  • Publication number: 20220105363
    Abstract: Increasing the immune response to a given cancer in a patient through increasing lymphatic flow out of the cancer region, following a primary action of the cancer that loads professional antigen-presenting cells/dendritic cells (APCs/DCs) with tumor-associated antigen (TAA) from the tumor into the interstitial fluid of the cancer region. Example primary actions are radio-therapy, both stereotactic and brachytherapy using implanted seeds, proton-therapy, and chemical- or radio-pharmaceutical therapy. Intra-capillary micro-bubbles in the tumor are brought to vibrate with incident ultrasound of appropriate frequency and amplitude, producing vibrations in the extra capillary tissue that produces an outward acoustic radiation force and micro shear waves in the tissue that increases transport of the interstitial fluid.

  • Patent number: 11275006
    Abstract: Methods and instrumentation for estimation of nonlinear bulk elasticity parameters (NEP) of a material through measuring nonlinear propagation delays (NPDs) at a set of multiple range cells along at least one transmit beam axis, and adapting said NEPs to minimize a functional of the NEPs. The method calculates a distance between a model of the NPDs with the NEPs as input and the measured NPDs, and estimated NEPs are obtained at the minimum of the functional. The NPDs are measured by transmitting at least two pulse complexes comprising a low frequency (LF) and a high frequency (HF) pulse with differences in the LF pulse, along at least one common LF and HF transmit beam axes, and gating out HF receive signals from a multitude of depth ranges along said at least one HF transmit beam axis, and comparing the HF receive signals from two pulse complexes with difference in the LF pulse for each depth range.

  • Publication number: 20210286059
    Abstract: Estimation and imaging of linear and nonlinear propagation and scattering parameters in a material object where the material parameters for wave propagation and scattering has a nonlinear dependence on the wave field amplitude. The methods transmit at least two pulse complexes composed of co-propagating high frequency (HF) and low frequency (LF) pulses along at least one LF and HF transmit beam axis, where said HF pulse propagates close to the crest or trough of the LF pulse along at least one HF transmit beam, and where one of the amplitude and polarity of the LF pulse varies between at least two transmitted pulse complexes. At least one HF receive beam crosses the HF transmit beam at an angle, to provide at least two HF cross-beam receive signals from at least two transmitted pulse complexes with different LF pulses.

  • Publication number: 20200405268
    Abstract: Methods and instrumentation for pulse scattering estimation and imaging of scattering parameters in a material object by transmitting a pulse along a transmit beam and directing a receive beam that crosses at least one transmit beam at an angle <45 deg. The receive beam is at least in an azimuth direction at the transmit beam, and records scattered receive signal from the overlap region. A receive interval of the receive signal is gated for further processing to form measurement and/or image signals from cross-beam observation cells.

  • Patent number: 10502348
    Abstract: A riser connector assembly includes a first connector assembly portion with first locking members, a second connector assembly portion with second locking members, and a locking device with third and fourth locking members. The locking device is rotatably connected to the first connector assembly portion. The locking device rotates between a first position where each of the locking members are interlocked, a second position where the first and third locking members are interlocked, and the second and fourth locking members are not interlocked, and a third position where none of the locking members are interlocked, so that the locking device is removable. The first and third locking members selectively/releasably interlock via a relative rotation between the first connector assembly portion and the locking device. The second and fourth locking members selectively/releasably interlock via a relative rotation between the second connector assembly portion and the locking device.

The locking device is rotatably connected to the first connector assembly portion. The locking device is configured to rotate between a first position where each of the locking members are interlocked, a second position where the first and third locking members are interlocked, and the second and fourth locking members are not interlocked, and a third position where none of the locking members are interlocked, so that the locking device is removable.
