Title:  Ultrasound elastography: from atherosclerosis to understanding the pancreatic cancer tumor microenvironment

Abstract:  Elastography is emerging as an imaging technique for visualizing the mechanical properties within biological tissues.  During the last five years, my group has been actively developing novel elastographic imaging techniques to visualize the structural properties of life-threatening atherosclerotic plaques. Recently we have been using these strategies to understanding how tumor microenvironment impacts the stiffness of the extracellular matrix.  In this talk, I will discuss progress we have made in vascular elastography and pancreatic cancer imaging.

Biography: Marvin M. Doyley received his PhD degree in biophysics from the Institute of Cancer Research (Sutton), University of London in 2000. Following post-doctoral training at Erasmus University and Dartmouth College, he joined the faculty of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Rochester in 2008.  Dr. Doyley is currently Chair and Professor of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, with joint appointments in the Departments of Biomedical Engineering and Imaging Sciences.  His Parametric Imaging Research Laboratory at the University of Rochester concentrates their efforts in the areas of non-invasive vascular imaging, model-based intravascular ultrasound elastography, high frequency nonlinear ultrasound imaging, and molecular imaging for pancreatic cancer. Dr. Doyley is a fellow of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE). He currently serves on the editorial boards of IEEE Transactions on Ultrasonics, Ferroelectrics, and Frequency Control, SPIE Journal of Medical Imaging, Physics in Medicine and Biology, and Nature Scientific Reports.
