Congratulations to Courtney Trutna for the acceptance of her paper entitled Measurement of Viscoelastic Material Model Parameters using Fractional Derivative Group Shear Wave Speeds in Simulation and Phantom Data. It will be published in IEEE Transactions on Ultrasonics, Ferroelectrics, and Frequency Control (DOI 10.1109/TUFFC.2019.2944126), and is available for early access here.


Thank you to all who came to see our work at IEEE IUS 2019 in Glasgow! Congratulations to Derek, Cody, and Anna who all gave great talks, and to Bofeng, Courtney, and Dr. Ned Rouze who all presented impressive posters! We enjoyed meeting with other researchers in our field-- check out the full Program here .
