New Non-invasive Methods to Learn about Arteries and Some Diseases

The main objective of this research is to develop a low cost non-invasive method to evaluate arteries and their interfaces. The goal is for the procedures to be based upon clearly understood physical models and applicable to all people. "Non-invasive" excludes techniques using catheters, injection of dyes, surgical procedures, and X-rays. "Low cost and applicable to all people" (including those with metallic implants such as pacemakers) eliminates Nuclear Magnetic Imaging techniques. The discussion reviews the previous history and current status of research on applicable techniques. This is expanded to new methods by showing how additional measuring and signal processing techniques can be used to evaluate many useful artery parameters and use the measured results to locate inflammation and partial blockages, detect problems with some organs before physical symptoms are observed, determine the elasticity of the artery organs, see the performance of heart valves, and see the effects of certain drugs, nutrients, and treatment modalities. The results can be used as both a diagnostic and a research tool. There are many potential improvements, simplifications, and additional future advances. With one advanced version, it will be possible to detect problems on the outside of an artery (this cannot be done with catheters). There will be an opportunity for discussion.

Biography: Dr. Share, the speaker, is a consultant who has a very broad multidisciplinary technical background. His consulting firm is DAJEM Technology Company. He was also the former CEO of Techwise Enterprises Corporation and he held responsible positions at GTE-Sylvania, Northrop, Norden Systems Raytheon. And RCA. Dr. Share has hands on product development experience as well as theoretical, system level, and program management experience. He functioned as a research engineer, project leader, and system engineer in multiple disciplines. He also developed and taught courses at several universities and at companies. Amongst others, these include Hofstra University, The Polytechnic University, and Touro University. He has worked in different fields and he has applied his knowledge to different disciplines. Amongst others, these include specialized communications, radar, electromagnetic wave propagation, and RF/Microwave component design. This broad background has been applied to develop the concepts in this presentation.

Dr. Share has a Bachelor of Electrical Engineering from the City College of New York with courses in Mechanical, Civil, Thermodynamics and Fluids, a Master of Science Degree in Physics from the Polytechnic University, and a PhD in Electrical Engineering from the New Jersey Institute of Technology. His masters and doctoral research dealt with wave propagation. This formal education was supplemented with extensive additional learning. He was a member of the Association of Old Crows (for electronic warfare), the Armed Forces Communication Electronics Association, and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers plus other professional and honorary societies. His interest in the subject of this talk was sparked while he taught courses at the Biomedical Sciences department at Touro University.
