Research

research overview

  • Our work focuses on improving ultrasound image quality in challenging imaging environments using advanced beamforming techniques. We design system-level solutions to clinical problems, working from scanner sequencing to signal and image processing. We develop technologies that push the limits of ultrasound image quality: swept synthetic aperture imaging, adaptive clutter reduction, advanced beamforming, and more.
