Implementation of Biological Information System Using Microprocessor(I)-Scanconverter-
Journal of Biomedical Engineering Research, volume 7, issue 1, 1986, Pages 3~10
In this paper, a scanconverter which displays the biological signals of low frequency on CRT for the purpose of easy read-out is attempted to design for using the CRTC, and it stows some good effectivenesses The results obtained in this experiment are as follows : (1) Using only one chip, CRT controller, it can display both waveforms and characters simultaneously. (2) The flexibility of CPU program can be obtained using the sub-microproce ssor function of CRTC chip. (3) The trend of digital data is possible through the graphic function (4) The vibration of displayed waveform can be prevented using the chip simplification and the trigger signal of one chip. (5) Operation with microprocessor malies the expansion and interface easy.

In the clincal application of Hyperthermia, tissue temperature measurements are made at only a few selecte4 locations because of patient tolerance and practical clinical limitation. Since it is necessary to know the complete carcinoma cell temperature field in order to treat effectively, The difficulty of making such estimates from only a few point compounded because of the lack of knowledge of the carcinomoma cell blood perfusion characteristics. To solve the temperature on carcinoma cell, A noninvasive method (the finite element method) is used. The simulation results show that the finite element method is promising for estimating the complete corcinoma cell temerature distribution, if some knowledge of the blood perfusion pattern is available.

Journal of Biomedical Engineering Research, volume 7, issue 1, 1986, Pages 21~34
In this paper, we described the ECG telemetry system via the Public Telephone Line. The system consist of a signal acquisition and measurement section, a signal processing section, and a signal transmission section. It used 8 bits microprocessor. The transmission section is composed of 3 ch. analog modulators and 1 ct. digital modem. Especially, using the digital modem, signal is transmitted with about 50n data reduction ratio by the TP (Turning Point) algorithm. The acoustic coupler or inductive coil for linking the public telephone line are used. The speed of the digital modem is 300 baud rate. The MCBS (Multi Channel Biotelemetry System) is tested and evaluated through the experiment.

Journal of Biomedical Engineering Research, volume 7, issue 1, 1986, Pages 35~40
For quantitative measurement of reflected light from a clinical diagnostic strip, a prototype old reflectance photometer was designed. The strip loader and cassette were made to obtain more accurate reflectance parameters. The strip was illuminated at 45˚c through optical fiber and the intensity of reflected light was determined at rectanguLat angle using a photodiode. The kubelka-munk coefficient and reflection optical density were determined ar four different wavelengths(500, 550, 570 and 610nm) for blood glucose strip. For higher concentration than 300mg/41 about glucose, a saturation state of abforbance was observed at 500, 550 and 570nm. The correlation between glucose concentration and parameters was the best at 610nm.
Parameter Estimation of Tissue Structure Characteristics in Ultrasound Measurement
Journal of Biomedical Engineering Research, volume 7, issue 1, 1986, Pages 41~44
The objective of tissue characterization is to provide quantitative information about the physical state of tissue interrogated by an ultrasound beam. In the computer simulation, it was found that the echoes were composed of the interferences of the ultrasonic waves reflected from both sides of the thin object, and could be separated by the spectral correlation method. Also, the phantom study demonstrates that thickness of the thin acryl layer beyond the resolution of common ultrasonic imaging systems can be measured- using this method.
A Study on the Computerized X-ray System
Journal of Biomedical Engineering Research, volume 7, issue 1, 1986, Pages 45~52
A digital X-ray system was developed using photo-diode arrays. Images were collected with 1,024x1,024x10 bit resolution and 0.5 sec acquisition time. An4 collected images were processed and restored using computer algorithms. For the normal and the patient, we obtained the digital X-ray images using the developed system.
Design of a Digital Modem for ECG Data Transmission
Journal of Biomedical Engineering Research, volume 7, issue 1, 1986, Pages 53~58
This paper represent the design of a digital modem which transmits the ECG data from an ambulatory arrhythmia monitor over the telephone lines to a large hospital for the instantaneous interpretations. The digital modem provides on-line communications between the patient and the central computer located near cardiologists. For commercial telephone lines, the transmitting error rates of the digital modem were measured 200 times at a speed of 300 baud. In those measurements, the block errors-results, due to the misinterpretation of start and stop bits, did not occur, The data bit errors which were due to a single bit interpreted incorrectly were 0.78 (bits/10 ) . Since the acceptable data bit error limit is 10 per 106 bits transmitted, the digital modem designed in this paper can be used for the clinical applications without any difficulty.
Development of Ultrasound Sector B-Scanner(I)-Front End Hardware Part-
Journal of Biomedical Engineering Research, volume 7, issue 1, 1986, Pages 59~66
A prototype ultrasound sector B-scanner has been developed where the front-end hardware refers to all the necessary circuits for transmitting the ultrasound pulses into the human body and receiving the reflected echo signals from it. The front-end hardware can generally be divided into three parts, i.e., a pulse generator for insonification, a receiver which is responsible for processing of low-level analog signals, and a steering controller for driving the mechanical sector probe whose functions and design concepts are described in this paper. The front-end hardware is implemented which incorporates the following features: improvement of the axial resolution using a circuit which reduces the ring-down time, flexibility of generating time-gain compensation curve, and adoption of a one-chip microcomputer for generating the rate pulses based on the sensor output waveforms.

Journal of Biomedical Engineering Research, volume 7, issue 1, 1986, Pages 67~74
We have implemented data compression and reconstruction by using a fast Walsh transform. The ECG signals were generated by an ECG BimLllator (KONT- RON). The sampling frequency was 480 Hz and the data point number used was 512. In order to eliminate the 60 Hz noise and baseline drift, a digital notch filter was designed. We obtaine!1 a compression ratio of 5 : 1 and at this ratio it was possible to obtain a true diagnosis and an ECG morphology analysis.
A Study on the Multigate Pulsed Doppler System.
Journal of Biomedical Engineering Research, volume 7, issue 1, 1986, Pages 75~79
In this paper, a multigate pulsed doppler system with parallel signal processing which enables the transcutaneous assesment of the blood-flow velocities of five adjacent sample volumes is developed. The outputs of the system are audio signals, velocity curves and velocity profiles of 5 adjacent sample volumes. We have applied to the major superficial arteries and obtained the detailed information about the time dependent blood-flow behavior.
