Abstract: A system involving transmitters adapted for mounting on trucks, buses, etc. and capable of energizing at least one transceiver along a highway which in turn sends a signal to a police control station to enable truck drivers to report a disabled vehicle and its general location; vandalism being avoided by mounting the transceivers on the top of light poles on expressways.
Abstract: A sterilizable package for intraocular lens implants is disclosed which is designed to permit optical inspection of the lens and measurement of the lens power under sterile conditions without removal from the sterile package.
Abstract: A unique apparatus for multi-portal administration of radiofrequency range electromagnetic energy for therapeutic treatment of interior portions of various substrates including animals and humans which comprises an R.F. signal generator which is connected to a timer component having switching logic to apply R.F. electromagnetic energy one set at a time, sequentially across a plurality of sets of paired electrode plates, i.e., applicators. Each set of paired electrode plates is positioned on a different axis with reference to a fixed central point located between the plates at which such axes approximately intersect and which is the location of the portion to be treated.The apparatus permits a fixed target, i.e., portion to be treated, to receive a constant input of R.F. energy although such energy is coming from different directions and emanating from different electrodes, hence several R.F. fields are created sequentially by the control mechanism as it functions.
Abstract: A new method for detection of lesions and benign and malignant tumors of portions of the human body such as the female breast is described which comprises (a) coating the skin of that portion of the body which is to be evaluated for tumors with a heat sensitive color responsive chemical such as cholesterol (b) heating that portion of the body so coated with penetrating radiation such as diathermy in either the microwave or radio wave frequency and (c) scanning the color coated skin over that portion of the body so treated as to identify by color change that "hot spots" which indicate the location of possible tumors or lesions.
