Ultrasound. Integrated. Everywhere.

Buckle up for the beginning of another Pump & Pipes journey as we launch thin-film ultrasound technologies from energy applications into aerospace, health & Medtech sectors.

In collaboration with NASA Tech Talks, and the Mingle Monday Health & MedTech series at The Ion, join Pumps & Pipes as we venture into a discussion on the use of ultrasound technologies from both terrestrial and space medicine perspectives.

How is ultrasound technology deployed in space?

What applications can you envision for ultrasound?

Let our special guest, Dr. Josef Schmid guide you. As a NASA flight surgeon and major general (ret), mobilization assistant to the surgeon general of the Air Force, he has a vast array of experience and insight into those issues.

How can convergence innovation solve current problems?

How can we repurpose Oil & Gas technology for new medical-applications?

Our second special guest, Dr. Dave Hughes, CEO and Founder of Novosound, can give us insight and examples. Their thin-film ultrasound technology, originally created to measure corrosion and erosion on pipes in the oil & gas industry, is currently being developed for a variety of new medical-based solutions.

What problems do you have that could potentially be solved by ultrasound technologies?
