Medical device data shared via ultrasound, real-time treatment enabled

http://www.buffalo.edu/news/releases/2013/05/0570.html Navy sonar technology is being miniaturized by University at Buffalo professor Tommaso Melodia to be applied inside the human body to treat diseases like diabetes and heart failure in real time. A network of wireless body sensors that use ultrasounds could be used to wirelessly share information between medical devices implanted in or worn by diabetic/heart failure patients. Previously, researchers focused […]

Bats use of sonar applied in medical ultrasound machines

http://news.discovery.com/tech/innovations-inspired-by-animals-130325.htm Bat sonar has long had an edge over man-made sonar and ultrasound devices, but scientists are working to decrease that gap. Nathan Intrator of Tel Aviv University’s Blavatnik School of Computer Science, in collaboration with Brown University’s Jim Simmons, created mathematical models that improve our understanding of the ultrasound process. “Animals explore pings with […]
