and Sensing of Vulnerable Atherosclerotic Plaque
Clay Harris and Rob Dolan
This research is developing an MFC-NSOM, and combining it with the concept of sensing arrays utilizing ISP methodology capable of ICI and HICI. In this way, sensors will be created that not only obtain large quantities of data, but also analyze that data immediately. The development of a nanowire "sniffer" capable of measuring CRP in vulnerable plaque will provide a method for the identification of patients susceptible to sudden cardiac death. Further research and development of these analytical tools and methods may reduce the number of deaths due to vulnerable plaque.
