The envisioned AR procedural guidance tool can be applied to any ultrasound methods to be developed or implemented for FUS. The AR procedural guidance will provide benefits for methods of varying complexity, and will capture guidance support queues from a range or sources such as video, expert instruction and other relevant sources.
Tietronix has already initiated work with Methodist Houston and an NSF sponsored Cyber-systems of the future Operating Room academic/industry consortium (with membership such as Medtronic, Boston Scientific and Karl Storz) on developing this technology for terrestrial medicine. Tietronix is successful in bringing SBIRs and other innovative NASA technologies to commercial application. The Tietronix workflow tool, TieFlow, developed under the SBIR program has been successfully commercialized by the company. Tietronix has deployed a document review process based on TieFlow in a Fortune 500 company in New Jersey. Another successful Tietronix SBIR based project is the Software Developer?s Assistant (SDA) which has received Phase III funding and is being used in the commercial world by aerospace and medical device companies.
