Even when these patients' hearts are beating normally, there are changes in their electrocardiograms that indicate they are at increased risk of developing a new life-threatening arrhythmia. Professor Arthur and his colleagues have identified subtle changes that occur in the spatial distribution, spectral characteristics, as well as in the waveforms of the electrocardiograms from patients at risk. Risk of arrhythmia occurrence is determined from the analysis of torso shape and from the nature and distribution of body-surface electrocardiograms. </p><p>​In another series of studies, one aimed at improving ultrasonic techniques for the detection and staging of cancer, Professor Arthur has devised synthetic-focus algorithms for medical ultrasonic imaging. He is now working on methods to estimate temperature noninvasive during hyperthermia treatment for cancer with diagnostic ultrasound.​​<br/></p><h3>​Biography</h3><p>Following postdoctoral work from 1969 to 1970, Professor Arthur joined the faculty at Washington University in St. Louis. <br/><br/>Professor Arthur is a fellow of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering. He was a member of the Committee on the Safe Use of Electricity in Health Care Facilities of the National Fire Protection Association, which writes the National Electric Code for hospitals. He has presented short-course tutorials on the safe use of electricity in hospitals. He was a member of the Editorial Committee of the Annual Reviews of Biophysics and Bioengineering and a member of the Editorial Board of the Journal of Clinical Engineering.<br/></p><img alt="" src="/Profiles/ResearchImages/Arthur_research.jpg?RenditionID=13" style="BORDER:0px solid;" /><p>​314-935-6167<br/><a href="mailto:rma@wustl.edu">rma@wustl.edu</a><br/>Green Hall, Room 1100A<br/></p><ul><li><a href="/news/Pages/New-master%E2%80%99s-degrees-focus-on-biomedical-engineering-data-analytics.aspx">New master’s degrees focus on biomedical engineering, data analytics</a><br/></li></ul>

During this period he was promoted to various positions and ultimately to Head of the Microwave Technology Branch in 1984. In this capacity he led a group of 20 researchers investigating a wide range of microwave semiconductor and superconductor devices and related integrated-circuit components. His personal research involved the development of computer-aided electromagnetic solutions to microwave problems. He served in this position until he left to join the Department of Electrical Engineering at Washington University as Professor and Chair in 1987.<p></p><p>Professor Spielman is currently performing research on the synthesis of microwave packaging features through electromagnetic solutions. This work first involves developing mathematical formulations of 3-dimensional, electromagnetic problems involving arbitrarily-configured conductors and dielectrics. This formulation is then reduced to a computationally useful matrix analysis employing the method of moments. This analysis is then cast as an optimization problem by defining a cost function that incorporates specified performance at generalized ports for the configuration. The optimization is performed by computer to effect a "synthesis" of the desired geometry and/or material configuration.</p><p>This work has evolved in a new direction to create an area of research called investigative synthesis. This new direction seeks to generate knowledge about the potential of achieving desired performance levels for various categories of applications using entirely new microwave circuit structures that are not amenable to traditional microwave circuit modeling (e.g. using transmission lines and lumped elements) and are, thereby, less intuitive. Knowledge is generated by the following process. New design classes are first characterized by discrete parameters that represent the new class of microwave structures. The performance levels achievable for the new class are interpreted as samples in a design space and are stored in a database. Information in this databased is then interpreted using techniques from statistics, information theory, and population genetics to organize the generated knowledge.</p><p>Spielman has held numerous offices in the IEEE, including President of the IEEE Society on Microwave Theory and Techniques (MTT-S) in 1988. He has served as guest editor of various publications, including special issues of the IEEE Proceedings and the IEEE-MTTS Transactions. He is currently serving as the President of the National Electrical Engineering Department Heads Association (NEEDHA). He was recently elected Life Fellow in the IEEE.<br/></p></div><p>​<a href="mailto:bes@ese.wustl.edu" style="background-color: #ffffff; text-align: center;">bes@ese.wustl.edu</a><br style="color: #444444; text-align: center;"/><span style="color: #444444; text-align: center;">Academy Building, Room 218A</span><br/></p>
