Postdoc in Ultrasound Beamforming and 3D Image Reconstruction (Centrale Nantes)

Monday 5th October 2020

Closing Date: 1 Nov 2020 (as soon as possible)

The purpose of the post-doctoral position is to conceive, implement and validate innovative methods to improve the quality of 2D and 3D ultrasound images resulting from the fusion of multiple signal samples, e.g. under different positioning and/or acquisition parameters. The successful candidate will take advantage of a recently arrived research ultrasound machine capable of parallel PWI acquisitions with 128 channels at a very high throughput rate while giving access to raw data. Methodologically, the challenges will be linked to the recovery of high-quality images (beamforming) improving detection and localization capabilities, modeling the uncertainty of the measures, and favoring the image reconstruction speed. Given the possibility of controlling the acquisition through the computer, the design of co-conception loops will also be considered to improve beamforming for specific applications. 

The methods proposed during the research project should build on one or several of the following approaches:

* Optimization methods for solving inverse problems (sparsity constraints, global regularization, …)
* Computational tools for geometric multi-view image reconstruction
* Statistical and Machine Learning approaches (e.g. fusion, super-resolution, …)
