In-Vivo Study of Passive Musculotendon Mechanics in Chronic Hemispheric Stroke Survivors
We characterized the passive mechanical properties of the affected and contralateral musculotendon units in 9 chronic stroke survivors as well as in 6 neurologically-intact controls. Using a position-controlled motor, we precisely indented the distal tendon of the biceps brachii to... Read more

A Deep Learning Framework for Single-Sided Sound Speed Inversion in Medical Ultrasound
Abnormalities in the tissue’s mechanical properties and structure, as well as their spatial arrangement, are useful in disease diagnosis and monitoring of disease progression. To this end, ultrasound shear wave elastography is gaining traction as a useful diagnostic tool for... Read more

Quantitative Assessment of Changes in Muscle Contractility Due to Fatigue During NMES: An Ultrasound Imaging Approach
Neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) has been demonstrated to activate paralyzed or paretic muscles that in turn help restore limb functions (e.g., standing, walking, upper limb functions such as grasp and reaching) of persons with stroke, hemiplegia, paraplegia and other neurological...

Real-Time Photoacoustic Thermometry Combined with Clinical Ultrasound Imaging and High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound
        High intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) treatment is a promising non-invasive method for killing or destroying the diseased tissues by locally delivering thermal and mechanical energy without damaging surrounding normal tissues. In HIFU, measuring the temperature at the treatment site is... Read more

A Comparison of Ultrasound Intima-media Thickness Measurements of the Left and Right Common Carotid Artery
The intima-media (IMT) thickness of the common carotid artery is an established indicator of cardiovascular disease, and the difference between the left and the right sides of the CCA IMT may have important implications for cardiovascular disease diagnosis and management.... Read more
