pECHO: Easy to Use Smartphone App for Assisting in Transesophageal Echocardiography Exam

Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) is a test that uses high-frequency sound waves to create images of the heart. It provides more detail that a standard echocardiogram. Vanderbilt researchers have created a software that creates an easy to follow, step-by-step procedure for a transesophageal echocardiography exam.

Driving Skills Improvements in Teenagers with ASD using Virtual Reality

Various aspects of Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) have been under study for many years. While the emphasis has been on early identification and early treatment of children with ASD, a sometimes overlooked fact is that ASD children grow up to be teenagers. An essential life skill for teenagers is the ability to drive. However, ASD teens and adults are often prone to certain mistakes in driving and gaze patterns required for driving. Collaborators at Vanderbilt's School of Engineering and the Kennedy Center have created a simulator that is meant to teach ASD teenagers these critical skills.

Fault-Adaptive Control Technology Toolsuite (FACT)

The FACT toolsuite assists engineers working with complex aerospace systems to design and implement control systems that can maintain control even when the controlled system ""fails."" The tool suite uses a model-based approach where the designer creates design models of the plant and its associated control system, and the tools automatically generate code that implements fault-detection, isolation and control reconfiguration functions.

OLINDA/EXM Radiation Dose Assessment Software Application

The OLINDA/EXM® personal computer code performs dose calculations and kinetic modeling for radiopharmaceuticals (OLINDA/EXM stands for Organ Level INternal Dose Assessment/EXponential Modeling). OLINDA® calculates radiation doses to different organs of the body from systemically administered radiopharmaceuticals and performs regression analysis on user-supplied biokinetic data to support such calculations for nuclear medicine drugs. These calculations are used to perform risk/benefit evaluations of the use of such pharmaceuticals in diagnostic and therapeutic applications in nuclear medicine. The technology employs a number of standard body models for adults, children, pregnant women and others, that are widely accepted and used in the internal dose community. The calculations are useful to pharmaceutical industry developers, nuclear medicine professionals, educators, regulators, researchers and others who study the accepted radiation doses that should be delivered when radioactive drugs are given to patients or research subjects.

BCL::Commons

BCL::Commons:: (BioChemistry Library Commons) is an object oriented C++ programming library. The library is designed to simulate biological molecules - proteins and peptides in particular - as well as small chemicals such as therapeutics. It comprises mathematical methods to evaluate the energy of these molecules in their natural environment. BCL::Jufo is the first publicly released BCL::Commons module.

Core Ordering and Reporting Enterprise System (CORES™)

CORES™ is a highly configurable, enterprise-wide software solution for research institutions. CORES™ provides full central oversight while also allowing for flexible but consistent decentralized billing and usage functionality for core facilities. This software allows core managers and customers to enter orders using a variety of methods. The software also allows customers in product cores to scan their items at a self-service checkout terminal that provides full real-time inventory management. Orders are accumulated into electronic invoices and e-mailed to customers each month. An electronic upload file containing order information is also created for the finance department. Vanderbilt has approximately 90 internal cores using this software. In addition, the software is used by several other institutions to whom the software has been licensed.

System for Stabilizing Phase of a Picosecond Laser Sysem to an RF Accelerator

The invention relates to an improved method and system for synchronizing signals in a particle accelerator system. In one embodiment, a method and system is disclosed whereby a phase of laser pulses are monitored, and a high-frequency signal is adjusted as necessary to be substantially in-phase with the laser pulses. In another embodiment, a method and system is disclosed whereby a phase of an electromagnetic field in an electron gun is monitored, and a high-frequency signal is adjusted as necessary to be substantially in-phase with the electromagnetic field.

ProcoderDV

Procoder for Digital Video (ProcoderDV) was developed at the John F. Kennedy Center at Vanderbilt University to facilitate the collection of different forms of observational data from digital media files. Media files can be any files that contain events of interest on digital video or audio files. Data files can be of two general types: event files or transcription files. Files can be exported into MOOSES (Tapp & Wehby, 1995) format or SALT (Miller & Chapman, 1993) format or can be read directly by many popular statistical or spreadsheet programs. A code file can be used in conjunction with ProcoderDV to guide the coder inmarking events for later quantification and analysis.
