Seeing Beyond: Real-Time Ultrasound Image Integration In Augmented Reality Based Telementoring, Mandira S. Marambe, Natalia Sanchez-Tamayo, Juan P. Wachs Aug 2018

Seeing Beyond: Real-Time Ultrasound Image Integration In Augmented Reality Based Telementoring, Mandira S. Marambe, Natalia Sanchez-Tamayo, Juan P. Wachs

The Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) Symposium

Ultrasound imaging, when aptly integrated with augmented reality based medical telementoring, may be beneficial as an assistive tool in a range of trauma procedures including removal of foreign objects from blast injuries and central or peripheral venous access. Expected benefits include reduced procedure completion time, higher efficiency, and higher incision accuracy. This paper describes the implementation strategy selected for the integration of real time ultrasound imaging in the trainee view of a telementoring system. The proposed strategy augments the view of the trainee surgeon by displaying the ultrasound image directly below and parallel to the ultrasound transducer. The developed system ...


Optimization Of A High-Speed X-Ray Imaging System For Studying Sprays, Lane E. Schultz, Mikhail N. Slipchenko, Terrence R. Meyer, Wilbert C. Slowman Aug 2016

Optimization Of A High-Speed X-Ray Imaging System For Studying Sprays, Lane E. Schultz, Mikhail N. Slipchenko, Terrence R. Meyer, Wilbert C. Slowman

The Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) Symposium

Spray-based liquid atomization and liquid mixing is critical for development of efficient combustors and drug delivery systems as well as multiple coating-related applications. While optical methods allow characterization of low density regions of sprays, the scattering of optical photons hinders the characterization of a dense core. Unlike optical photons, higher-energy X-ray photons have the capability to penetrate and image the core structure of sprays. Here we characterized temporal and spatial resolution of an X-Ray imaging system based on a commercially available tube source with an anode size of 0.6 mm. For high-speed imaging, a phosphor screen in combination with ...


Portable Pneumatic Demonstrator For Stem Education, Joe Chege, Tyler Helmus, John Lumkes Aug 2014

Portable Pneumatic Demonstrator For Stem Education, Joe Chege, Tyler Helmus, John Lumkes

The Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) Symposium

This project involves the development of a compact and portable pneumatic demonstrator. Using two pneumatic actuators and four solenoid valves, we are able to move an arm on both the X and Y-axes; one actuator for each range of motion. The setup also employs an air pump and a tank to maintain pressure for the actuators. On the actuators there is an arm that holds a camera, a stepper motor and an electromagnet. The stepper motor raises and lowers the electromagnet which is used to pick up objects. The camera is used to automatically identify objects for when the demonstrator ...


Optimization Of Acid Production In Food Waste Via Anaerobic Respiration, Charles Daniels, Raymond Red Corn, Abigail S. Engelberth Phd. Aug 2014

Optimization Of Acid Production In Food Waste Via Anaerobic Respiration, Charles Daniels, Raymond Red Corn, Abigail S. Engelberth Phd.

The Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) Symposium

According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, one third of all food produced in world is wasted; 1.63 * 109 metric tons of nutrition is lost to transportation, contamination, or neglect every year (FAO 2013). This wasted food, however, could be repurposed as a substrate for microbial conversion into useful chemicals. This research is aimed at finding the optimal conditions for bacterial colonies to generate volatile fatty acids (VFAs): resources that are used as solvents, medicines, and chemical intermediates usually generated from petroleum based resources (Drumright et al., 2000) (Roscher 2000) (Kolt et al., 2007 ...
