Our Group

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. Recently the development of novel microbubble contrast agents, together with other advances such as high frame-rate imaging technique, enables imaging and quantification of 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.

Our group are working on the development of new imaging techniques using ultrasound and allied technologies (contrast agents, photoacoustics), together with signal processing, to better visualise and quantify blood flow, perfusion, molecular targets and tissue elasticity properties, and their clinical applications in the diagnosis and treatment  of cardiovascular diseases, cancer and neurological conditions.
