Assessing the in vivo mechanical status of skeletal muscle noninvasively facilitates motility evaluation and rehabilitation planning to improve quality of life in general public, especially the aging group. However, in vivo mechanical and functional evaluation of skeletal muscle is recognized to be challenging due to the architectural and functional complexity of neuromuscular tissues. This talk presents our noninvasive method for the estimation of mechanical properties of skeletal muscle on the tissue level by ultrasound-based shear wave imaging (SWI) and strain imaging (SI). After introducing the principles of SWI and SI, we will focus on the nonlinear mechanical behavior of skeletal muscle in full scope from theoretical analysis (material modeling and acoustoelastic theory) to the experimental design and in vivo results on human biceps brachii.


Biography of the speaker:

Mr. Jinping Dong received his B.S and M.Phil degrees from Wuhan University, Wuhan, China, in 2012 and 2015, respectively. He worked as a research assistant in the Lee Ultrasound Imaging Group, EEE department, HKU from Sep 2015 to Aug 2016, then started his Ph.D study in the same lab in Sep 2016. His research interests include tissue characterization, acoustoelasticity, finite element simulation, and ultrasound phantom fabrication.


All are welcome.


Dr. W.N. Lee
