Medical Ultrasound Imaging System Cancer diagnosis

Current diagnostic device problems

Ultrasound imaging is harmless to the human body and enables rapid examination, so it is widely used for cancer screening. However, the accuracy of distinguishing lesions is low, requiring additional tests such as biopsy.


Proposed ultrasound medical imaging system

The researchers are developing a medical imaging system that can classify tumor types by non-invasive and real-time quantification of tissue characteristics using ultrasound. It will evolve into a next-generation cancer diagnostic system that will replace biopsy.

Myocardial infarction diagnosis

Current diagnostic device problems

Currently, myocardial infarction is diagnosed using an electrocardiogram and echocardiogram, but it depends on the subject of the doctor and does not quantitatively show the condition of the myocardium.



Proposed ultrasound medical imaging system

The researchers are developing an ultrasound system that quantitatively images the ischemic condition of the myocardium using ultrasound. It is expected that a rapid and accurate diagnosis of myocardial infarction will be possible, which will greatly reduce the initial mortality rate.
