Space research institute honors Sen. Hutchison with Pioneer Award
Date:3/19/2012

cated in the BioScience Research Collaborative on the Rice University campus.

Among the science and technology demonstrations featured were two NSBRI-funded projects that have developed new uses for ultrasound. A research project based at the Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit developed techniques that streamline user training and help experts on the ground guide non-physician astronauts in space to perform ultrasound exams. The research team also developed an ultrasound imagery catalog of the human body. The techniques and a spin-off catalog are already in use on Earth.

The second ultrasound project, based at the University of Washington, developed technology that detects kidney stones with ultrasound imaging and provides treatment by pushing stones with focused ultrasound toward the kidney's exit so they will pass naturally. This technology, which is now waiting for FDA approval to begin clinical trials, could alter the way kidney stones are treated on Earth.

"As demonstrated here today, NSBRI research and technologies are not only benefiting space travelers, but they are also improving health care on Earth," said Dr. Bobby R. Alford, chairman of the NSBRI Board of Directors.

NSBRI, funded by NASA, is a consortium of institutions studying the health risks related to long-duration spaceflight and developing the medical technologies needed for long missions. NSBRI's science, technology and education projects take place at more than 60 institutions across the United States.

NSBRI's Pioneer Award, in its fourth year, recognizes individuals whose efforts and accomplishments have blazed new trails on behalf of the Institute, its partnership with NASA and the space biomedical community at large.
