Abstract :

The Mandarin electrolaryngeal (EL) speech is suffering from severe fricative confusion due to improper EL source in EL speech production and abnormal physiological structure of vocal tract in the laryngectomized condition. To reduce the fricative confusions, this paper proposes a hybrid noise source by combining the typical natural fricative sources and compensation sources that consider the acoustic defects in the frequency domain caused by the truncated vocal tract and abnormal source location in EL speech production. All parameters of the model are fricative-specific and the parameters of the compensation sources are determined by analyzing the vocal tract transfer functions before and after the laryngectomy. All five Mandarin fricatives are produced by laryngectomized subjects with an experimental EL system loading the hybrid noise source and the wideband noise source. The acoustic and perceptual features of these reconstructed EL fricatives are analyzed and evaluated by comparing with the conventional EL fricatives and normal fricatives. The results indicate that the hybrid noise source successfully improves the acoustic properties of the EL fricatives by forming better spectral shapes, raising the frequencies of average energy concentration, and producing better spectral skewness and kurtosis. Finally, due to these improvements of acoustic properties, the hybrid noise sources achieve much larger intelligibility for EL fricatives than the wideband noise source and the conventional EL source. Thus, the hybrid noise source is an effective, feasible, and promising method of reducing the severe fricative confusions and improving the intelligibility of EL speech.

Abstract :

For investigating human transcranial ultrasound imaging (TUI) through the temporal bone, an intact human skull is needed. Since it is complex and expensive to obtain one, it requires that experiments are performed without excision or abrasion of the skull. Besides, to mimic blood circulation for the vessel target, cellulose tubes generally fit the vessel simulation with straight linear features. These issues, which limit experimental studies, can be overcome by designing a 3-D-printed skull model with acoustic and dimensional properties that match a real skull and a vessel model with curve and bifurcation. First, the optimal printing material which matched a real skull in terms of the acoustic attenuation coefficient and sound propagation velocity was identified at 2-MHz frequency, i.e., 7.06 dB/mm and 2168.71 m/s for the skull while 6.98 dB/mm and 2114.72 m/s for the printed material, respectively. After modeling, the average thickness of the temporal bone in the printed skull was about 1.8 mm, while it was to 1.7 mm in the real skull. Then, a vascular phantom was designed with 3-D-printed vessels of low acoustic attenuation (0.6 dB/mm). It was covered with a porcine brain tissue contained within a transparent polyacrylamide gel. After characterizing the acoustic consistency, based on the designed skull model and vascular phantom, vessels with inner diameters of 1 and 0.7 mm were distinguished by resolution enhanced imaging with low frequency. Measurements and imaging results proved that the model and phantom are authentic and viable alternatives, and will be of interest for TUI, high intensity focused ultrasound, or other therapy studies.

Effects of Vertical Glottal Duct Length on Intraglottal Pressures and Phonation Threshold Pressure in the Uniform Glottis SCIE PubMed Scopus

Abstract&Keyword Cite

Abstract :

According to Titze's 1988 derivations for phonation threshold pressure (PTP), there are a number of important variables that PTP depends upon. A primary one is the vertical glottal duct length T: PTP decreases if T is increased. Changing the length of T, however, may have a significant effect on other variables that PTP depends upon. This study examined the effects of lengthening the vertical uniform glottal duct on the transglottal and intraglottal pressures, and the derived transglottal pressure coefficients, for five glottal diameters (0.01, 0.02, 0.04, 0.08, and 0.16 cm) and three transglottal pressures (500, 1000, and 1500 Pa) for the uniform glottis by using the computational fluid dynamics code Fluent (for laminar, incompressible, two-dimensional flow). The results suggest the following: A longer vertical glottal duct length increases the intraglottal and transglottal pressures, and more so for smaller glottal diameters, and increases the transglottal pressure coefficient. In addition, unlike the transglottal pressure coefficient, the glottal entrance pressure coefficient is highly dependent on the vertical glottal duct length only for lower flows and Reynolds numbers, but is relatively independent of duct length, glottal diameter, and transglottal pressure above a flow value of approximately 50 cm(3)/s, suggesting that the entrance pressure coefficient is a relatively local phenomenon. These results suggest that the vertical glottal duct length and its effects need to be taken into consideration for vocal fold modeling, aeroacoustics purposes, and the estimation of PTP.

Abstract :

PurposeImprovement of both the imaging resolution and the contrast-to-tissue ratio (CTR) is a current emphasis of contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) for microvascular perfusion imaging. Based on the strong nonlinear characteristics of contrast agents, the CTRs have been significantly enhanced using various advanced CEUS methods. However, the imaging resolution of these methods is limited by the finite bandwidth of the imaging process. This study aimed to propose a bubble-echo based deconvolution (BED) method for CEUS with both improved resolution and CTR. MethodThe method is built on a modified convolution model and uses novel bubble-echo based point-spread-functions to reconstruct the images by regularized inverse Wiener filtering. Performances of the proposed BED for three CEUS modes are investigated through simulations and in vivo perfusion experiments. ResultsBED of fundamental imaging was found to have the highest improvement in imaging resolution with the resolution gain up to 2.0 0.2 times, which was comparable to the approved cepstrum-based deconvolution (CED). BED of second-harmonic imaging had the best performance in CTR with an enhancement of 9.8 +/- 2.3 dB, which was much higher than CED. Pulse inversion BED had both a better resolution and a higher CTR. ConclusionAll results indicate that BED could obtain CEUS image with both an improved resolution and a high CTR, which has important significance to microvascular perfusion evaluation in deep tissue.

Nakagami-m parametric imaging for characterization of thermal coagulation and cavitation erosion induced by HIFU EI SCIE PubMed Scopus

Abstract&Keyword Cite

Abstract :

Nowadays, both thermal and mechanical ablation techniques of HIFU associated with cavitation have been developed for noninvasive treatment. A specific challenge for the successful clinical implementation of HIFU is to achieve real-time imaging for the evaluation and determination of therapy outcomes such as necrosis or homogenization. Ultrasound Nakagami-m parametric imaging highlights the degrading shadowing effects of bubbles and can be used for tissue characterization. The aim of this study is to investigate the performance of Nakagami-m parametric imaging for evaluating and differentiating thermal coagulation and cavitation erosion induced by HIFU. Lesions were induced in basic bovine serum albumin (BSA) phantoms and ex vivo porcine livers using a 1.6 MHz single-element transducer. Thermal and mechanical lesions induced by two types of HIFU sequences respectively were evaluated using Nakagami-m parametric imaging and ultrasound B-mode imaging. The lesion sizes estimated using Nakagami-m parametric imaging technique were all closer to the actual sizes than those of B-mode imaging. The p-value obtained from the t-test between the mean m values of thermal coagulation and cavitation erosion was smaller than 0.05, demonstrating that the m values of thermal lesions were significantly different from that of mechanical lesions, which was confirmed by ex vivo experiments and histologic examination showed that different changes result from HIFU exposure, one of tissue dehydration resulting from the thermal effect, and the other of tissue homogenate resulting from mechanical effect. This study demonstrated that Nakagami-m parametric imaging is a potential real-time imaging technique for evaluating and differentiating thermal coagulation and cavitation erosion.

Abstract :

Pulse-echo imaging technique can only play a role when high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) is turned off due to the interference between the primary HIFU signal and the transmission pulse. Passive acoustic mapping (PAM) has been proposed as a tool for true real-time monitoring of HIFU therapy. However, the most-used PAM algorithm based on time exposure acoustic (TEA) limits the quality of cavitation image. Recently, robust Capon beamformer (RCB) has been used in PAM to provide improved resolution and reduced artifacts over TEA-based PAM, but the presented results have not been satisfactory. In the present study, we applied an eigenspace-based RCB (EISRCB) method to further improve the PAM image quality. The optimal weighting vector of the proposed method was found by projecting the RCB weighting vector onto the desired vector subspace constructed from the eigenstructure of the covariance matrix. The performance of the proposed PAM was validated by both simulations and in vitro histotripsy experiments. The results suggested that the proposed PAM significantly outperformed the conventionally used TEA and RCB-based PAM. The comparison results between pulse-echo images of the residual bubbles and cavitation images showed the potential of our proposed PAM in accurate localization of cavitation activity during HIFU therapy.

Abstract :

In this study, the bioeffects of acoustic droplet vaporization (ADV) on adjacent cells were investigated by evaluating the real-time cell response at the single-cell level in situ, using a combined ultrasound-exposure and optical imaging system. Two imaging modalities, high-speed and fluorescence imaging, were used to observe ADV bubble dynamics and to evaluate the impact on cell membrane permeabilization (i.e., sonoporation) using propidium iodide (PI) uptake as an indicator. The results indicated that ADV mainly led to irreversible rather than reversible sonoporation. Further, the rate of irreversible sonoporation significantly increased with increasing nanodroplet concentration, ultrasound amplitude, and pulse duration. The results suggested that sonoporation is correlated to the rapid formation, expansion, and contraction of ADV bubbles near cells, and strongly depends on ADV bubble size and bubble-to-cell distance when subjected to short ultrasound pulses (1 mu s). Moreover, the displacement of ADV bubbles was larger when using a long ultrasound pulse (20 mu s), resulting in considerable cell membrane deformation and a more irreversible sonoporation rate. During sonoporation, cell membrane blebbing as a recovery manoeuvre was also investigated, indicating the essential role of Ca2+ influx in the membrane blebbing response. This study has helped us gain further insights into the dynamic behavior of ADV bubbles near cells, ADV bubble-cell interactions, and real-time cell response, which are invaluable in the development of optimal approaches for ADV-associated theranostic applications.

Abstract&Keyword Cite

Abstract :

Inertial cavitation is crucial for the therapeutic effects of sonodynamic. Therefore, approaches that can induce highly efficient inertial cavitation should be of benefit for sonodynamic effect. Our previous study demonstrated that highly efficient inertial cavitation activity can be achieved through the combinatorial use of a short-pulsed focused ultrasound (SPFU) sequence and perfluorohexane (PFH) nanodroplets. Herein, we applied the SPFU sequence and PFH nanodroplets in sonodynamic. A hydrophobic sonosensitizer, IR780 iodine, was loaded inside denatured bovine serum albumin-shelled PFH (PFH@BSA-IR780) nanodroplets. The sonodynamic efficacy was validated by treating HeLa cervical cancer cells. Under SPFU exposure, PFH@BSA-IR780 nanodroplets were highly effective in promoting reactive oxygen species generation and inducing cancer cell death. A significant decrease in cell viability was achieved within just 10 s. Besides the cytotoxicity of ROS, the mechanical bioeffects of inertial cavitation also led to severe cell death resulting from higher acoustic power or the longer treatment time. The application of the SPFU sequence coupled with PFH@BSA-IR780 nanodroplets is a promising strategy for efficient sonodynamic. © 2018 Elsevier B.V.

Abstract :

Laser-activated bioprobes with high photothermal conversion efficiency (IRPDA@PFH NDs) based on biocompatible IR-780 doped polydopamine perfluorocarbon nanodroplets (NDs) were developed. When protected by gelatin microspheres, their near spherical morphologies can be easily observed with transmission electron microscope. Doping IR-780 (3 w/w % of added dopamine hydrochloride) can significantly enhance near-infrared (NIR) absorption and photothermal conversion efficiency to 57.7%. The enhanced NIR absorption and nonradiative relaxation are preferred to stronger photoacoustic (PA) signals and higher PA imaging definition; ultrasound (US) signals also increase more than 2.5 times because of easier phase change of NDs. These bioprobes had sensitive PA/US imaging capability with highly effective substitute utilizations, in which polydopamine was used either as a PA contrast or a photothermal agent. Perfluorocarbon can be used as an US contrast agent and temperature indicator. More importantly, the gray value increments of US increase with temperature in a general range from 35 to 55 degrees C. Especially, an approximate linear increasing of gray value in the optimized photothermal therapy (PTT) range from 35 degrees C to 50 degrees C could be used for the temperature monitoring and control of PTT. During PTT, the heated regions and the extent of photothermal heating can be visualized by US imaging. These findings indicate their great potential for biosensing and PTT monitoring.

Abstract :

The feasibility of ultrasonic Nakagami imaging to evaluate thermal lesions by high-intensity focused ultrasound and microwave ablation was explored in ex vivo and in vivo liver models. Dynamic changes of the ultrasonic Nakagami parameter in thermal lesions were calculated, and ultrasonic B-mode and Nakagami images were reconstructed simultaneously. The contrast-to-noise ratio (CNR) between thermal lesions and normal tissue was used to estimate the contrast resolution of the monitoring images. After thermal ablation, a bright hyper-echoic region appeared in the ultrasonic B-mode and Nakagami images, identifying the thermal lesion. During thermal ablation, mean values of Nakagami parameter showed an increasing trend from 0.72 to 1.01 for the ex vivo model and 0.54 to 0.72 for the in vivo model. After thermal ablation, mean CNR values of the ultrasonic Nakagami images were 1.29 dB (ex vivo) and 0.80 dB (in vivo), significantly higher (p < 0.05) than those for B-mode images. Thermal lesion size, assessed using ultrasonic Nakagami images, shows a good correlation to those obtained from the gross-pathology images (for the ex vivo model: length, r = 0.96; width, r = 0.90; for the in vivo model: length, r = 0.95; width, r = 0.85). This preliminary study suggests that ultrasonic Nakagami parameter may have a potential use in evaluating the formation of thermal lesions with better image contrast. Moreover, ultrasonic Nakagami imaging combined with B-mode imaging may be utilized as an alternative modality in developing monitoring systems for image-guided thermal ablation treatments.
