Our lab studies novel therapies of focused ultrasound, a versatile technology with many applications, including treating neurological diseases and cancer. We use image guidance to better plan, monitor, and evaluate treatment efficacy as well as to understand basic science mechanisms. By leveraging our own lab's scientific and engineering expertise and working in collaboration with other labs, our goal is to improve these focused ultrasound therapies as they become more commonly used in the clinic.

New publication: Acoustic coordinated reset therapy for tinnitus with perceptually relevant frequency spacing and levels
The purpose of this article was to develop a more advanced, auditory filter-based theoretical basis for the selection of the acoustic neuromodulation signals that incorporates both a more perceptually relevant frequency scale relative to the frequency matched to the tinnitus pitch, as well as known changes associated with neuromodulation signal level and magnitude of sensorineural hearing loss at the frequency of the neuromodulation signal.
The lab got together for dinner to celebrate Kasra's wedding as well as welcome Zhihai to the lab.
Ningrui recently presented his science-based artwork at the 2019 Art of Science showcase.
The Hybrid Angular Spectrum (HAS) framework can be used to simulate the position, temperature, and shape of a focused ultrasound focal spot.
