Super-resolution (SR) ultrasound imaging, particularly through localisation and tracking of microbubble contrast agents (also known as ultrasound localisation microscopy or ULM), is a new exciting area of research in biomedical ultrasound with potential impact in a wide range of biomedical applications. In recent years many different SR methodologies and algorithms have been proposed by different…
Ultrasound has been well established as a front line clinical imaging tool for diagnosis and treatment monitoring in a wide range of diseases such as cardiovascular diseases and cancer. Recent advances in e.g. ultrasonic engineering, computing, and contrast agents have made it possible to image and quantify tissue structure and function with unprecedented sensitivity and resolution. Such techniques offer potentials to detect diseases and their responses to treatment at a much earlier stage and with greater accuracy at point of care.
Our group are working on the development of new imaging, signal processing and computing techniques which push the boundary in ultrasound spatial and temporal image resolution and information content, and their clinical applications in the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular diseases, cancer and neurological conditions.
