Professor Carmel Moran
Personal Chair of Preclinical Ultrasound
The primary focus of my research is high frequency ultrasound and ultrasonic contrast agents. In 2008, with Wellcome Trust funding (£516K), I established the preclinical ultrasound imaging facility at the University of Edinburgh and have recently been part of a successful application to the Wellcome Trust to establish a preclinical large animal imaging facility. Using ultrasound imaging, we can image adult, neonates and embryonic hearts, livers and kidneys and study their structure and blood flow dynamics in real-time. Additionally using in-house and commerically available ultrasonic contrast agents, we can study the perfusion of organs. In collaboration with NHS colleagues, I am developing novel high resolution test phantoms for performance assessment of preclincial imaging techniques.
