Qualification Details

Candidates should have a PhD degree electrical or biomedical engineering, computer science or a similar degree. The candidate must have the following qualifications:

  • You are motivated by both individual and team accomplishments
  • You thrive on collaboration and teamwork
  • You have worked in an ultrasound laboratory with advanced research scanners
  • Have worked with developing super resolution pipelines
  • Have prior knowledge of super resolution imaging
  • Have a desire to advance the field and help PhD students learn

Responsibilities/Job Description

The principle responsibility of the postdoc is to develop the processing pipeline for SRI and SURE imaging in 3-D for row-column matrix arrays and optimizing the quantitative data from the pipeline for both phantom, animal, and human data. Animal experiments are made with medical doctors at the University of Copenhagen, and the clinical studies are conducted in collaboration with Rigshospitalet in Copenhagen.

The research is conducted in a truly multi-disciplinary environment consisting of the 4 academic partners specializing in advanced ultrasound imaging, silicon CMUT probes, animal experiments, and clinical investigations, and the main purpose is to translate the SURE method from a research idea to the clinic.

The main task is to optimize the processing pipeline based on the previous work at CFU on synthetic aperture imaging data from row-column matrix arrays and to make target isolation and motion estimation in 3-D for high resolution motion correction and blood velocity estimation. This is integrated in our SURE processing framework and tested on 3D printed soft-tissue phantoms. The scheme is then implemented on our research scanners for pre-clinical trials and validation at the University of Copenhagen using GPU processing. The implementation will finally be clinically evaluated in human trials conducted together with the Department of Radiology at Rigshospitalet to reveal its efficacy.

About the Project/Department

The SURE project develops and researches a new super resolution ultrasound imaging method capable of resolving 3-D capillary flow in the human body. The approach tracks the motion of the individual red blood cells (erythrocytes) in a three-dimensional volume for a full visualization of anatomy, flow, and perfusion. The approach can potentially yield a paradigm shift in the scientific study, diagnoses, and treatment of cancer, diabetes, and vascular diseases at the capillary level, as it enables the possibility of volumetrically visualizing capillary perfusion in real-time at frame rates above 20 Hz without injection of contrast agents.

DTU Health Tech engages in research, education, and innovation base on technical and natural science for the healthcare sector. The Healthcare sector is a globally expanding market with demands for the most advanced technological solutions. DTU Health Tech creates the foundation for companies to develop new and innovative services and products which benefit people and create value for society. DTU Health Techs expertise spans from imaging and biosensor techniques, across digital health and biological modelling, to biopharma technologies. The department has a scientific staff of about 210 persons, 130 PhD students and a technical/administrative support staff of about 160 persons, of which a large majority contributes to our research infrastructure and related commercial activities.
