Our research in imaging and optics takes ultrasound, MRI, and other imaging technologies in new directions which include the treatment and identification of disease and promoting growth. Michigan is an innovator in therapeutic ultrasound. Histotripsy, an extremely high-precision technique that uses ultrasound in non-invasive surgery, was invented here.
