Active Research Projects

Real-time Elasticity Imaging

Columbia University - SEAS Interdisciplinary Research Seed (SIRS) Funding Program (collaborative project with Prof Elisa Konofagou): 01/2017 - 12/2017

The project aims at the development of compressive sensing techniques that can be integrated into medical imaging systems for real-time elasticity imaging of carotid plaques and thereby the timely prevention of ischemic stroke based on their stiffness and thus stability.
