Ultrasonographic monitoring and early diagnosis of stroke

Objective

The UMEDS project will establish non-invasive techniques for early diagnosis and bedside monitoring of stroke to improve stroke outcome. An important goal will be to expand recent developments in microbubble technology and ultrasonographic harmonic imaging to establish ultrasound techniques for both qualitative and quantitative evaluation of brain perfusion. UMEDS will develop new technologies to meet these goals. These include an automated system for detection of microemboli, a device for imaging the brain through the skull, a dual transducer system for microemboli detection and enhanced features for commercial applications of ultrasound perfuson imaging. We will investigate novel targeted microbubble technology for characterizing microemboli.
