Dalecki Lab

Research Overview

The Dalecki laboratory is dedicated to advancing the use of ultrasound in medicine and biology. Primary goals of the laboratory are to advance novel diagnostic ultrasound techniques, and to discover and develop new therapeutic applications of ultrasound. Research in the Dalecki laboratory is highly multidisciplinary and spans the fields of biomedical ultrasound, acoustics, medical imaging, cell and tissue engineering, and biomechanics. Areas of focus in our laboratory include:

  • Diagnostic Ultrasound Imaging
  • Therapeutic Applications of Ultrasound
  • Low Frequency Underwater Sound Fields

In the Dalecki lab, efforts concentrate on identifying the molecular, cellular, physiological, and physical mechanisms for the interaction of ultrasound fields with biological tissues. Knowledge of basic mechanisms facilitates the safe and effective development of new diagnostic and therapeutic ultrasound techniques. Please see the side bar for further information on specific Current Research Projects in the Dalecki laboratory.
