      Eye laser surgery such as Photo Refractive Kerotectomy (PRK) has been the most recent technology towards correcting vision disorders. However, 20/20 vision is not guaranteed and side effects are possible. By measuring ...
    • Heart Cryopreservation 

      Foote, Stacey; Gaines, Carmen; Levine, Jacob; Pecak, Garry; Saikkonen, Kelly (2000-01-10)
      Heart disease affects many people and heart transplants are becoming more common. Limited shelf life is a major hindrance to the success of heart transplants. Cryopreservation opens an avenue for increasing shelf life. ...
    • Prostate Cryosurgery with Various Numbers of Probes 

      Chow, Brian; Lau, Ingar; Neidrauer, Mike; Park, Jennifer (2000-01-10)
      Cryosurgery is an increasingly popular way to treat prostate cancer. This process includes inserting one or more probes directly into the prostate to freeze the whole tissue and kill the cancer cells. The number of probes ...
    • Thermal Burning and Its Effects on Human Skin 

      Campbell, Mike; Goodman, Joshua; Millis, Carrie; Rasmussen, Jessica (2000-01-10)
      The objective of this paper is to model thermal burning due to application of a heat source, in the form of a cylindrical disc, through the three distinct layers of human skin, the epidermis, dermis and subcutaneous fat. ...
    • Cryogenic Freezing of the Entire Prostate Gland 

      Ehrenberg, Morton; Flynn, Terence; Seth, Rajeev; Thompson, Glenn; Yi, Jason (2000-01-10)
      The goal of this study was to model cryogenic freezing of the entire prostate, using five cryoprobes, while minimizing damage to the surrounding tissue. A 3-D model was attempted, but failed due to time constraints; ...
    • Heat and Moisture Transport in the Nasal Cavity 

      Bahr, Douglas; Tyler, John Poe; Weinert, Peter; Egan, John (2000-01-10)
      The intake of air into the lungs is obviously a vital process for the survival of humans, and the conditioning of this air from ambient to alveolar is a necessity accomplished primarily in the nasal cavity. The human nose ...
