Project: Improving non-invasive diagnostics of cardiovascular disease using ultrasound: development of new blood flow and vessel wall quantification techniques using multiphysics modeling and in-vivo validation studies.

- Vascular applications of medical ultrasound still show severe limitations. A multiphysical simulation tool was previously developed to support the development of new techniques. This project will use our simulationmodel to develop vascular strain imaging, a highly useful tool when screening for vulnerable arterial lesions (e.g. plaques). Both conventional and new imaging approaches will be explored using human and murine data.
