Bio-ultrasonic medicine

2D phased array ultrasound beamformer (T.Costa el al, IEEE CICC 2019)

The emergence of Low-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (LIFU) neuromodulation is opening new possibilities for treatments of diseases related to the nervous system by providing both non-invasiveness and high spatial resolution. To overcome the bulky form-factors of existing handheld/helmet-like stimulators, we are researching novel microtechnologies by exploring CMOS integrated circuit design and integrated piezoelectric materials to enable wearable or minimally invasive bio-ultrasonic medicine
