Assessing the Development of Artificial Intelligence Technologies In Radiation Therapy and Targeting Irregular Masses

Eric Bear, Jessica Singh, and Michael Wahrman   ABSTRACT The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the use of artificial intelligence in the medical use of particle accelerators for both treatment (radiation therapy) and imaging. We will first discuss the implications of artificial intelligence (AI) on particle accelerators, starting with basic control mechanisms and then moving to complex systems such as neural networking. AI has the potential to increase efficiency and precision in all […]

Innovative New Technology Attempting to Reduce Hospital Associated Infections

Kenneth Trang Introduction Today, the modern American is more likely than ever before to visit a hospital, local doctor, or any healthcare provider. In fact, 83% of Americans (268 million) visited a healthcare professional in 2015 ((Summary Health Statistics: National Health Interview Survey. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. 2015)). However, while hospitals do have general health benefits, visiting one exposes patients to a new risk: healthcare associated infections (HAIs), also known as nosocomial infections. […]

Progression Towards A Universal Communication Technology

Introduction All throughout the history of mankind, there has been an eternal human desire to communicate.  This thirst for improvement did not discriminate; it manifested itself in every human civilization. No matter what artificial divisions were imposed on people, this force bound everyone together in the pursuit of a common goal. The purpose of this paper is to identify what communication technology is truly universal. This technology would then achieve this common goal of all […]

Revolutionary Developments in Nanotechnology for Human Biology

Abstract This project centers on critically structuring some of the conceptual categories that comprise and have the promise to, in fact, define modern advances in what nanotechnology can do to the corporeal subject. By orienting regenerative medicine and tissue and stem-cell engineering as a locus of creative energy and imaginative study and locating certain imaging mechanisms, nanoparticles, and nanodevices as vessels integral to the functioning of that biomedical engineering ideal, the particulars of research that […]

A Consumer Ultrasound for Autonomous Heart Attack Detection

A Consumer Ultrasound for Autonomous Heart Attack Detection Pradyuman Mittal Tara Nash Patrick Murphy Stanford University  Abstract Every year, half of the 610,000 heart attack deaths in the United States are due to a lack of prompt medical attention. Currently, most technologies fail to fix the problem, as they simply take too long to be able to detect a heart attack in time. Either the biomarkers they track spike in delayed reactions or the device is not capable […]
