of Biorheology and
The Laboratory of Biorheology and Medical Ultrasonics (LBMU) pursues researches in medical imaging and blood rheology. Our research programs intend to improve the diagnostic and follow-up of hyper-erythrocyte aggregation, a pathological state promoting the hyper-viscosity of blood and thrombotic side effects, arterial atherosclerosis, vascular aneurysms, deep vein thrombosis and breast tumors with new imaging methods. The LBMU is also developing new methods to characterize the biomechanical properties of the vascular wall with ultrasound elastography. These research projects are realized in collaboration with clinical scientists, radiologists and cardiologists, fundamental scientists specialized in cardiovascular pathologies, biomedical engineers, and medical physicists.
