High-strength and Corrosion Resistant Alloy for Patient-Specific Bioresorbable Bone Fixation Hardware
TS-042526 — Novel ternary and quaternary Mg-Zn-Ca-based alloys and a heat treatment process for producing bioresorbable bone fixation implants with improved mechanical and corrosion properties
Mg-Zn-Ca-based alloys are the most promising alloy system for bone implant applications mainly due to their superior biocompatibility. For fixation applications, the ideal is a material strong enough to hold while healing (2-4 months) yet being fully resorbed after the bones have healed (6-24 mont…

Virtual image generation of immunohistochemical stained tissue sections using an artificial neural network
TS-039781 — Realistic immunohistochemical stained tissue section databases for training, certification, and machine standards.
Immunohistochemistry (IHC) is used to determine antigen distribution in a tissue and is widely used for diagnosis of cancers and other diseases. Diagnostic and research laboratories in the United States use locally devised IHC tissue slide preparation and scanning protocols to check scanner perfor…

Perivascular Drug Delivery Nanoplatform for Preventing Restenosis After Open Surgery
TS-039004 — Pericelle: a nanoparticle based perivascular drug delivery system to prevent stenosis and failure in vascular reconstruction surgeries
Imaging and re-intervention procedures, necessary to maintain open blood vessels following vascular reconstruction surgery, are expensive. For example, the cost of maintenance for an atriovenous (AV) fistula used in hemodialysis access has been estimated at near a staggering $15,000/year. In bypas…

Technologies Advancing the Field of Tissue Stiffness Measurement (Elastography)
TS-014919 — An array of technologies advancing device design, analytic techniques and scope of application of magnetic resonance elastography (MRE)
Magnetic resonance elastography (MRE) combines MRI imaging with sound waves, creating a visual map showing and quantitating the stiffness of body tissue. MRE's initial application has been to the liver, where chronic diseases such as Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (estimated background prev…

Personalized Patient Cooling Device
TS-014890 — A completely pneumatic, multi-directional, bladeless, personal cooling device for hospital patients
In order to provide quality patient care and appropriately manage patient comfort, medical facilities could benefit from a cost-effective method of allowing patients to cool themselves. Due to the risk of spreading pathogens and contaminants, conventional fans are often disallowed in medical envir…
