On April 2017, I had the great opportunity to spend a few weeks at the Pontificia Universidad CatÃ³lica de Chile (UC), one of Chile’s best and oldest universities. Together with colleagues from KCL I visited the Biomedical Research Center (CIB) and the Electrical Engineering Department of UC.
Myelin is a substance that forms an insulating layer around nerve cells in the brain, playing an important role in normal brain function. Damage to myelin hinders transmission of signals and can have serious neurological consequences. Links to diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s are well-established. However, due to a compact molecular structure, it is difficult to image myelin using conventional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques and so it is ignored in existing microstructural models.
This September I attended the IEEE international Ultrasonics Symposium (IUS) in Washington D.C. There were over 1000 attendees and a total of 945 oral and poster presentations. I spent most of my time in the streams concerned with developments in ultrasound imaging and therapy. However, the conference was very broad and I also enjoyed gaining some insight into application of ultrasound technology outside of clinical applications.
