主讲嘉宾简介:

Meng-Xing Tang is a Chair Professor of Biomedical Imaging and co-Director of Research in the Department of Bioengineering, Imperial College London. He founded and is currently leading the Ultrasound Laboratory for Imaging and Sensing (ULIS). Currently his group is focusing on developing new ultrasound imaging/tomography techniques, particularly of very high temporal and spatial resolution and image contrast, in order to quantify tissue structure, physiological flow, perfusion, and molecular information and explore their applications in cardiovascular diseases, cancer, and neurology. He has supervised 17 PhD students to successful completion, and has authored over 90 peer-reviewed journal papers and many conference papers. His research has been generously funded by the U.K. EPSRC, Cancer Research U.K., the British Heart Foundation, the Wellcome Trust, and the Royal Society. Prof. Tang is a on the management board of the Cancer Research Centre of Excellence, a new strategic partnership between Imperial College and Institute of Cancer Research. He is an Associate Editor of the IEEE T UFFC.

The advent of microbubble contrast agents has inspired new methods for imaging blood flow, tissue perfusion and molecular targets using contrast enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) in cardiovascular and oncological applications. Recent advances have shown that it is possible to achieve CEUS imaging in very high temporal (high frame rate / ultrafast imaging, up to tens of thousands of fps at centimeter depth) and spatial resolution (super-resolution imaging, down to microns at centimeter depth). Such techniques open up new opportunities to image fast moving targets (e.g. a beating heart, arterial flow) and small targets with weak signals (microvascular flow).
