Medical Ultrasonics Laboratory (MEDUSA)

Medusa GIF

Sound provides unconventional means to manipulate human tissue on microscopic and macroscopic levels. When intended, ultrasonic exposures generating sonic force fields can be applied from a distance, e.g. through the skin, in a non-destructive manner. The goal of MEDUSA is to discover and develop new platform technologies exploiting non-linear ultrasonics for conducting therapeutic or diagnostic tasks. A strong incentive exists to translate these research technologies to the clinic. Our recent research interests include e.g. ultrasonic drug delivery for osteoarthritis therapy and ultrasound-enhanced cancer diagnostics.

The laboratory is headed by Asst. Prof. Heikki Nieminen.
