Two BME students recently won travel awards to the 2018 IEEE International Ultrasonics Symposium in Kobe, Japan. The two students, Danai Soulioti and Murad Hossain, each received $1000 to help fund the trip, which will take place from October 22-25. Both students will be presenting at the conference in three separate sessions on October 24.
Danai will be presenting “Human transcranial super-resolution imaging” at a session titled “Super Resolution and Contrast Brain imaging.” Murad will be presenting two abstracts; the first is titled “Assessing Mechanical Anisotropy in Transversely Isotropic (TI) Elastic Materials Using ARFI-Induced Peak Displacement (PD) at Electronically Steered Rotation Angles” at a session titled “Prostate, Thyroid Elasticity, and Mechanical Anisotropy.” The second abstract, “VisR, SWEI, and SDUV Ultrasound Detect Increased Degree of Mechanical Anisotropy Following Ischemia-Reperfusion Injury in Pig Kidney, In Vivo,” will be presented at a session titled “Abdominal Organ Elasticity.”
Congratulations to both Danai and Murad, and bon voyage!
