Manufacturing Abdominal Aorta Hydrogel Tissue-Mimicking Phantoms for Ultrasound Elastography Validation Doran S. Mix1, Michael C. Stoner1, Steven W. Day2, Michael S. Richards3 1Division of Vascular Surgery, University of Rochester Medical Center, 2Department of Biomedical Engineering, Rochester Institute of Technology, 3Department of Surgery, University of Rochester Medical Center Here we describe a method to manufacture aneurysmal, aortic tissue-mimicking phantoms for the use in testing ultrasound elastography. The combined use of computer-aided design (CAD) and 3-dimensional (3D) printing techniques produce aortic phantoms with predictable, complex geometries to validate the elastographic imaging algorithms with controlled experiments.
Measurement of Quantum Interference in a Silicon Ring Resonator Photon Source Jeffrey A. Steidle1, Michael L. Fanto1,2, Stefan F. Preble1, Christopher C. Tison2,3,4, Gregory A. Howland2, Zihao Wang1, Paul M. Alsing2 1Microsystems Engineering, Rochester Institute of Technology, 2Air Force Research Laboratory, Rome, NY, 3Department of Physics, Florida Atlantic University, 4Quanterion Solutions Incorporated Silicon photonic chips have the potential to realize complex integrated quantum systems. Presented here is a method for preparing and testing a silicon photonic chip for quantum measurements.
Functional Complementation Analysis (FCA): A Laboratory Exercise Designed and Implemented to Supplement the Teaching of Biochemical Pathways André O. Hudson1, Taylor C.M. Harkness1, Michael A. Savka1 1Thomas H. Gosnell School of Life Sciences, Rochester Institute of Technology The validation of enzymatic activities involved in biochemical pathways can be elucidated using functional complementation analysis (FCA). Described in this manuscript is the FCA assay demonstrating the enzymatic activity of enzymes involved in the metabolism of amino acids, bacterial stringent response and bacterial peptidoglycan biosynthesis.
