Advanced Biomedical Ultrasound Imaging and Therapy

Researchers: Jahan Tavakkoli, Michael Kolios

The “Advanced Biomedical Ultrasound Imaging and Therapy Laboratory” was established in 2007 through investments from the Canada Foundation for Innovation Leading Edge Fund (grant #11525) and a strategic investment by Ryerson University that was leveraged by an Ontario Research Fund-Research Excellence (ORF-RE) grant (grant #RE02-032) from the Ontario Ministry of Research and Innovation). The laboratory hosts an array of state-of-the-art biomedical ultrasound research and development resources to be used for various advanced research projects. Research projects span a range of topics in both therapeutic and diagnostic ultrasound. For more information, visit our facility page.
