Modern Medical Ultrasound Technology

Presented by
Jens U. Quistgaard, PhD
President and CEO of Mirabilis Medical Inc.
The Pacific Northwest Section of the AES

Wednesday, September 14th, 2016, 7:30pm
Shoreline Community College, Music Building, Rm 818
Directions to Shoreline CC

Medical ultrasound technology has been used clinically since the late 1930's, and is widely used today in both diagnostic and therapeutic applications. While ultrasound shares many characteristics with audible sound, important characteristics manifest at high frequencies that need to be considered in acoustic design. This talk gives a high-level overview of modern diagnostic and therapeutic ultrasound technology, highlighting similarities and differences between ultrasound and audio frequency design.
