Congratulations to MANY lab members through the years for their effort on the QIBA initiative, which was recently published in JUM as "RSNA/QIBA Shear Wave Speed Bias Quantification in Elastic and Viscoelastic Phantoms"

Check it out here:


December 2020

Congratulations to Courtney Trutna for presenting at Acoustical Society of America 2020, Acoustics Virtually Everywhere in an invited talk on her work "Frational Derivative Group Shear Wave Speeds for Model-Based Viscoelastic Characterization"

Check it out below! 


November 2020

Congratulations to graduate student Cody Morris whose paper entitled "Multiparametric Ultrasound for Targeting Prostate Cancer: Combining ARFI, SWEI, QUS and B-Mode" was published in UMB: check it out here!


October 2020

Congratulations to our very own Mark Palmeri M.D., Ph.D. who has just been promoted to Professor of the Practice in BME! Duke BME is so lucky to have you and all of your hard work on developing the design curriculum - and we are lucky to have you too!


September 2020

Congrats to graduate students Courtney Trutna, Derek Chan, and Anna Knight for their great work at this years all virtual IEEE IUS 2020:

Courtney presented a poster on "Viscoelastic Characterization in Muscle Using Group Speed Analysis an Volumetric Shear Wave Elasticity Imaging that you can see here for a short time:

Derek presented a poster on "Evaluating Image Quality Improvement in Multiparametric Ultrasound Imaging of Prostate Cancer by Combining ARFI, SWEI, B-mode and QUS” here for a short time:

Anna gave a talk on "Demonstration of Complex Shear Wave Patterns in Skeletal Muscle In Vivo Using 3D SWE"--check out the video on our research page here


Additionally, a few days later at an all virtual ITEC (International Tissue Elasticity Conference), Anna Knight won 3rd place in the Student Awards!

May 2020

Congratulations to the muscle team (Anna Knight, Courtney Trutna, Dr. Ned Rouze, Dr. Nightingale) who have received a MEDx grant to support their work into investigating muscle mechanical properties with 3D SWEI. Check out more info here and more about the MEDx initiative here

April 2020

We are very lucky to be able to work from home during this unprecedented time.  

Like many other labs we were more than happy to donate our PPE to front line responders-- check out all our PPE headed off to the Durham Fire Department

Durham Fire Department Truck filled with donated PPE for first responders


Additionally, we are very proud of our own Dr. Mark Palmeri- who has been working tirelessly with students and faculty from across campus to help create face shields for first responders and a HEPA filter adaptation for PAPR hoods to help create more PPE. Check out the articles on his work here and here




March 2020

Congratulations to graduate student Anna Knight who ran her first marathon solo after her race got cancelled! The lab came out to make an impromptu finish line for her and celebrate her accomplishment

Graduate students Cody Morris, Bofeng Zhang, Katie Flint (Trahey Lab), Courtney Trutna, and Derek Chan celebrate Anna Knight (center) finishing a marathon
