Ultrasound imaging using CMUT
CMUT arrays promise a new generation of ultrasound imaging systems, with applications in 3D and 4D (real-time 3D) non-invasive imaging or high-frequency imaging (ultrasound biomicroscopy). The project targets the development of a portable CMUT-based ultrasound imaging system, to be used for breast cancer detection and monitoring.
The target of the project is to develop a portable ultrasound imaging system for medical applications using Capacitive Micromachined Ultrasound Transducers (CMUT) arrays. The project includes design and fabrication of CMUTs, as well as integration with imaging systems and investigation of imaging applications.
