(August 12, 2002) --- During Expedition Five's first spacewalk, crewmembers will install several debris panels on the International Space Station's Zvezda Service Module. The station's Strela Boom will be used to transport a crewmember and the stack of panels. This animated video shows One spacewalker removing the panels from the boom as the other spacewalker translates along the boom to assist. The suit colors in this animation are for illustration only. They do not reflect the actual colors of the spacesuits used during the spacewalk. (no audio)

The Medical Operations checkout of the ultrasound equipment in the Human Research Facility Rack in the Destiny Laboratory occurred on Sept. 13, 2002, by Flight Engineer Dr. Peggy Whitson. She captured images of the human body during the operational checkout, and for the first time, the imaging video from an ultrasound was transmitted from space to the ground.

This ultrasound video sent from the ISS to MCC shows a normal heart as it is beating. You can see the individual chambers and valves which open and close. The Doppler function of the ultrasound shows blood-flow characteristics inside the heart. These images could be used to determine if heart function was impaired in an ill astronaut.

Physicians on the ground -- ultrasound specialist Dr. Ashot Sargasyan and Expedition Five Crew Surgeon Dr. Jeff Jones, along with technical project lead Shannon Melton -- monitored the ultrasound images for more than four hours and guided Whitson as she used the ultrasound to examine multiple organ systems. The ultrasound equipment in Destiny could be used to help flight surgeons on the ground diagnose and treat an ill or injured crewmember.

She captured images of the human body during the operational checkout, and for the first time, the imaging video from an ultrasound was transmitted from space to the ground.

This ultrasound video sent from the ISS to the Mission Control Center in Houston, shows the chest wall and lung. A rib is visible in the upper left-hand corner, which produces a black shadow beneath, because it blocks the transmission of the ultrasound waves. On the right side of the image is the lung moving underneath the chest wall lining. You can see the normal movement of the lung with each breath. This technique could be used to detect a pneumothorax (collapsed lung) in the case of a real medical emergency, for example, trauma to the chest.
