We are interested in developing new tools, techniques, and systems for medical imaging. All of our research involves ultrasound, including development of novel sensors, contrast agents, and imaging techniques and algorithms. We are part of the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech and Emory, the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Georgia Tech, and the Bioengineering Graduate Program. We are also part of the Georgia Center for Medical Robotics.
The goal of the Ultrasonic Imaging and Instrumentation Lab is to develop novel systems for image-guided intervention in procedures currently performed without any visualization (blind) or limited to two-dimensional, qualitative imaging with ionizing radiation (e.g. fluoroscopy).
In our lab, we develop novel instrumentation, image formation techniques, and functional imaging approaches for ultrasound imaging-guided intervention.
