A guide wire has a distal end incorporating a coil and a capacitive element that form a resonance circuit with a resonance frequency that is responsive to the pressure of blood external to the guide wire. The resonance frequency can be detected wirelessly, or through two contacts at the proximal wire end, or through one brush contact located inside an insertion sheath and a ground electrode. Wireless detection can be implemented via a second resonance circuit, and electronics for determining the frequency when the first and second circuits are in resonance with each other.

Probe development is a critical component in cancer imaging, and novel probes are making major inroads in several aspects of cancer detection and image-guided treatments. Intrinsic MR probes such as signals from metabolites and their chemical shifts have been used for more than a decade to understand cancer physiology and metabolism. Through the integration of technology, molecular biology, and chemistry, the last few years have witnessed an explosion of extrinsic probes for molecular and functional imaging of cancer that, together with techniques such as CEST and hyperpolarization, have significantly expanded the repertoire of MR techniques in basic and translational investigations of many different aspects of cancer. Furthermore, incorporation of MR probes into multifunctional nanoparticles and multimodality imaging platforms have opened new opportunities for MR in image-guided diagnosis and therapy of cancer. Here we have provided an overview of recent innovations that have occurred in the development of MRI probes for molecular and functional imaging of cancer. Although most of these novel probes are not clinically available, they offer significant promise for future translational applications. In this review, we have highlighted the areas of future development that are likely to have a profound impact on cancer detection and treatment. Copyright © 2013 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

A system for detection of blood pressure in a blood vessel includes a guide wire and a LC resonance circuit provided at a distal end of the guide wire. The resonance circuit may be a non-LC resonance circuit responsive to changes in pressure of fluid external to the guide wire such that the resonance circuit has a resonance frequency that varies in accordance with changes in pressure of the external fluid.


A system having a catheter having a distal pressure sensitive capacitive element providing an impedance and phase shift which varies responsive to the amount of pressure from blood external the catheter, a detector having electronics for determining the impedance and/or phase shift. This impedance and or phase shift corresponds to the pressure of the blood about the distal end of the catheter. When the catheter is inserted into a patients body, the impedance or phase shift is detected quasi wirelessly without special signal communication means like optical fibers or electrical wires from outside the patients body utilizing the patient as a ground path and the catheter shaft as an electrical conductor.


Apparatus and methods for deactivating bronchial nerves and smooth muscle extending along a bronchial branch of a mammalian subject to treat asthma and related conditions. An electromechanical transducer (11) is inserted into the bronchus as, for example, by advancing the distal end of a catheter (10) bearing the transducer into the bronchial section to be treated. The electromechanical transducer emits unfocused mechanical vibratory energy of one or more ultrasonic frequencies so as to heat tissues throughout a relatively large target region (13) as, for example, at least about 1 cm^(3 )encompassing the bronchus to a temperature sufficient to inactivate nerves but insufficient to cause rapid ablation or necrosis of organic tissues. The treatment can be performed without locating or focusing on individual bronchial nerves.

Intra-organ ultrasound images are obtained by integrating ultrasound array configurations at the distal region of a sheath or guiding catheter integral to any catheter based intervention. A dual mode ablation/imaging circular ultrasound array is used to create circular or partial circular lesions. The sites of the individual lesion segments are identified in an ultrasound 2D image. In the case of PV isolation the process of ablating individual segments identified in the ultrasound image is repeated until a circumferential, continuous lesion has been achieved and PV isolation has been confirmed with the coaxial loop sensing catheter which also serves as a guide wire.
