Why Quantitative Ultrasound

We live in the era of precision medicine with data-driven decision-making, in which patient care is personalized to achieve the best possible outcomes. Key to the personalization of patient care is the need for objective information about the structure and function of the tissues that compose the body of each patient. Ultrasound imaging can play an important role as a source of this information due to its potential as a tool for measuring quantitative properties of tissue at several spatial and temporal scales. This particular use of ultrasound imaging is referred to as Quantitative ultrasound. Moreover, because of the safety, portability, and cost-effectiveness of ultrasound imaging, our research in quantitative ultrasound contributes to extend the benefits of precision medicine to more patients, from small clinics in rural areas to the intensive care units of third level hospitals.
