Motion estimation using ultrasound plays an important role in clinical diagnosis. If done properly, it can yield estimates of both blood velocities and tissue displacements. The special topic school being held in Spring 2019 will provide students, researchers, and the curious with an in-depth foundation of motion estimation algorithms and the appropriate design of phantom testing protocols to evaluate the performance of these algorithms. Central to this one-week topical school is an integrative learning experience that covers both theoretical derivations and practical hands-on experiments that range from Matlab exercises to phantom fabrication and operations. After this course, attendees will become proficient with the main strings of theory and experimentation related to motion estimation.
The course will be held on the campus of INSA Lyon, France, April 22-26, 2019.
The lectures will be given by Olivier Bernard, Damien Garcia, Orçun Göksel, Hervé Liebgott, Monica Sigovan, François Varray, and Alfred Yu.
