Beyond Conventional Clinical Ultrasound: Advances in Elasticity Imaging and Therapeutics
Start Date: 1/11/2013Start Time: 4:00 PM
End Date: 1/11/2013End Time: 5:30 PM

Event Description
Dr. Elisa E. Konofagou, associate professor in the departments of biomedical engineering and radiology at Columbia University, will discuss how elasticity imaging techniques aim at the detection of tissue abnormalities following an external, internal or inherent mechanical stimulation. Examples will be shown on imaging of normal and pathological myocardium in finite-element models and in vivo murine, canine and human subjects. Additional elasticity imaging techniques, such as Pulse Wave Imaging for the characterization of abdominal aortic aneurysms in vivo and Electromechanical Wave Imaging for the assessment of the conduction properties of the myocardium, will also be discussed. Dr. Konofagou will then introduce therapeutic ultrasound techniques together with application of elasticity imaging for simultaneous monitoring of treatment procedures. Applications of systems in both in vivo breast tumor ablation and opening of the blood-brain barrier (BBB) for brain drug delivery in mice and non-human primates for the treatment of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s will also be shown.
