Ultrasound, one of the most widely used medical imaging modalities, is currently being developed as a noninvasive, targeted therapeutic technique that has incredible potential to transform the treatment of a variety of diseases. Combining imaging and therapy, ultrasound provides a platform technology that is applicable for disease diagnosis, targeted therapy delivery, and therapy response monitoring. The mission of our ultrasound laboratory is to translate basic research advances in ultrasound imaging and therapy into image-guided therapy devices that can impact cancer patient care.
