Pilot study of longitudinal ultrasonic sensor for dynamic volumetric assessment of gastroesophageal reflux

Xuexin Gao; Daniel C. Sadowski; Martin P. Mintchev 2010 Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology, 2010

In patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), esophageal symptoms are traditionally diagnosed by monitoring the contact time between the reflux content and the esophagus using multichannel intraluminal impedance and pH (MII-pH) catheters. However, esophageal catheter for quantifying the volume of reflux content is still lacking. The present work proposes an innovative method to develop a longitudinal ultrasonic catheter and an ...


Transesophageal Phased Array for Imaging the Heart

J. Souquet; P. Hanrath; L. Zitelli; P. Kremer; B. A. Langenstein; M. Schluter IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering, 1982

A 3.5 MHz phased array has been developed for imaging the heart through the esophagus. The ultrasonic probe is fitted on the distal end of an Olympus gastroscope. Transesophageal images of the heart were obtained on ten patients. This paper describes the design and realization of the phased array and presents some clinical results obtained on patients.

A new type of artificial larynx using a PZT ceramics vibrator as a sound source

K. Ooe; T. Fukuda; F. Arai IEEE/ASME Transactions on Mechatronics, 2000

Various speech production substitutes which aim to reconstruct speech functions have been developed and used practically, for vocalization- handicapped persons. However, current speech production substitutes have problems, and it is hoped that perfect speech production substitutes are developed. We pay attention to a PZT ceramics vibrator as a sound source of an artificial larynx. We try to produce the artificial ...


Body-Conducted Speech Recognition in Speech Support System for Disorders

Shunsuke Ishimitsu; Kouhei Oda; Masashi Nakayama 2009 Fourth International Conference on Innovative Computing, Information and Control (ICICIC), 2009

People with speech disabilities face communication problems in daily conversation. They communicate with substitute speech, which is not used with enough frequency in daily conversation to be readily understood. Therefore, we have proposed the speech support system with body-conducted speech recognition. The system generates retrieval speech via a transfer function from body-conducted speech when the system uses recognition to decide ...
