News: Funding of 10 mill. euro was donated
from the Advanced Technology Foundation for a period of 5 years from 2013
to 2017 together with substantial funding from the commercial partners for a combined
budget of 20 mill. euro. The project is a collaboration between CFU, DTU Elektro and DTU Nanotech,
the companies BK Medical and Meggitt, the Alexandra Institute and Copenhagen University Hospital.
The project seeks to radically improve the application possibilities of ultrasound by
rethinking the technologies, and how ultrasound is used. Three new PhD positions have
been posted here.
The deadline for application is September 12. Please use
the electronic submission
system on the DTU web-site.
In 2013 we start our new Master education in Medicine & Technology
jointly offered with the University of Copenhagen.
You can find much more information in English
at the web-site: www.medicineandtechnology.org.
The education is given entirely in English and is taught jointly with
the Danish education in Medicine & Technology.
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

25 years at DTU
On January 1 2012 my 25 years jubilee at the University was celebrated. It
was a great day, and I want to thank everyone for coming and making it such a great day.
