About Us

Pengfei Song ultrasound research laboratory at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC)

Why ultrasound?

Ultrasound is a valuable and unique modality that can be used to both image and treat patients in the clinic. It is safe, cost-effective, free of ionizing radiation, and widely accessible around the world. Ultrasound-based diagnostic and therapeutic technologies have a clear pathway of clinical translation and achieving global impact on patient care.

What do we do?

Our group focuses on developing and translating cutting-edge ultrasound technologies to close the gap between clinical practice and unmet patient needs. We are currently concentrating on advancing super-resolution microvessel imaging and elasticity imaging technologies to early diagnose cancer and early predict cancer treatment response. We are also actively working on using ultrasound to monitor neural activities in the brain and in the spinal cord.
