William Simon Featured on 13WHAM News to Talk About Ultrasound Cardiography

Thursday, May 10, 2001

William Simon, Ph.D., professor in the department of Biochemistry & Biophysics at the University of Rochester Medical Center was featured on 13WHAM News to talk about his 1973 article published in Radiology. The article published with Raymond Gramiak, M.D. and Robert C. Waag, Ph.D. entitled, Ciné Ultrasound Cardiography, discusses the development of a ciné ultrasonic cardiographic technique which produces cross-sectional motion picture studies of the heart using conventional ultrasonic techniques. The area under consideration is examined using a single slow sector scan which incorporates a minimum of 20 cardiac cycles and simultaneously records an electrocardiogram. This panoramic scan views the anatomic structures sequentially, and also includes the motion of the components.
