Research and Clinical Interests

  • Musculoskeletal ultrasound (use of ultrasound in shoulder, ankle and other joints. Diagnosis of tendons tears, tendinitis and other joint pathology. Use of ultrasound in sports medicine)
  • Use of ultrasound in fracture healing - use of therapeutic ultrasound in fracture healing and use of gray-scale and Doppler ultrasound in assessing vascularity in fracture healing.
  • Skin ultrasound - in Melanoma
  • Three-dimensional ultrasound - principles and applications of 3D ultrasound imaging in various modalities - Obstetrics and Gynecology, and Musculoskeletal imaging.
  • Contrast agents - use of ultrasound contrast agents to assess vascularity in organs and in tumor diagnosis - liver tumors, kidney tumors, Breast tumors, malignant melanoma.
