Abstract: Lecture will include an analytical overview of medical UltraSound (US) imaging. Starting with a small historical overview of US imaging evolution, and presentation of the advantages of US imaging. Then passing into the physical principles of sound theory (i.e. sound propagation, acoustic impedance, sound reflection, attenuation) on which US imaging is based on, along with imaging limitations that occur due to physical constrains. After that a presentation of the steps followed in order to produce an ultrasound image (available US imaging modes will be presented) will take place, focusing in the available transducers, beam forming, focusing, depth of focus and US image resolution. A complete presentation of US ability to image blood flow is included (either based on Doppler effect or on advanced techniques using cross-correlation). The presentation concludes by showing most advanced modern US imaging techniques, such as Ultrasound Contrast Agent (UCA) imaging, US 3D imaging, and US based elastography.
Aristeidis Dermitzakis holds a diploma in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Patras, Greece, as well as an MSc Diploma and a PhD Degree in Biomedical Engineering (BME) from the Interdepartmental Postgraduate Programme on BME, coorganized by the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Patras, the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and the Faculty of Electrical and Computer Engineering of the National Technical University of Athens. He has been collaborating with the Biomedical Technology Unit since 2008. During this period he has been giving lectures on Medical Imaging, has gained experimental research grants for X-ray imaging projects and has participated or taken grant in numerous Greek and European research projects as a researcher. Amongst them, one can find a collaborating research program with Sony Inc., the Aristeia “Phase Contrast Imaging Simulation and Reconstruction Algorithms for Digital Breast Tomosynthesis (PISRA4B)” project, the FP7 “Quantitative Inspection of Complex Composite Aeronautic Parts Using Advances X-ray techniques (QUICOM)” project, as well as two TEMPUS projects related with studies in the field of BME, the CRH-BME (Curricula Reformation and Harmonisation in the field of Biomedical Engineering) and the BME-ENA (Biomedical Engineering Education Tempus Initiative in Eastern Neighbouring Area). His research results have also been presented in more than 20 papers in peer-reviewed journals and/or in National and International peer reviewed Conferences. Additionally he has been patent holder for a novel X-ray Imaging Technique. His research interests are related with Biomedical Engineering, Medical Imaging, X-Ray Imaging Simulation, 3D X-ray Image Reconstruction, Dual Energy X-Ray Imaging, X-ray Image Filtering, Image Enhancement, GPU Computing, Sparse Representations and Health Technology Assessment. Through his research, he has gained research experience, established international collaborations, and developed managerial. Having gained great experience in collaborating with researchers from different fields. Expect for research activities he has participated in educational international projects (CRE-BME, BME-ENA) aiming to reform and harmonize the curricula of BME studies in under and post graduate level and help in the establishment of new BME post graduate courses in Eastern Europe Neighboring Area.
