Three cover pages for ultrasound neuroimaging
Three of our recent studies using ultrasound neuroimaging were selected by journal editors to make the cover page in the past few months:
- first-in-human demonstration of ultrasound brain microangiography, published in Nature Biomedical Engineering in March
- study of pain mechanism using ultrafast ultrasound imaging of the spinal cord, released in Pain journal in April
- use of functional ultrasound for brain-machine-interface applications, published by our collaborators at CalTech Institute in Neuron in May
This recognition by the research community underlines the potential of functional ultrasound imaging and ultrasound super-localization microscopy to address fundamental questions in neuroscience as well as clinical needs in neurology.
