International Symposium on

Ultrasonic Imaging and Tissue Characterization

May 30 – June 1, 2018 Westin Arlington Gateway, Arlington, VA


The Symposium provides a forum for discussion of new directions in state-of-the-art technology and research opportunities in ultrasonic and photoacoustic imaging and characterization of tissues. The meeting affords physicians, engineers and physical scientists a unique venue for sharing their contributions to this important area of technology development related to disease detection, diagnosis, staging, treatment planning and treatment monitoring.


1 Techniques for measuring ultrasonic properties of tissue, e.g., velocity, attenuation, scattering, nonlinear effects

2 Ultrasonic imaging, photoacoustic imaging and Doppler techniques, including transducer and array technology

3 Signal processing and pattern recognition

4 Ultrasound-guided intervention and robotic ultrasound imaging

5 Ultrasonic and photoacoustic characteristics of tissue and their dependence on physical and biological variables
