题 目：New Breast Ultrasound Imaging Concepts, and discussion of any topics of interest to participants
报告人：Prof. Paul L. Carson（University of Michigan Health System )
Automated 3D breast imaging with ultrasound will be compared with conventional hand directed real time imaging. Modern available commercial and research automated systems and their relative advantages will be compared, including our own work on Automated Ultrasound in the Mammographic geometry, AUSM. The potential advantages of ultrasound transmission tomography will be discussed, along with an explanation of its difficulty in pulse echo and transmission imaging of small breasts. A new, relatively inexpensive, pulse echo and transmission imaging approach we might consider together will outlined for further discussion.
Paul L. Carson received the B.S. degree from the Colorado College, Colorado Springs, CO, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Arizona, Tucson, AZ, in 1969 and 1971, all in physics. From 1971 to 1981, he served in the Department of Radiology at the University of Colorado Medical Center, Denver. Since 1981, he has served as associate professor, professor, and BRS Collegiate Professor in the Department of Radiology, and as a professor of Biomedical Engineering and member of the Applied Physics faculty, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI. He was Director of Basic Radiological Sciences in Radiology from 1981 to 2008. His responsibilities have been in research, clinical support, and teaching of radiological sciences. Research interests include medical ultrasound (quantitative imaging, functional imaging, equipment performance, safety, new or improved diagnostic and therapeutic instrumentation and applications including microbubble creation in body fluids in vivo, combined breast x-ray tomosynthesis/ultrasound, microwave, and photoacoustic tomography.
