    Noting that the heterogeneous and complicated nature of medical data places severe restrictions on its analysis, a discussion of the feasibility of establishing standard procedures for this analysis follows. It is pointed out that computational difficulties can be overcome by the use of a high-speed, large-memory computer; principles of mathematical statistics and their application to investigatio...

  • Zero Frequency Response from AC Transducers

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (405 KB)

    Piezoelectric and certain other transducers are not suitable as displacement monitors for very-low-frequency phenomena because the sustained signal resulting from a steady input dies away. The gradual disappearance of the generated voltage essentially partially differentiates a signal. Good low-frequency response down to zero frequency is reconstituted by mixing with a signal some of its own integ... View full abstract»

    The receiver detects FM signals with frequency deviations up to 30 kc in the 300-400-kc band. The drift is less than ±20 cps per day. The receiver operates satisfactorily with field strength variations of 1:30,000. To prevent erroneous recordings when the signal strength varies abruptly with changes in the mutual direction of the transmitting and receiving antennas, a nondirectional receiving ant...

    Many problems in medical research concerning the transmembrane diffusion, transport, and metabolism of oxygen require its detection with microliter accuracy. The paper describes the construction and operating characteristics of an electronic polarograph sensing system with a membrane-covered gold electrode having a sensing error of less than 0.5 microliter of oxygen at atmospheric pressure.

    A new method for the continuous measurement and recording of sweat rate has been developed. The sweat rate is determined by continuously measuring the change in resistance of a sensing element which, in turn, reflects the change in moisture content of a small volume of air. In operation, a chamber containing the element is fastened against the skin. Dry air is passed through the chamber at a suffi... View full abstract»

    A description is given of the bio-instrumentation phase of two related Army Jupiter ballistic missile flights involving squirrel monkey passengers, one of which was recovered alive and in good physical condition. These flights marked the initial entry into space, and successful return, of a primate under ballistic flight conditions comparable to those to be encountered by man. The paper describes ...

    Many of the time-consuming activities performed by a practicing physician can be performed expeditiously by electronic data processing. Permanent records on patients could be made available in a very short time to any hospital in the country. However, the meeting of patient and physician must be regarded as a therapeutic phenomenon from the start. The importance of the thinking, reasoning, and lis... View full abstract»

    Once certain standards are agreed upon, we may obtain and record maximum information from patients with minimum expenditure of a doctor's time and eliminate entirely certain human factors peculiar to both doctor and patient which sometimes lead to delay or confusion in diagnosis. This information will be permanently recorded and readily available at all times and in all places to subsequent physic... View full abstract»

    The Vanderbilt University School of Medicine study of the feasibility of electronic data processing in medical diagnosis emphasizes a coordinated engineering and medical scientific effort. All needed technical modalities exist. Decisions have to be made about obtaining and encoding input patient information, size of memory, nature of access, the organization of data stored in it, the arithmetic of... View full abstract»

    There is an urgent need to quantify if possible the complex phenomena emerging out of the changeable nature and variability of disease processes and resulting from the interactions of man, disease agents, and his environment. Comprehensive care and individualization of treatment is formulated by the physician logically or empirically or intuitively. Methods that can increase the variety, frequency... View full abstract»

    Computers have been built which can handle spatial problems. A particularly interesting application of the spatially oriented computer is to ``read'' chest X-ray photofluorograms and to separate the obviously abnormal chest films from the normal chest films. Preliminary studies of such a computer will be described. View full abstract»

    In machine-aided diagnosis, the problem of dividing the diagnostician's task sensibly between the doctor and machine will be a major part of any successful solution. In this division, a major problem to be faced will be facilitation of communication between the doctor and his mechanical aide. To study methods of communication to match ``communication rates,'' and to establish those parts of the di... View full abstract»
