Research field: Ultrasonic energy can penetrate into soft tissues noninvasively, and can be concentrated to deposit energy to reach a therapeutic level. Some well-known ultrasound therapeutic applications include thermal ablation (can be utilized to thermally ablate deep-seated tumors noninvasively), enhanced drug delivery, enhanced gene transfection, or enhanced sonoporations. Another important application of focused ultrasound is to disrupt blood-brain barrier and facilitate brain drug delivery. The aim of medical ultrasound lab is to develop novel technologies related to the therapeutic application using focused ultrasound especially for the liver thermal ablations and brain drug delivery.
