Professor Parker Presents at CIRC Symposium

Professor Parker was invited to speak at the University of Rochester Center for Integrated Research Computing (CIRC) Symposia Series.  His talk, titled "Imaging the Biomechanical Properties of Tissues," reviewed the scope of conventional imaging techniques used to sense tissue displacements and calculate the intrinsic biomechanical properties such as stiffness and viscocity.  This presentation included pioneering work done at the University of Rochester, along with an overview of some important clinical applications, and the computational challenges.
