Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 09/01/05 - 08/31/07

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The objective of this program is to apply proprietary bonded piezoelectric composite multilayer technology to a variety of ultrasound arrays for both imaging and therapy, which are currently limited in their ability to deliver acoustic power to the human body. Focus areas include: 1) conventional imaging a...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 02/18/03 - 01/31/04

DESCRIPTION (Provided by Applicant): The objective of the proposed work is to develop technology which results in probes ultrasound with performance at or near the level of probes designed for diagnostic imaging but with the increased efficiency and power handling capability which is necessary for some applications, such as acoustic radiation fo...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 05/18/94 - 01/31/96

Speckle is a fundamental property of all coherent imaging systems. It reduces contrast resolution and thereby the detectability of low contrast lesions. Speckle is also perceived as a significant distraction and impediment for new applications of ultrasound imaging. TETRAD has demonstrated that a non...

Speckle is a fundamental property of all coherent imaging systems. It reduces contrast resolution and thereby the detectability of low contrast lesions. Speckle is also perceived as a significant distraction and impediment for new applications of ultrasound imaging. TETRAD has demonstrated that a non-linear, iterative algorithm can effectivel...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 09/30/92 - 03/29/94

The goal of this project is to develop an ultrasound imaging method and transducer designs for forward looking guidance of a laser angioplasty catheter. This new technology, which addresses the limitations of current intraluminal imaging devices as on-board guidance, can become a key component of new surgery tools for the treatment of arterial ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 09/29/90 - 05/31/91

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. TETRAD has designed and implemented an image processing algorithm which greatly reduces the speckle in ultrasonic images and, at the same time, preserve...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 08/01/90 - 01/31/92

The goal of the proposed work is to develop an ultrasonic transducer and the associated instrumentation which will be capable of making direct determination which will be capable of making direct determinations of ultrasonic intensity and quantitatively related spatial determinations of ultrasonic intensity and quantitatively related spatial and...
