Many thanks to UW Faculty of Engineering for selecting Alfred as the recipient of the 2019 Engineering Research Excellence Award. Our lab is grateful for the school's endorsement over our research endeavors. Thank you!
We are pleased to announce that Takuro Ishii has started his PI career as a tenure-track assistant professor at Tohoku University - an Imperial university with strong presence in ultrasonics. He is now a PI of the prestigious JSPS Leaders Program. Congrats!
If you wish to engage in the next generation of innovations in ultrasonics, we could be a great home for your research training! Application deadline for Winter 2021 admission is June 1, 2020.
Alfred is grateful to be named a Fellow of the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM). It is a huge honor. Proud to be a contributor to medical ultrasound. Thanks!
Want to join our fun on designing flow phantoms? We have built walled phantoms of urethra, carotid bifurcation, and vessels with regional stiffness variations, as well as wall-less phantoms with omnidirectional flow and patient-specific geometries.
Our best practices in designing platforms to study the cellular bioeffects of LIPUS and sonoporation have now been published. Feel free to build similar platforms to study bioeffects such as ER stress, morphological repression, and cell-cycle arrest.
Ever wondered if flow instability can be visualized in flow diagnostics? Our new DUBI technique may provide an answer. It can track unstable flow at 10,000 fps. This is another imaging innovation after our previous success with VPI and CESI.
Our 2nd-gen high-frame-rate imaging platform is now ready! This software-based platform, with live imaging functionality that our 1st-gen platform didn't have, was done in collaboration with US4US in Poland. It has uniquely integrated our GPU innovations and our CESI technique.
