Project: Implementation and analysis of a reconstruction algorithm for generating 3D ultrasound images
Principal Investigator: Dimitre Hristov, PhD
Researched and implemented a reconstruction algorithm to generate three-dimensional images from two-dimensional ultrasound scans for potential use in an enhanced prostate cancer diagnostic tool; analyzed the reconstructed images to determine a quantitative model of the relationship between scan acquisition method and image spatial resolution.
