Position: PhD Scholarship in 3D Cardiac Imaging
Institution: Technical University of Denmark
Department: DTU Electrical Eng
Location: Kongens Lyngby, Lyngby‐Taarbæk Municipality, Denmark
Duties: The main task is to develop and implement a proper imaging scheme for 3D flow estimation on 2D CMUT arrays with an acoustic window suitable for cardiac imaging. The imaging scheme will be based on 2D synthetic aperture estimators pioneered at CFU, which enable high precision 2D velocity estimation at high frame rates. After implementation on a research scanner, the scheme is tested in customized flow phantoms as well as in a pre-clinical trial. The pre-clinical trial is performed in collaboration with the Heart Centre at Rigshospitalet, where scans are made first on healthy volunteers and next on patients. The goal is to visualize flow phenomena such as the jets related to valve stenosis in 3D
Requirements: Candidates should hold a MSc in engineering, physics or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to the MSc in engineering. Experience with digital signal processing is desirable. Knowledge of medical imaging and acoustics will also be beneficial

Apply online A 3-year PhD scholarship is available at the Center for Fast Ultrasound Imaging (CFU), DTU Elektro from June 2017. The PhD project is a collaboration between DTU Elektro, DTU Nanotech, and Copenhagen University Hospital in Denmark (Rigshospitalet). This project seeks to develop and implement 3D velocity estimators on row-column 2D capacitive micro machined ultrasound transducer (CMUT) arrays applicable in echocardiography. Echocardiography is the preferred method for diagnosing aortic valve stenosis. Current methods are based on 2D anatomical scans and 1D velocity estimation, but would benefit from being developed in to 3D with regard to both anatomy and flow visualization. Three-dimensional flow estimation in the heart requires development of new imaging schemes that must have a high temporal resolution to fully capture the unique features of the heart cycle. The research is conducted in a truly multi-disciplinary environment consisting of three academic partners specializing in advanced ultrasound imaging, silicon CMUT probes, and cardiology. Responsibility and tasks The main task is to develop and implement a proper imaging scheme for 3D flow estimation on 2D CMUT arrays with an acoustic window suitable for cardiac imaging. The imaging scheme will be based on 2D synthetic aperture estimators pioneered at CFU, which enable high precision 2D velocity estimation at high frame rates.

Qualifications Candidates should hold a MSc in engineering, physics or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to the MSc in engineering. Experience with digital signal processing is desirable. Knowledge of medical imaging and acoustics will also be beneficial. Approval and Enrolment The scholarships for the PhD degree are subject to academic approval, and the candidates will be enrolled in one of the general degree programmes of DTU. For information about the general requirements for enrolment and the general planning of the scholarship studies, please see the DTU PhD Guide .
