    Xeroradiography is a new approach to the problem of producing an X-ray image in a minimm period of time, in full daylight and for immediate, interpretation. For the past several years, it has been undergoing development and field trials. Associated apparatus is the result of the efforts of the Haloid Company of Rochester, New York, Battell Memorial Institute of Columbus, Ohio, in cooperation with the General Electric Company., X-Ray Department, of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA. Before entering into a discussion of the xeroradiographic process as used in both medical and industrial applications, a brief review of the physical and electrical properties entering into its use is provided.

    The role of electronics for diagnostic and therapeutic use in heart surgery at lowered body temperature (hypothermia) is discussed. The current trend of lowered-temperature anesthesia offers distinct advantages to the cardiovascular surgeon in reducing anesthetic shock and extending tolerance to interrupted oxygenated blood circulation. However, lowered body temperatures impose critical demands on monitoring instruments and on equipment for countering ventricular fibrillation or cardiac arrest. A cardiac resuscitation unit has been designed and built for diagnostic and treatment use in the operating room. The equipment includes an electrocardiograph with both cathode-ray and pen-recorder displays, a heart-rate meter, pacemaker stimulator, defibrillator, thermistor thermometer, blood-pressure monitor and oxygen resuscitator. The application of other electronic techniques in cardiovascular surgery is outlined briefly. View full abstract»

    This paper describes the theoretical aspects of the work done in an Air Force research program on the analysis of electroencephalographic waveforms (brain waves). An analytical characterization of an electroencephalographic (eeg) time series is presented and a neurophysiological model is discussed for relating eeg waveshape to the response of neural populations. The mathematical theory is based on a statistical representation of the eeg signal. A system of signal analysis which may be implemented by measuring the location of zeros, extremals and points of inflection results from treating the individual rectified sections of the eeg signal as statistical distributions.
