Congratulations to Dr. Cody Morris for defending his dissertation entitled "Improving Prostate Cancer Detection using Multiparametric Ultrasound"


We would like to say a big congratulations to Yangpei Liu, who graduated this semester with his Master's degree and undergraduate Becky Arbiv. Yangpei will be going on to do a Ph.D. at Columbia university, and Becky will be going on to do a Ph.D. at Georgia Tech after a year in Israel. Congratulations to both of them and we are excited to see what you do next.


Finally we have a new addition to the lab- welcome to Spencer Moavenzadeh who will be a Research Associate with us for the next year

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!
