Researchers develop the world's smallest ultrasound detector

Researchers at Helmholtz Zentrum München and the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have developed the world's smallest ultrasound detector. It is based on miniaturized photonic circuits on top of a silicon chip. With ...

Hot ring produces microwave-powered ultrasound pulses wirelessly

Ultrasound imaging is one of the workhorses in a modern hospital. It hits the trifecta of being relatively cheap, portable and non-invasive. Causing future parents to get a bit emotional over fetus images is also an appreciated ...

Matrix imaging: an innovation for improving ultrasound resolution

In conventional ultrasounds, variations in soft tissue structure distort ultrasound wavefronts. They blur the image and can hence prove detrimental to medical diagnosis. Researchers at the Institut Langevin (CNRS/ESPCI Paris-PSL)1 ...

A novel method to precisely deliver therapeutics inside the body

A new way to deliver therapeutic proteins inside the body uses an acoustically sensitive carrier to encapsulate the proteins and ultrasound to image and guide the package to the exact location required, according to Penn ...

Dehydrating plant proteins at the speed of sound

Almost everyone is familiar with ultrasound—the high-frequency sound waves that bounce around in the body creating echo patterns that allow expectant parents to view their babies in the womb or clinicians to capture images ...
