Dual Scan Photoacoustic Mammoscope
Use light to listen for breast cancer. As strange as it sounds ultrasound images can be generated using light. In photoacoustic imaging tissue is heated by exposure to light from a fast-pulse laser. The thermal elastic expansion of the tissue creates an acoustic wave which can be detected and imaged by a ultrasonic transducer. The process eliminates...

NeuroSTREAM
This program measures brain atrophy using Fluid-attenuated inversion recovery (FLAIR) images of the lateral ventricular volume (LVV) region of the brain. High quality MRI scans are used to measure brain atrophy. However these scans are not always available or current but it is vital to know the patients status with regards to brain atrophy. This...
