Abstract

The Advanced Biomedical Ultrasound Imaging and Therapy Laboratory (ABUITL), a 1600 square-foot research laboratory jointly affiliated to Ryerson University and St. Michael’s Hospital, is one of the leading research laboratories in the field of biomedical ultrasound in Canada. The laboratory was established in 2007 in the Dept. of Physics, Ryerson University and was relocated to iBEST (Institute for Biomedical Engineering, Science and Technology) in St. Michael’s Hospital in September 2015. The laboratory hosts an array of research equipment in diagnostic and therapeutic biomedical ultrasound and has been active in conducting research and development and the training of highly qualified personnel (HQP) in the field. The scope of the research projects in the laboratory spans from ultrasound basic science and the investigation of biophysical mechanisms of the interactions of ultrasound with cells and tissues to novel clinical applications in all main areas of biomedical ultrasound.
