Guy Cloutier, Ing., PhD.@
Full Professor and Research Director, Department of Radiology, Radio-Oncology and Nuclear Medicine, Université de Montréal
Research and development in several areas related to medical imaging applied to vascular pathologies, rheological disorders of blood circulation, and breast cancer.. Improvements to diagnosis and follow-up of hyper-erythrocyte aggregation, a pathological state promoting blood hyper viscosity and thrombotic side-effects, arterial atherosclerosis, venous thrombosis, vascular aneurysms, and cancer tumors with new imaging methods. Development of new methods to characterize the biomechanical properties of the abovementioned pathologies by ultrasound elastography. Ongoing collaborations with clinical scientists in radiology and cardiology, basic scientists specialized in cardiovascular pathologies, biomedical engineers, and medical physicists.
