Biomedical Ultrasound Group
The Biomedical Ultrasound Group (BUG) provides a focus for research involving ultrasonics and acoustics within the Department of Medical Physics & Bioengineering. Ultrasound is the most commonly used modality for diagnostic imaging, but it is also used in clinical practice for guiding surgical procedures and as an ablative therapy, for example, for treating solid organ cancers. Ultrasound, on its own, and more recently in combination with optical sensing techniques, has a wide variety of applications in biomedical science, and provides a powerful technique for investigating tissue structure and function, as well as for monitoring and delivering novel therapies.
