In 2015, the Ultrasound Imaging and Therapeutics Research Laboratory was organized within the School of Electrical & Computer Engineering and the Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at both Georgia Institute of Technology and the Emory University School of Medicine.
Our research group utilizes a synergistic combination of ultrasound and other imaging techniques to solve complementary challenges in biomedical imaging, image-guided therapy, and bionanotechnology. The scope of our work is broad: from anatomical visualization to assessment of functional properties of tissue; from in vivo assessment of cellular/molecular composition of tissue to quantitative imaging. Our group is at the forefront of emerging clinically-relevant therapeutics, which are based on ultrasound guidance and/or electromagnetic waves augmented with complimentary contrast-enhancing and therapeutic nano- and micrometer scale agents.
Overall, we are a collaborative, full-spectrum research group leading the discovery, development, and integration of biomedical imaging technologies in both fundamental research and clinical arenas.
