IEEE Spectrum, 1990

A technological development that came out of World War II but attracted little notice at the time is discussed. It is the driven-shield technique for making measuring instruments with high-input impedances, a concept that has proved extremely valuable to the modern semiconductor industry. It was first put to commercial use in Joseph F. Keithley's phantom repeater as a way to ...

Many methods rely on an acoustic radiation force (ARF) push beam to generate shear waves. However, specialized hardware is required to generate the push beams, and the thermal stress that is placed upon the ultrasound system, transducer, and tissue by ...

  • Keithley's phantom repeater: applying wartime technology

    A technological development that came out of World War II but attracted little notice at the time is discussed. It is the driven-shield technique for making measuring instruments with high-input impedances, a concept that has proved extremely valuable to the modern semiconductor industry. It was first put to commercial use in Joseph F. Keithley's phantom repeater as a way to get a signal from extremely small underwater microphones, with capacitances of only a few picofarads, down about 30 cm of shielded cable to an amplifier. The principle of the approach and Keithley's postwar use of it in commercial instruments are described.<<ETX>>

  • Automation of the ACR MRI Low-Contrast Resolution Test Using Machine Learning

    Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a powerful, widespread and indispensable medical imaging modality. The American College of Radiology (ACR) recommends weekly acquisition of phantom images to assess the quality of scanner. Usually, these images must be analyzed by experienced technicians. Automatic analysis of these images would reduce costs and improve repeatability. Some automated methods have been proposed, but the automation of two of the ACR image quality tests remains open problem. Reports on the high- and low- contrast resolution tests are scarce and so far none of the proposed methods produce results robust enough to allow replacing human work. We use Machine Learning to emulate, with high accuracy, the detection of 120 low-contrast structures of ACR phantom by an experienced professional. We used a database with 620 sets of ACR phantom images that were acquired on scanners of different vendors, fields and coils, totaling 74,400 low-contrast structures. Technicians with more than 10 years of experience labeled each structure as `detectable' or `undetectable'. Machine learning algorithms were fed with image features extracted from the structures and their surroundings. Among the five methods we tested, Logistic Regression yielded the largest area under the ROC curve (0.878) and the highest Krippendorff's alpha (0.995). The results achieved in this study are substantially better than those previously reported in the literature. They are also better than the classifications made by junior technicians (with less than 5 years of experience). This indicate that the ACR MRI low-contrast resolution test may be automated using Machine Learning.

  • A high frame-rate and low-cost Elastography system by generating shear waves through continuous vibration of the ultrasound transducer

    Ultrasound shear wave elastography (SWE) utilizes the propagation of induced shear waves to characterize the shear modulus of soft tissue. Many methods rely on an acoustic radiation force (ARF) push beam to generate shear waves. However, specialized hardware is required to generate the push beams, and the thermal stress that is placed upon the ultrasound system, transducer, and tissue by the push beams currently limits the frame-rate to about 1 Hz. This paper presents Probe Oscillation Shear Elastography (PROSE) as an alternative method to measure tissue elasticity, by generating shear waves using a continuous mechanical vibration of an ultrasound transducer, while simultaneously detecting motion with the same transducer under pulse-echo mode. Motion of the transducer during detection produces a compression strain artifact that is coupled with the observed shear waves. A novel symmetric sampling scheme is proposed such that pulse-echo detection events are acquired when the ultrasound transducer returns to the same physical position, allowing the shear waves to be decoupled from the compression artifact. Full field-of- view (FOV) two-dimensional (2D) shear wave speed (SWS) images were obtained by applying a local frequency estimation (LFE) method, capable of generating a 2D map from a single frame of shear wave motion, allowing for an imaging frame rate comparable to the vibration frequency. PROSE was able to produce smooth and accurate shear wave images from three homogeneous phantoms with different moduli, with an effective frame rate of 300Hz. An inclusion phantom study showed that increased vibration frequencies improved the accuracy of inclusion imaging, and allowed targets as small as 6.5 mm to be resolved with good contrast (contrast-to-noise ratio ≥19 dB) between the target and background.

  • Validation of the Polyvinyl Alcohol Cryogel with glycerol as a material for phantoms in magnetic resonance imaging

    Low homogeneity is the main issue of Polyvinyl Alcohol Cryogel phantoms used in medical imaging. To address this problem we verify how addition of glycerol influence properties of Polyvinyl Alcohol Cryogel phantoms in magnetic resonance imaging. We study following factors: glycerol concentration, cryogel concentration and number of freeze-thaw cycles. We conclude that addition of glycerol to the Polyvinyl Alcohol Cryogel decreases spatial variability of its magnetic relaxation times. Number of freeze-thaw cycles has less impact on magnetic relaxation times in cryogel with glycerol as compared with pure Polyvinyl Alcohol Cryogel.

  • Deep Tissue Photoacoustic Imaging Using a Miniaturized 2-D Capacitive Micromachined Ultrasonic Transducer Array

    In this paper, we demonstrate 3-D photoacoustic imaging (PAI) of light absorbing objects embedded as deep as 5 cm inside strong optically scattering phantoms using a miniaturized (4 mm × 4 mm × 500 μm), 2-D capacitive micromachined ultrasonic transducer (CMUT) array of 16 × 16 elements with a center frequency of 5.5 MHz. Two-dimensional tomographic images and 3-D volumetric images of the objects placed at different depths are presented. In addition, we studied the sensitivity of CMUT-based PAI to the concentration of indocyanine green dye at 5 cm depth inside the phantom. Under optimized experimental conditions, the objects at 5 cm depth can be imaged with SNR of about 35 dB and a spatial resolution of approximately 500 μm. Results demonstrate that CMUTs with integrated front-end amplifier circuits are an attractive choice for achieving relatively high depth sensitivity for PAI.

  • A 4-channel RF coil based on a novel dipole-element with eigen-resonant shielding plate for 7-Tesla magnetic resonance imaging

    First imaging tests of a 4-channel RF coil using novel 41 cm-long dipole elements with an eigen-resonant shielding plate in a 7-Tesla magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) system are presented. The proposed 4-channel coil is loaded by a homogeneous phantom to model the human body. Gradient echo images on the transverse, sagittal and coronal planes are acquired in CP<sup>+</sup> mode and compared to the more established 25 cm-long elements. Relative B<sub>1</sub><sup>+</sup> maps for each channel show good separation of transmit sensitivities. The proposed coil exhibits improved image homogeneity on transverse planes due to the broader field distribution, and a large longitudinal field-of-view.

  • Effects of Interpatient Variance on Microwave Breast Images: Experimental Evaluation

    Microwave breast imaging has seen significant developments in recent years, including new clinical trials and formation of a number of spin-out companies. Although many algorithms for microwave breast imaging have been developed, there are significant challenges in translating these algorithms to the clinic. For example, movement due to patient breathing can affect the scan, and both the breast and breast abnormalities vary significantly from patient to patient. As breast density is a known independent risk factor for cancer and cancerous tumours have different shapes and margins to benign tumours, the effect of interpatient variance on the microwave image is important. This work analyses the effect on image quality of tumour shape, size and breast density. Using the diverse and representative BRIGID experimental dataset, images of a variety of tumours are compared to images without tumours present. This work suggests that it is difficult to distinguish images with and without tumours present using existing metrics.
