Response to Tumor Treating Fields

Patients with glioblastoma, an aggressive brain tumor, are recommended to undergo treatment with tumor treating fields using the Optune device as part of standard of care therapy. While un...

Intraoperative Strain Elastosonography in Brain Tumor Surgery.

Sonoelastography is an ultrasound imaging technique able to assess mechanical properties of tissues. Strain elastography (SE) is a qualitative sonoelastographic modality with a wide range of clinical ...

Prescreening for Osteoporosis With Quantitative Ultrasound in Postmenopausal White Women.

Calcaneal quantitative ultrasound (QUS) is a readily accessible and radiation-free alternative to dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA) for assessing bone mineral density (BMD). Results obtained from...

Trans-cranial MR-guided Focused Ultrasound Surgery for brain tumor ablation: are we ready for this challenging treatment?

Non-invasive sensitive brain tumor detection using dual-modality bioimaging nanoprobe.

Despite decades of efforts, non-invasive sensitive detection of small malignant brain tumors still remains challenging. Here we report a dual-modality 124I-labeled gold nanostar (124I-GNS) probe for s...

Numerical simulation of the focal region modulation to realize uniform temperature distribution during high-intensity focused ultrasound brain tumor therapy.

The temperature during the brain tumor therapy using high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) should be controlled strictly. This research aimed at realizing uniform temperature distribution in the fo...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Multi-channel hearing devices typically used for patients who have tumors on the COCHLEAR NERVE and are unable to benefit from COCHLEAR IMPLANTS after tumor surgery that severs the cochlear nerve. The device electrically stimulates the nerves of cochlea nucleus in the BRAIN STEM rather than the inner ear as in cochlear implants.

Instrumentation consisting of hardware and software that communicates with the BRAIN. The hardware component of the interface records brain signals, while the software component analyzes the signals and converts them into a command that controls a device or sends a feedback signal to the brain.

Surgical insertion of an electronic hearing device (AUDITORY BRAIN STEM IMPLANTS) with electrodes to the cochlea nucleus in the BRAIN STEM rather than to the inner ear as in COCHLEAR IMPLANTATION.

Removal of a MEDICAL DEVICE from the market due to the identification of an intrinsic property of the device that results in a serious risk to public health.

The use of ultrasound to guide minimally invasive surgical procedures such as needle ASPIRATION BIOPSY; DRAINAGE; etc. Its widest application is intravascular ultrasound imaging but it is useful also in urology and intra-abdominal conditions.
