Dear All,
I have the pleasure to invite you for the talk “Biomedical Applications of Quantitative Ultrasound”

of our guest Dr. Jonathan Mamou from Frederic L. Lizzi Center for Biomedical Engineering at Riverside Research, New York City, USA.

The talk will be on Wednesday 30-01 at 2 PM  in seminar room 0.0028 (CVK, BCRT building  – Südstraße 2 / Föhrer Str. 15, 13353 Berlin).

Dr. Mamou is an internationally recognized leading researcher in biomedical ultrasound. In 2011, he received the Young Scientist Award at the 32nd Symposium on Ultrasonic Electronics in Chiba, Japan. This award is given to a select group of investigators under the age of 37 who present an outstanding paper at the Symposium. Dr. Mamou’s selection for this distinguished award was based on his paper, “Detection and Localization of Small Metastatic Foci in Human Lymph Nodes Using Three-dimensional High-frequency Quantitative Ultrasound Methods.” That same year, Dr. Mamou was selected as one of only 300 researchers worldwide to participate in the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) Invitation Fellowship Program, an experience that resulted in meaningful collaborations with the Chiba University Center for Frontier Medical Engineering.

Dr. Mamou received his doctorate in electrical engineering in 2005 from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. His 13 years of experience in biomedical ultrasound research include 29 peer-reviewed articles in technical journals.

He is the co-editor of the recently published book Quantitative Ultrasound in Soft Tissues, a 15-chapter compilation reviewing the state of the art and clinical applications of quantitative ultrasound and ultrasonic backscatter estimation. According to Springer, the book’s publisher, numerous advances in signal processing and computer hardware over the last 15 years have brought quantitative ultrasound (QUS) techniques to a state of maturity, allowing for the construction of quantitative maps or images of soft tissues. This technological push has prompted the need for a specialized book to be written in the field of quantitative ultrasound.
