Details an artificial intelligence system that monitors blood flow to the brain, which was developed by Philip Njemanze, research fellow at the Medical Center of the University of Missouri. Possible use of the system to ease workloads of air-traffic controllers and pilots; Plans of engineers of McDonnell Douglas to integrate the system into future aircraft cockpits; Doppler effect; Work of Njemanze at a neurocybernetics laboratory at Owerri in Nigeria.

    In medical Doppler ultrasound systems, a high-pass filter is commonly used to reject echoes from the vessel wall. However, this leads to the loss of the information from the low velocity blood flow. Here a spatially selective noise filtration algorithm cooperating with a threshold denoising...

    BACKGROUND: Tennis elbow is a tendinopathy affecting the upper extremity. Recent studies have shown high sensitivity for ultrasound (US) examination and high specificity for colour Doppler (CD) examination. There are no mid- or long-term follow-up investigations of the tendon structure and blood...
