Steven R. Broadstone received the BA degrees in mathematics and physics from Hastings College, Hastings, NE, and the BS, MS, and DSc degrees in electrical engineering from Washington University, St. Louis, MO. Currently, he is the Vice President, Research and Development, at Teratech Corporation, Burlington, MA, specializing in the development of state-of-the art portable medical ultrasound systems. He has also been involved in the development of volumetric and handheld sonar systems. Before that, he was involved in the development of adaptive-array processing algorithms and systems at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Lincoln Laboratory, Lexington, MA. While at Washington University, he was a research assistant at the Biomedical Computer Laboratory and the Electronic Systems and Signals Research Laboratory (ESSRL) in the Department of Electrical Engineering, pursuing research in the application of digital-signal processing technology to real-time medical imaging using ultrasound. He has published papers and technical reports in the areas of adaptive-array processing, analog-to-digital converter evaluation, handheld sonar systems and medical ultrasonic imaging.
Mr. Broadstone is a member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM), the Acoustical Society of America (ASA) and the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) and has served as a reviewer for the IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON ANTENNAS ON PROPAGATION, the IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON CIRCUITS AND SYSTEMS II, and the IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON MEDICAL IMAGING. He also holds over 50 patents (domestic and international) in the areas of data acquisition and portable sonar and medical-ultrasound imaging systems.
