IEEE Carl Hellmuth Hertz Ultrasonics Award

The IEEE Carl Hellmuth Hertz Ultrasonics award is intended for primary investigators that have contributed to the field of ultrasonics. The award candidate has an excellent track record in terms of scholarly publications, technical reports and/or inventions/patents. The award is intended to recognize the investigators for their outstanding mid-career achievements and for promoting the field of Ultrasonics. This award was named for Carl Hellmuth Hertz to honor his pivotal role as both a researcher and as an advisor to others working in the field of medical diagnostic ultrasound imaging.
