Ultrasound imaging is the fastest growing commercial sector in the medical imaging industry. Non-invasive and highly versatile, ultrasound also allows real-time imaging and is becoming increasingly portable and affordable, which paves the way for a growing number of new applications and users. However, ultrasound images remain difficult to interpret and acquire. My research aims to make ultrasound imaging easier to use for new applications and new users. This presentation will provide an overview of different aspects of my work that are related to this general objective, with an emphasis on my work applied to the study of articulatory phonetics.

The presentation will be given in English and the slides will be in French.

Catherine Laporte is a professor of electrical engineering at École de technologie supérieure since 2010. Her expertise lies in the area of medical image analysis, with a special focus on ultrasound imaging. Her current research aims at improving the usability of ultrasound imaging for new users and new applications. Previously, she obtained her M. Eng. and Ph.D. in computer engineering at McGill University’s Centre for Intelligent Machines, supervised by T. Arbel, and her B. Eng. degree at Polytechnique Montréal.
