Application of Low Intensity Pulsed Ultrasound for Microbial Cell Stimulation in Bioprocesses And Development of Carbon-based Silver Covered Filters for Microbial Cells Removal in Water SystemsDownload
Renewable resources with their potential application in food industry, pharmacy, energy sector, chemistry, material science etc. can be a major player in our everyday lives. Apart from sustainability in the production, the use of bioprocesses in the energy production and waste water treatment can...
Application of Ultrasound to Guide Pedicle Screw Insertion during Scoliosis Surgery: a Feasibility StudyDownload
This thesis presents an experimental study of a bovine vertebra using transmission and pulse-echo methods and a preliminary investigation to guide a screw insertion into a pedicle using TomoScan phased array unit. The results show the cancellous bone has higher attenuation than the cortical bone...
Application of ultrasound to measure coronal curvature and vertebral rotation in adolescent idiopathic scoliosisDownload
Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) is a three-dimensional (3D) spinal deformity occurring during adolescence with no known causes. Both the coronal curvature and vertebral axial rotation (VAR) are important parameters to assess the severity, predict the progression and evaluate the outcomes of...
Optical imaging has long been a gold standard for medical imaging. However, due to the high optical scattering in tissues, it has not been possible to image deeper than a few wavelengths with a useful resolution. Photoacoustic imaging - the use of short-pulsed lasers to induce an ultrasound...
Computer Simulation of Diagnostic and Therapeutic Applications of Ultrasound Propagation in Biological TissuesDownload
Ultrasound has been widely utilized in diagnostic and therapeutic clinical practices. Further development of the application of ultrasound in the clinical practices requires comprehensive understanding of the physics of ultrasound propagation in biological tissues. In this research, computer...
Estimation of genetic and phenotypic parameters for ultrasound and carcass merit traits in crossbred beef cattleDownload
Ultrasound measurements of 852 crossbred steers along with carcass merit measurements on 756 of them were used to examine their genetic and phenotypic parameters. Traits including ultrasound backfat thickness (UBF), ultrasound ribeye area (UREA), ultrasound marbling (UMAR), carcass weight (CWT),...
Infant developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) is a common condition in which the ball and socket joint of the hip is not formed properly. Current diagnosis techniques are controversial and lack firm agreement between physicians. Diagnosis is based on a joint application of physical examination...
Numerical Characterization of Ultrasound Elastography for the Early Detection of Deep Tissue InjuriesDownload
Deep tissue injuries - casually termed "bedsores" or "pressure ulcers" - are a type of wound often suffered as secondary injuries in persons with reduced mobility such as those with spinal cord injuries, the elderly, and people with multiple sclerosis. Deep tissue injuries form when excess...
Guided waves have been successfully used to characterize long bone properties, however the layer of soft tissue covering bone must be considered for guided wave technology to be clinically viable. We analyzed the impact of soft tissue through in vitro experiments on a cortical bone plate with and...
The Reliability and In-exercise Reduction of Frontal and Rotational Ultrasound Measurements for Adolescents with Idiopathic Scoliosis Performing Scoliosis-specific ExercisesDownload
Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis (AIS) is a spine deformity of unknown cause characterized by abnormal lateral curvature (Cobb angle>10°) with vertebral rotation. AIS affects 2-3% of all adolescents whom are likely to progress during their growth spurt preceding skeletal maturity. The Scoliosis...
