M. Tanter awarded the Inserm Opecst Prize 2014

The Opecst-Inserm Prize for 2014 is being awarded to Mickaël Tanter, for his involvement in the development of ultrafast Ultrasound imaging from academic research to industry and clinical translation. Ultrafast imaging is leading today to new imaging modalities in medical ultrasound. It ranges from quantitative elasticity imaging for cancer diagnosis to ultrasensitive Doppler imaging for functional […]

Publication in Nature Comm. on resting state fUltrasound Imaging

October 3rd, 2014 – Our work on Functional Ultrasound Imaging of intrinsic connectivity in the living rat Brain  is published in Nature Communications   The results presented in this manuscript provide the first evidence of  fUltrasound as a new neuroimaging modality for the study of small animal whole brain functional connectivity. The brain dynamically integrates and coordinates the respose to internal and […]

fUltrasound tracks odor representation in the brain

NATIONAL PRESS RELEASE I PARIS I 11 JULY 2014 fUltrasound imaging recently provided the first ever in vivo visualization of activity in the piriform cortex of rats during odor perception. This deep-seated brain structure plays an important role in olfaction, and was inaccessible to functional imaging until now. This work also sheds new light on the […]

Seminal paper on fUltrasound imaging in Nature Methods

In 2011, we published a seminal paper on fUltrasound imaging of the living rat brain in Nature Methods. Short Abstract : We present functional ultrasound (fUS), a method for imaging transient changes in blood volume in the whole brain at better spatiotemporal resolution than with other functional brain imaging modalities. fUS uses plane-wave illumination at […]

Seminal paper on Ultrafast Doppler imaging

fUltrasound is based on Ultrafast Doppler imaging. This new way of performing Doppler imaging in Ultrasound was presented in a seminal publication in IEEE Transactions on Ultrasonics, Ferroelectrics and Frequency Control in 2010. Doppler-based flow analysis methods require acquisition of ultrasound data at high spatio-temporal sampling rates. These rates represent a major technical challenge for […]
