Five papers Michiel Pertijs' group on IEEE International Ultrasonics Symposium (IUS)

At the coming IEEE International Ultrasonics Symposium (IUS), five papers will be presented that are (co)authored by the Ultrasound ASICs group supervised by Michiel Pertijs. IUS is IEEE’s primary forum for medical and industrial ultrasound research, and will be held in Washington in September.

Samprajani Rout's ISCAS 2017 paper among top papers of the conference

ISCAS 2017 paper No. 1849, entitled “Structured Electronic Design of High-Pass ΣΔ Converters and Their Application to Cardiac Signal Acquisition” has been selected (from 1000+ papers in total) as one of the top contributions to the conference and an extended version of the paper has been invited for the TBioCAS Special Issue on ISCAS 2017. Authors of the paper are Samprajani Rout and Wouter Serdijn (Section Bioelectronics)

NWO Take-Off Grant (Phase 1) for Ide Swager and Menno Gravemaker (Momo Medical) and Wouter Serdijn (Section Bioelectronics)

With their project proposal, entitled "Improving pressure ulcer prevention with smart mobility monitoring in healthcare institutions", they will take pressure ulcer prevention and MoMo Medical to the next level.

CSI-EPT: Towards Practical Implementation

The information of electrical properties of biological tissues within human body can be useful information for diagnosis, tissue characterization, hyperthermia treatment planning and MR safety control. Contrast Source Inversion Electrical Properties Tomography (CSI-EPT) is an MR base imaging modality, which reconstructs the electrical properties of the object. However, this method has not been implemented in practice due to the following issues: 1) The exact transmit phase, which is a necessary input of regular CSI-EPT algorithm, is not available from MR acquisitions. 2) The incident field, another input of CSI-EPT reconstruction, cannot be measured directly. 3) The reconstruction loses sensitivity at those regions with low electrical fields. 4) The sufficiency of the two-dimensional configuration, which has been used in most published results as an approximation
