  1. Resource Description
    "The goals of the research laboratory are: • To develop new ultrasound technologies and clinical applications • To bridge the gap between technology and clinical applications • To provide ultrasound imaging resources to other research groups within the Penn community and in other institutions The laboratory consists of a core group of scientists, sonographers and technicians with expertise in ultrasound technology and computer programming. This group works with clinicians in multiple specialties; including radiologists, cardiologists and surgeons. Ultrasound Research Services, an arm of the laboratory, furnishes a state-of-the-art ultrasound scanner dedicated to research and serves the research community. There is a full-time sonographer and a part-time radiologist on staff to conduct clinical and pre-clinical imaging. The research laboratory has been a valuable resource to several groups working on diverse projects. These include studies involving the measurement of angiogenesis, vascularity, tissue elasticity, contrast agents, and the effects of various physical and pharmaceutical agents on blood flow and tissue vascularity. The studies span a range of clinical areas including research on cancer, cardiovascular disease and musculoskeletal disease."
