Title: Sub-Cellular Imaging Arrays from Arrays of Ultra-High Frequency Ultrasound Transducers
Description: Researchers at the Siteman Center of Cancer Nanotechnology Excellence at Washington University School of Medicine are leveraging techniques developed with the semiconductor industry to develop sub-cellular imaging arrays. This custom fabricated silicon wafer is patterned with arrays of ultra-high frequency ultrasound transducers. Designed to operate in the low-GHz frequency range, real-time 3-D volumetric images of living cells will be obtainable with sub-micron resolution.
