Background

LJB Development was founded on 1995 by Lawrence J. Busse. He earned a Ph.D. in physics from Washington University (St. Louis) in 1979, where he specialized in the ultrasound imaging and device development. Primary products provided by LJB-Development include custom scientific software applications, as well as, consulting services related to the development of medical devices. Dr. Busse is a member of the Institute of Electronics and Electrical Engineers (IEEE) and the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM).

Dr. Busse is an experienced researcher.

  • 1989-1995 he served as the Director of Research for TETRAD Corporation. TETRAD is a consulting/engineering firm which provided designs for transducer systems and electronics. There, he helped TETRAD bring to market an ultrasound imaging system designed to guide and assist in laparoscopic surgical procedures. Larry was responsible for numerous software development projects, externally funded grants, intellectual property and patents, and the implementation of an automated transducer test facility for compliance with FDA regulatory requirements.
  • 1984-1988 he was Assistant Professor and Director of the Image Processing Laboratory at the University of Cincinnati, Department of Radiology where he developed instrumentation and algorithms for MRI Imaging of perfluoro-chemicals.
  • 1979-1984 he was a Senior Scientist at Battelle-Pacific Northwest Laboratories using ultrasound and computer automated systems to develop Non-Destructive Evaluation systems for the inspection of composite materials and large metal components.
  • 1975-1979 he was a graduate student in the physics department of Washington University’s Laboratory for Ultrasonics in St Louis, where he investigated the acoustoelectric effect as a means to more accurately measure ultrasonic attenuation in non-homgeneous materials.  A copy of his Ph.D thesis is available here.

He has 48 published papers or talks, 8 patents, and has co-authored a book chapter on ultrasound transducer design and a book chapter on MRI gradient coil design.
