    In this letter, we have proposed a new theory on mechanism of the magnetoacoustic (MA) signal generation with magnetic induction for an object with an arbitrary shape. An object under a static magnetic field emits acoustic signals when excited by a time-varying magnetic field, and the acoustic waveform is mainly generated at the conductivity boundaries within the object. The proposed theory on the... View full abstract»

    Sensitivity of applied grasp force is improved for a myoelectrically controlled prosthetic hand under force control through normal force-derivative feedback. Benchtop experiments and results from 12 human test subjects indicate that normal force-derivative feedback can be used in prosthetic hands to help prevent accidental damage to delicate objects.

    In this letter, we present a new waveform-diversity-based ultrasound hyperthermia technique for the treatment of breast cancer. Waveform diversity offers a new paradigm for beampattern design. By choosing a proper covariance matrix of the transmitted waveforms under the uniform elemental power constraint, the ultrasound system can provide a focal spot matched to the entire tumor region, and meanwh...

    Techniques used for nonviral gene transfection often have poor spatial resolution. In this letter, we present a microelectrode array (MEA) system that can precisely transfect exogenous molecules into targeted primary neurons using microelectroporation. An optimal cathodic pulse 4 V in amplitude and 1 ms in duration resulted in a transfection efficiency of 56% and a viability of 82%. Finally, siRNA... View full abstract»

    This letter describes a temperature-varying attenuation approach for preoperative planning of high intensity ultrasound interstitial targeted therapy. Such approach is mainly aimed at the treatment of primary liver cancer for which a precise lesion control must be achieved. It is shown through simulation that the shape and size of the resulting necrotic volume is significantly different from the o... View full abstract»

    Electrosurgery, one of the most-often used surgical tools, Is a robust but somewhat crude technology that has changed surprisingly little since its invention almost a century ago. Continuous radiofrequency is still used for tissue cutting, with thermal damage extending to hundreds of micrometers. In contrast, lasers developed 70 years later, have been constantly perfected, and the laser-tissue int... View full abstract»
