Imaging Physics

The research by the Ultrasound Group focuses on the development of quantitative, functional, sensitive and specific imaging tools with ultrasound, microbubble contrast agents, and light; examples of projects include: correction of ultrasound attenuation for quantitative imaging of tissue perfusion with microbubbles; molecular imaging with ultrasound and targeted microbubbles; ultrasound modulated optical tomography; nonlinear propagation of ultrasound wave in tissue containing microbubbles; nonlinear ultrasound Doppler techniques; a second research group develops new imaging devices where engineering and design principles play a central role in the solution of medical problems; examples of projects include: development of interventional MRI coil; development of an intra-vascular ultrasound scanning device that can be used to image coronary arteries.
