Short Title: Stones in Analogs
Responsible HRP Element: Exploration Medical Capability
Collaborating Org(s):
National Space Biomedical Research Institute (NSBRI)
Funding Status: Completed - Task completed and produced a deliverable
Procurement Mechanism(s):
  1. Develop ultrasound imaging protocols to enhance kidney stone detection in space.

  2. Manipulate existing elastic wave and bubble dynamic models to aid in refining kidney stone detection protocols.

  3. Determine how hypobaric and hyperbaric conditions alter the TA.

  4. Determine how urine pH and stone type affect the TA.

  5. Determine how exposure to gas concentrations unique to the space travel vehicles alters the TA.
