System & Method for Direct Fabrication of Micro/Macro Scale Objects in a Vacuum Using Electromagnetic Steering

This new materials processing technology allows metal and ceramic parts to be manufactured in three dimensions by additive deposition of material, either in atmosphere or in a vacuum. The scale is on the order of the powder size and can be as small as one micron. The deposition rate can be orders of magnitude greater than vapor deposition, which is the current vacuum fabrication technology for devices.

Software for MIAIR (Mutual Information Affine Image Registration)

This program permits the automatic registration (spatial realignment) of 2D and 3D mono- and multi-modal medical images. In its current form it uses Mutual Information as the similarity measure. It supports multi-resolution schemes and transformations up to 12 degrees of freedom.

Software for Adaptive Basis Non-Rigid Registration Algorithm

This program permits the automatic non-rigid registration (spatial realignment) of 2D and 3D mono-and multi modal images.

Software, NR3D for optical-flow based non-rigid registration algorithm

This program permits the automatic non-rigid registration (spatial realignment) of 2D and 3D mono-modal medical images. The algorithm is based on optical flow principles.

Laser Range Scanning for Cortical Surface Registration & Deformation Tracking

This technology is fundamentally a new way to align a patient in an image-guided surgery system (registration) without the use of fiducial markers on the cranium exterior. The system utilizes laser range scanning technology, the natural features on the cortical surface, and the corresponding natural features derived from the patient's preoperative magnetic resonance tomograms. In addition, the technology is amenable to measuring deformation (brain shift) for use within a mathematical model-based strategy for shift compensation.

Adjustable Universal Platform for Surgical Navigation, Approach, and Implantation

A surgical platform usable for performing a surgical procedure. In one embodiment, the surgical platform comprises a base portion configured to receive at least one probe; a plurality of adjustable legs configured to support the base portion, each adjustable legs having a first end portion and an opposite, second end potion defining a length therebetween; and at least one movable portion configured to adjust the length of at least one adjustable leg.

Trimodal Handheld Probe Based on Raman Spectroscopy and Confocal Imaging for Cancer Detection

This technology relates to a device and method for non-invasive evaluation of a target of interest of a living subject, and in particular to devices and methods that integrate confocal imaging with confocal Raman spectroscopy, for non-invasive evaluation of the biochemical compositions and morphological details of normal and cancerous skin lesions of a living subject.

Helical Peristaltic Nanopump for BioMEMS Devices

A metering rotary nanopump for driving BioMEMS and microfluidic systems.

High Energy - Density Hydraulic Accumulator

Vanderbilt inventors propose an inexpensive and easy to manufacture hydraulic accumulator. The proposed hydraulic accumulator technology is intended for energy storage. It is superior to current alternatives in that it provides a simple, efficient and relatively cheap method for storing a large amount of energy in a relatively small volume and mass. One example of its application would be in regenerative braking of passenger vehicles (hydraulic hybrid).

Optical Stimulation of the Auditory Nerve

A cochlear implant placed in a cochlea of a living subject for stimulating the auditory system of the living subject, where the auditory system comprises auditory neurons. In one embodiment, the cochlear implant includes a plurality of light sources, {L.sub.i}, placeable distal to the cochlea, each light source, L.sub.1, being operable independently and adapted for generating an optical energy, E.sub.i, wherein i=1, . . . , N, and N is the number of the light sources, and delivering means placeable in the cochlea and optically coupled to the plurality of light sources, {L.sub.i}, such that in operation, the optical energies {E.sub.i} generated by the plurality of light sources {L.sub.i} are delivered to target sites, {G.sub.i}, of auditory neurons, respectively, wherein the target sites G.sub.1 and G.sub.N of auditory neurons are substantially proximate to the apical end and the basal end of the cochlea, respectively.

System for Stabilizing Phase of a Picosecond Laser Sysem to an RF Accelerator

The invention relates to an improved method and system for synchronizing signals in a particle accelerator system. In one embodiment, a method and system is disclosed whereby a phase of laser pulses are monitored, and a high-frequency signal is adjusted as necessary to be substantially in-phase with the laser pulses. In another embodiment, a method and system is disclosed whereby a phase of an electromagnetic field in an electron gun is monitored, and a high-frequency signal is adjusted as necessary to be substantially in-phase with the electromagnetic field.

Functional Polymorphism in IL7R is Significantly Associated with Multiple Sclerosis

This technology has identified a genetic marker to aid in the diagnosis of patients with multiple sclerosis as well as to identify patients whom have an increased risk of developing the disease.

Algorithm for Age Related Macular Degeneration Prediction

Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of blindness in elderly patients in developed countries, affecting approximately 7.5 million Americans. Recently several genetic and environmental factors have been implicated as susceptibility factors. We have developed an algorithm which can incorporate all of the risk factors a patient may have and determine a risk value for which they may be susceptible for developing AMD. Currently there is no predictive test for identifying individuals that are at risk for developing AMD rather individuals are screened after the age of 60 for the presence of the disease. This test would allow individuals who are at risk of developing AMD to be identified prior to onset of the disease so that preventative steps may be taken and delay or prevent AMD from occurring.
