Project description

The goal of the project is to develop a new ultrasound diagnostic devices (UZ), which will allow early detection of breast cancer and reduce the need for using ionizing radiation during the examination. The goal is to eliminate disatvantages of an current ultrasonic diagnostic apparatus in the diagnosis of breast cancer, that prevents its use. The newly developed ultrasound probe allows better detection of characteristic bearings including microcalcifications. Another goal is to create a certified methods of a sonographic examination of the breast, used in clinical practice.

Project description

Current therapeutic ultrasonic devices most often use piezoelectric transducers and electronic generators. The reason is the possibility of low-cost solution of the electronics and of piezoelectric ultrasonic probes. The ultrasonic probes are either single-frequency and exchange or multifrequency ones. The disadvantage of the conventional probes is that they do not allow automatic alteration and adjustment of the ultrasonic energy to a specific tissue site in terms of both position, depth and time. The new solution, which will be developed, offers the possibilities analogous to those of the diagnostic US. Solution with powerful programmable generator will be developed in multichanging design allowing pseudocontinuous excitation. It will be possible to deflect, focus and cyclically shift the energy focus of the therapeutic beam, using a linear scan, sector scan, focusing and a combination of these options. The control process will allow to change the dose, frequencies, or it will be possible to use the multi-frequency mode. Thanks to that both resonance mode and the mode of suppressed resonance will be introduced which will on the contrary allow to eliminate the energy nodes. Another significant upgrade from the current state will be the application of acoustic waveguides in the form of shaped inserts made directly to the contact application on the body part where the therapeutic dose of the ultrasonic energy should be applied. Acoustic matching shape conversion lens of ultrasonic probes will be implemented using 3D printing from medically approved biocompatible materials. In this way and with the defined objectives of search and development a prototype of breakthrough type of therapeutic US will be created. It will be patented and brought to the precompetetive stage with preclinical and clinical validation based on defined objectives. This prototype will be promptly certified in the class of IIa of medical devices and launched for use and application.

Název projektu 3D printed diamond composite components for more efficient energetics
Project identification code

TK02020094

Project description

The (main) aim of the project is the R & D of 3D printed pyrolysed diamond cooling elements for high power generation. Its achievement will be demonstrated by the pilot plant 3D print of the composite diamond with a protection by the utility model. The project implements R&D of diamond cooling elements. Milestones of each stage will be functional samples and a prototype of a 3D printed diamond cooling element. The deadline is 06/2023.
