Space research gives birth to new ultrasound tools for health care in orbit, on Earth
Date:6/23/2011

ource-scarce communities and health-care systems, we are successfully building upon the innovative ultrasound and telecommunication technologies developed by Dr. Dulchavsky for NSBRI and NASA and integrating their capabilities into the national health and education systems.

"By empowering local personnel to offer affordable, immediate, accurate, portable imaging, we facilitate earlier and more effective diagnosis, treatment and follow-up of patients on a broader basis and in a more sustainable manner."

Some of the countries in which the ultrasound techniques are being implemented to foster sustainable primary health-care development are Mozambique, Lesotho, Madagascar, India, Brazil and Nicaragua, with programs planned in Honduras, Congo and Malaysia. Tele-ultrasound has also been performed by Dulchavsky's team on Mount Everest and in the high Arctic Circle. During the past four years, Dulchavsky and Neri gave regular updates about ultrasound potentials at the United Nations' Economic and Social Council and the Observatory for Cultural and Audiovisual Communication in the Mediterranean and in the World InfoPoverty conferences in Geneva and New York.

In addition to Dulchavsky's work, the NSBRI Smart Medical Systems and Technology Team portfolio contains projects developing other innovative ultrasound technologies. One project is developing an ultrasound system to measure bone density and quality and accelerate fracture healing. Another project is developing a system for bloodless tumor removal, internal bleeding treatment and kidney stone reduction.
