PhD scholarship in Coded Ultrasound Imaging

Department of Health Technology, DTU

Location:  Copenhagen  DK

A 3-year PhD scholarship is available at the Center for Fast Ultrasound Imaging (CFU), Department of Health Technology from March 2020 sponsored by the European Research Council (ERC) and the Department of Health Technology at DTU. It is conducted in collaboration between CFU and the MEMS group at DTU Health Tech, the University of Copenhagen, and the Copenhagen University Hospital (Rigshospitalet) in the ERC Synergy Grant “3-D Super resolution Ultrasound Real time imaging of Erythrocytes” – SURE.

The SURE project develops and researches a new super resolution ultrasound imaging method capable of resolving 3-D capillary flow in the human body. The approach tracks the motion of the individual red blood cells (erythrocytes) in a three-dimensional volume for a full visualization of anatomy, flow, and perfusion. The approach can potentially yield a paradigm shift in the scientific study, diagnoses, and treatment of cancer, diabetes, and vascular diseases at the capillary level, as it enables the possibility of volumetrically visualizing capillary perfusion in real-time at frame rates above 20 Hz without injection of contrast agents.

Responsibilities and tasks

This PhD project develops the coded imaging schemes for acquiring 3-D ultrasound volumes using advanced codes to increase the penetration depth and frame rate. The project includes performing a range of phantom and animal experiments to develop and refine the SURE algorithms.

The research is conducted in a truly multi-disciplinary environment consisting of the four academic partners specializing in advanced ultrasound imaging, silicon CMUT probes, animal experiments, and clinical investigations, and the main purpose is to translate the SURE method from a research idea to the clinic.

The main task is to develop suitable ultrasound coded 3-D imaging schemes using row-column matrix arrays fabricated as capacitive micro-machined ultrasound transducers (CMUT). The project seeks to enhance the penetration depth and volumetric frame rate of the 3-D imaging schemes, when taking into account the limitations in peak pressure, intensity and probe heating. The coding schemes investigated include chirp excitation, Hadamard encoding, and spread spectrum imaging. They are implemented on our research scanners for investigation in a laboratory environment. They will finally be clinically evaluated in human trials conducted together with the Department of Radiology at Rigshospitalet to reveal efficacy.

Qualifications
Candidates should have a two-year master’s degree (120 ECTS points) or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to a two-year master’s degree. Experience with digital signal processing is desirable. Similarly, knowledge of medical imaging and acoustics will also be beneficial.

Approval and Enrolment

The scholarship for the PhD degree is subject to academic approval, and the candidate will be enrolled in one of the general degree programmes at DTU. For information about our enrolment requirements and the general planning of the PhD study programme, please see the DTU PhD Guide.
