Research Topics

Ultrasonic electronics, a key medical technology, is applied in various ways, including measurement of biological information, diagnostic instruments, and therapeutic techniques. For example, a microcapsule injected into a blood vessel for ultrasonic imaging provides high-resolution diagnostic images, so-called harmonic images. In addition, applying a drug-containing microcapsule for DDS (drug delivery system) is expected to allow administration only to affected areas of the body under ultrasonic control. We conduct basic research on the biological effects of such acoustic waves and also develop new applications for them.
