The ability to deliver configurable myocardial lesions was noted as a critical factor to the success of atrial fibrillation (AF) treatment. This article considers the implementation of time reversal acoustics (TRA) principles for ultrasound focusing using an AF cardiac catheter developed for pulmonary vein isolation. Experiments conducted with a single(More)
Stevens Institute of Technology in cooperation with the DHS Science and Technology Directorate and the U.S. Customs and Border Protection has been investigating engineering solutions to augment the current inspection process at ports of entry in an effort to minimize the threat posed by invasive species. This paper presents the initial results of acoustic(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the epididymis as an alternative anatomical target to the vas deferens for noninvasive male sterilization using therapeutic focused ultrasound. DESIGN Controlled preclinical study. SETTING Canine animal model in an academic research environment. PATIENT(S) Four healthy male mongrel dogs (30-35 kg). INTERVENTION(S) A transducer(More)
INTRODUCTION Conventional surgical vasectomy may lead to complications including bleeding, infection, and scrotal pain. Noninvasive transcutaneous delivery of therapeutic focused ultrasound has previously been shown to thermally occlude the vas deferens. However, skin burns and inconsistent vas occlusion have presented complications. This study uses(More)
Stevens Institute of Technology has been investigating engineering solutions to augment the current inspection process at ports of entry in an effort to minimize the threat posed by invasive species. Stevens has built several sensitive acoustic systems for detection of tiny acoustic/vibrational signals produced by moving insects and tested them in two US(More)
One of the most challenging aspects of port security is to provide protection against surface and underwater threats. In particular, a significant terrorist threat might be posed to the domestic harbors in the form of an explosive device delivered underwater by a scuba diver. Along with improving swimmer detection technology, the question arises of how to(More)
The application of therapeutic ultrasound for the treatment of atrial fibrillation (AF) is investigated. The results of theoretical and experimental investigation of ultrasound ablation catheter are presented. The major components of the catheter are the high power cylindrical piezoelectric element and parabolic balloon reflector. Thermal elevation in the(More)
