Task Wideband Single Crystal Transducer for Bone Characterization (Completed)
Last Published:  04/20/22 11:43:24 AM (Central)
Short Title: Wideband Bone
Responsible HRP Element: Exploration Medical Capability
Collaborating Org(s):
Funding Status: Completed - Task completed and produced a deliverable
Procurement Mechanism(s):
  1. Demonstrate pulse-echo performance capability of Nautilus transducer through ex vivo tissue to simulate operation for spine or hip measurements with a single probe.
  2. Demonstrate the advantage of the prove over conventional probes through bandwidth capability and collection of multiple relevant ultrasound parameters with a single probe.
  3. Provide quantitative correlation between the trabecular micro-structure and received ultrasound signal through comparative analysis with other direct physiological measurements.
  4. Complete packaging and electrical tuning of probe for integration with current NASA ultrasound systems to show adaptability.

Integration/Unique Aspects:

The transducer is being developed for use with the Flexible Ultrasound System (FUS)
