Innovation Fund Denmark awarded five new prizes at the EliteForsk award ceremony at Glyptoteket in Copenhagen on 23 February. The prizes covered three categories: Grand Solutions, Innovator of the Year, and Talents of the Year.

Grans solutions prize 2017

Professor Jørgen Arendt Jensen from DTU Electrical Engineering and Erik Vilain Thomas from DTU Nanotech received Innovation Fund Denmark's Grand Solutions prize, DKK 1 million (EUR 134,000) for their research, and a visual work of art by photographer Nicolai Howalt.

The two DTU researchers received the award for developing a new way to perform ultrasound scans—using a portable ultrasound scanner which can be used in hospitals or ambulances, at the doctor’s clinic, or in the patient’s home. It also costs only a tenth of what a conventional scanner costs, is easier to use, and produces better images. This leads to savings, better diagnosis and shorter waiting times.

Innovation Fund Denmark explained their decision as follows:

“The project has developed radical new methods for producing ultrasound images. Professor Jørgen Arendt Jensen has played a key role in the development of algorithms for imaging, while Erik Vilain Thomsen has been responsible for developing scanner heads for row-column scanning. There has also been close collaboration with BK Ultrasound. This has allowed further innovation among other Danish commercial players. Special emphasis was given to the specific and documentable value creation and the effective cooperation between research and industry.”

Background


I am professor of Biomedical Signal Processing at the Department of Electrical Engineering (DTU Elektro), the Technical University of Denmark. My main interest is the application of digital signal processing to medical ultrasound; especially synthetic aperture imaging, vector flow imaging, and ultrasound simulation. This includes development of algorithms for performing fast acquisition of clinical images, characterization and development of estimation algorithms for determining vector blood velocities, development of research systems for ultrasound imaging, and efficient and accurate simulation of ultrasound systems.

I received the M.Sc. in electrical engineering in 1985, the Ph.D. in 1989 for work on deconvolution, and the Dr. Techn. degree in 1996 for my work on blood velocity estimation in the book: "Estimation of Blood Velocities Using Ultrasound, A Signal Processing Approach", which was published by Cambridge University Press in 1996. I have been full professor at DTU since 1993 and I have been a visiting scientist at Duke University, North Carolina, Stanford University, California, and University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaing, all in the US. I became an IEEE Fellow in 2012.

Currently I head the Center for Fast Ultrasound Imaging. You can find a description of the center and its research on the web-site link above.

I teach in courses on medical imaging. Links can be found on the left. I am also one of the initiators of the biomedical engineering education jointly offered by the Technical University of Denmark and the University of Copenhagen. You can find more information (in Danish) about the education at: DTU. Our English education in Biomedical Engineering can be found at: www.medicineandtechnology.org.
