Ultrahigh frequency ultrasound microbeam for biomedical applications
Time: 10:30 am ~ 11:30 am, June 22 (Friday)
Location: Room #104, Center for Biomedical Imaging Research, Tsinghua University
Speaker: Dr. K. Kirk Shung (Department of Biomedical Engineering, University of Southern California)
 
Abstract:
Ultrahigh frequency (100 MHz – 1 GHz) focused ultrasonic beam or microbeam may find many biomedical applications in addition to imaging. For the further advance of the technology, sensitive UHF transducers must be developed. In this talk, conventional and new approaches for the design and fabrications of UHF transducers will be discussed along with ultrasound microbeam applications including single beam acoustic microparticle or cell trapping, and UHF ultrasonic cell sorting.
 
Biography
K. Kirk Shung obtained a B.S. in electrical engineering from Cheng-Kung University in Taiwan in 1968, a M.S. in electrical engineering from University of Missouri, Columbia, MO in 1970 and a Ph.D. in electrical engineering from University of Washington, Seattle, WA, in 1975. He had taught at Pennsylvania State University, University Park, PA for 23 years before moving to the Department of Biomedical Engineering, University of Southern California, Los Angeles, CA, as a professor in 2002. He has been the director of NIH Resource on Medical Ultrasonic Transducer Technology since 1997.
 
Dr. Shung is a life fellow of IEEE, and a fellow of the Acoustical Society of America and American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine. He is a founding fellow of American Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering. He received the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society Early Career Award in 1985 and was the coauthor of a paper that received the best paper award for IEEE Transactions on Ultrasonics, Ferroelectrics and Frequency Control (UFFC) in 2000. He was elected an outstanding alumnus of Cheng-Kung University in Taiwan in 2001. He was selected as the distinguished lecturer for the IEEE UFFC society for 2002-2003. He received the Holmes Pioneer Award in Basic Science from American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine in 2010. He was selected to receive the academic career achievement award from the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society in 2011.
 
Dr. Shung has published more than 400 papers and book chapters. He is the author of a textbook “Principles of Medical Imaging” published by Academic Press in 1992 and a textbook “Diagnostic Ultrasound: Imaging and Blood Flow Measurements” published by CRC press in 2005. He co-edited a book “Ultrasonic Scattering by Biological Tissues” published by CRC Press in 1993. He is an associate editor of IEEE Transactions on UFFC and a member of the editorial board of Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology. Dr. Shung’s research interest is in ultrasonic transducers, high frequency ultrasonic imaging, ultrasound microbeam, and ultrasonic scattering in tissues.
