Open Research Position for WSU Engineering Students in Biomedical Engineering

Open Research Position in Biomedical Engineering

Project Title: Design and implementation of a Photoacoustic imaging system on a programmable digital ultrasound scanner.

biomedical engineering

Email your resume to: Mohammad Mehrmohammadi, Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering
Email:, Phone: +1-313-577-8883

Faculty mehrmohammadi

  • Tentative start and completion dates: January – August, 2015
  • Expected time to spend in lab: >10 hours per week

Required Qualifications:

There is a need for one student with the following qualifications:
1- Undergraduate / Masters degree in Electrical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering Computer Engineering, and Physics are preferred.
2- Experienced in MATLAB is the key requirement for this position. Experience in object oriented programming languages such as C/C++/C# is a plus.
3- Strong familiarity with electronic/biomedical instrumentation (design, build and test), Signal and Image processing.
4- Familiarity with acoustic, optics, and medical ultrasound is a plus.
Highly talented and motivated students are welcome to get in touch.

Project Description:

Photoacoustic (PA) imaging is an emerging hybrid biomedical imaging technology with notable advantages for visualization and characterization of a variety of materials and biological tissues, including living organisms.In PA imaging, a tunable laser light is utilized to send non-ionizing laser pulses to various types of endogenous (such as blood) or exogenous (such as nano-sized contrast agents) optical absorbers within the tissue. Upon laser pulse excitation and through a phenomena called “Photoacoustics”, the laser energy is converted to heat, causing fast thermal expansion and thus generation of the acoustic waves. The generated acoustic waves can be picked up by an ultrasound receiver and reconstruct a map of optical absorption of the subject. The goal of this project is to develop a PA imaging system by using a fully digital, programmable ultrasound scanner (Verasonics Inc). Verasonics ultrasound scanner has a Matlab-based user interface which enable users to control all internal functions including timings, pulse-echo sequencing and beamforming. The main part of this project is to become familiar with internal architecture, timing and triggering of the Verasonics scanner, learn how to program the system (all in Matlab) through the systems’ detailed Users’ Manual, Programming guide, and sample scripts to eventually develop software scripts for PA on Verasonics system. The hardware development would be minimal for this project and at least in its initial phase.
