Towards real-time magnetomotive ultrasound imaging

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingPaper in conference proceeding


Magnetomotive ultrasound (MMUS) imaging indirectly enables visualization of magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs) with ultrasound. An external time varying magnetic field displaces MNPs and thus their closest surrounding, the induced displacement is tracked in the US data and color-coded on B-mode images. However, images are currently processed offline, which is time consuming and precludes clinical use of MMUS. In this work, the previously proposed MMUS algorithm (DOI: TUFFC.2013.2591) is automated and implemented online on the ULA-OP scanner.
