* ISS Crew Participates in Biomedical Experiments*
A large part of Expedition 9's workday on Thursday was devoted to 
International Space Station biomedical experiments.

Commander Gennady Padalka and NASA ISS Science Officer Mike Fincke 
participated in the second part of the Advanced Diagnostic Ultrasound in 
Microgravity (ADUM) experiment, which uses ultrasound equipment in the 
Destiny Laboratory Module 
<http://spaceflight.nasa.gov/station/assembly/elements/uslab/index.html>'s 
Human Research Facility 
<http://www1.msfc.nasa.gov/NEWSROOM/background/facts/hrf.html>. The 
experiment is studying the ability of minimally trained Station 
crewmembers to perform advanced ultrasound examinations after using a 
computer-based program. The results of ADUM could lead to widespread 
applications in emergency and rural care situations. The crewmembers 
also participated in Russian and European biomedical experiments.


            In other activities, the crew conducted routine checks on
            ISS medical equipment and routine maintenance on the
            outpost's ventilation system.
