Parker Receives NIH Award

August 6, 2018

Professor Kevin Parker has received a grant from the National Institutes of Health to further refine his 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 between normal and diseased tissues. The NIH funding will enable Professor Parker to address optimization issues to establish the technology as a viable diagnostic technique. Co-investigators on the project include Dr. Michael Drage in the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine and Dr. Hongmei Yang of the Department of Biostatistics and Computational Biology.
