Gregg Trahey

Robert Plonsey Professor of Biomedical Engineering (2000 - 2005)

Professor Gregg Trahey, a specialist in medical imaging research, has made various contributions to the development of ultrasounds, image guided surgery, and radiation force imaging. His distinguished laboratory uses state-of-the-art clinical phased array scanners to design custom transducer arrays, produce novel methods of signal transmission, and conduct trials of these methods. One of his distinguished accomplishments is the creation of Acoustic Radiation Force Impulse (ARFI) imaging that is used to detect liver cancers and guide minimally invasive surgeries of liver and kidney cancer.
