Ultrasonic imaging is non-ionizing, real-time, cost-efficient, and portable. These unique advantages make it a prominent tool in modern medicine. Our group is working to advance medical ultrasound by developing new imaging technologies and processing algorithms. We test our methods in specially designed tissue mimicking materials, ex vivo tissue preparations, and in vivo studies.
We are a part of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, North Carolina State University Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering. Our laboratory is located on the campus of UNC Chapel Hill. The Gallippi Lab is a proud member of the Ultrasound Research Association of North Carolina, which comprises the laboratories of multiple investigators working in the area of medical ultrasound technology development across the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill region of North Carolina.
