Novel Device for Ultrasound-assisted IV placement
SummaryIntravenous (IV) lines are placed over 200 million times per year, but difficulties occur in securing proper placement in a large percentage of cases, approximately 20-30%. Oregon Health & Science University researchers have developed a novel device to allow for easier execution of ultrasound-guided IV placement. Technology OverviewIV lines...

Nanoparticle ultrasound contrast agents with high acoustic activity
SummaryContrast-enhanced ultrasound allows for low-cost minimally-invasive imaging; however, the size of typical contrast reagents prevents them from penetrating tumors thereby limiting their utility for cancer diagnostic and therapeutic purposes (theranostics). Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) researchers have developed novel nanoparticle...
