Title Ultrasound Vector Velocity Imaging
Instructor(s) and Affiliation  Jensen Jørgen Arendt Jensen, Department of Electrical Engineering, Technical University of Denmark
Short biography of instructor(s) Jørgen Arendt Jensen is professor of biomedical signal processing and an IEEE Fellow. He has published more than 450 journal and conference papers on signal processing and medical ultrasound and the book “Estimation of Blood Velocities Using Ultrasound”, Cambridge University Press in 1996. His main contributions are within ultrasound imaging and simulation (Field II). He is the inventor of the transverse oscillation vector flow approach that was FDA approved and commercially introduced in a BK Medical ultrasound scanner in 2012. He has also been a pioneer in synthetic aperture imaging and especially fast vector flow imaging with both spherical and plane waves. Dr. Jensen has developed several systems for SA imaging and proven that these techniques can work in the clinic. He has also been involved in several clinical studies of vector flow imaging.
Abstract The short course gives an introduction to conventional velocity estimation to set the stage for understanding the latest vector velocity systems introduced on the market. The transverse oscillation approach will be explained along with speckle tracking and directional beamforming for true velocity estimation. The second part of the course covers advanced flow estimation methods using synthetic aperture and plane wave imaging for high resolution and very fast vector flow imaging. The theories will be inter-spaced with clinical examples of both commercial and experimental vector flow imaging.
Overview of topics covered Conventional velocity estimation, vector velocity estimation, transverse oscillation, speckle tracking, directional beamforming, synthetic aperture vector flow imaging, plane wave flow imaging, clinical examples and applications
Target audience PhD students and researchers interested in the latest velocity estimation techniques
