Professor Parker receives NIH grant for H-scan ultrasound technology

September 10, 2018

Kevin Parker, the William F. May Professor of Engineering and dean emeritus of engineering, has received a grant from the National Institutes of Health to further refine his exciting H-scan ultrasound technology, which matches different classes of echoes from various cells and structures to different display colors. This makes it easier for clinicians to visualize and recognize subtle changes from normal to diseased tissues. The NIH funding will enable Kevin to address optimization issues to establish the technology as a viable diagnostic technique. This project will involve in-depth collaboration with the Medical Center’s departments of biostatistics and computational biology and pathology and laboratory medicine.
