Group name: Laboratory of ultrafast Ultrasound Neuroimaging in Clinics
Group type: Main
Affiliations: Faculty of Medicine, Geneva University Hospitals, Department of Clinical Neurosciences
Domains: Development and Plasticity
Keywords: brain imaging, cerebrovascular disease, techniques development
Our projects, based on ultrafast ultrasound, a revolutionary noninvasive imaging tool, are dealing with its methodological developments in neurology and in particular in cerebrovascular diseases. They are intended to assess biomechanical properties of the cerebral vessels in various pathologies (aneurysm, vasculitis, atheromatosis), microcirculation (functional imaging), cerebrovascular blood flow and perfusion (modification, regulation) in ischemia (stroke, vasospasm) and in intracranial hyper- or hypotension.
