Girls in Engineering event
In November, Rachel visited the Boeing flight services site to volunteer at a Girls in Engineering STEM event. 3 schools took part in the event and the girls were split into groups of 5 to compete in 3 different engineering challenges. Rachel gave a talk to the year 8 girls about her path through engineering as a woman and discussed her current work with acoustic holograms.
The event was a great success! The girls were excited to try all the activities and came away with a better understanding of the broad range of STEM subjects available.
New Scientist Live
The QUIIN lab were pleased to have the opportunity to host demonstrations of their research at this year's New Scientist Live, held at the ExCel Arena in London. Across three days attendees were able to get to grips with ultrasound imaging, performing hopefully the first of many ultrasound scans and to see up-close the effect sound can have on bubbles.
The lab had a great time at the event and hopefully inspired the next generation of ultrasound experts!
September 3 - 8, 2023
The lab travelled to Montreal for the annual IEEE Interal Ultrasonics Symposium in September. Our presentations and posters included:
Micro-Vasculature Phantom for Ultrasound Super-Resolution Imaging
Multi-Modal Confirmation of Thermosensitive Liposome Delivery to the Brain After FUS-Induced Blood-Brain Barrier Opening for the Treatment of Diffuse Midline Glioma
Measuring MRI Signal of Gd-Labelled An�bodies and Liposomes for Confirming UltrasoundMediated Delivery Into the Brain
The 2023 Artimino Conference on Medical Ultrasound Technology
In June 2023 Jaime and Paul attended the Artimino Conference on Medical Ultrasound Technology in Tuscany, Italy. Paul presented his work on three-probe ultrasound imaging, and the conference featured many other interesting talks.
The conference was also a great opportunity to catch up with our collaborators and hosts from the MSE Lab in Florence.
Winter School on Therapeutic Ultrasound 2023
In March 2023 Amelia and Rachel attended a one week course in Les Houches, France, on Therapeutic Ultrasound, hosted by Ecole de Physiques des Houches.
Lectures and Presentations included:
Focusing Ultrasound in complex media: the role of Time Reversal Mirrors, by Jean-Francois Aubry
Histology for therapeutic ultrasound, by Gail ter Haar
Histotripsy, by Vera Khokhlova
and many more interesting talks
The school was also a great opportunity to meet other PhD students and learn about the amazing work they are doing.
October 10 - 13, 2022
This October the QUIIN lab and collaborators will be presenting at the International Ultrasonics Symposium in Venice!
Lectures and Presentations include:
Specific Delay Multiply and Sum Beamforming for 2-D and 3-D Coherent Multi-Transducer Ultrasound Imaging
Towards multi-probe high frame rate volumetric vector Doppler imaging: a feasibility study
Experimental demonstration of the coherent use of two sparse arrays for 3-D imaging
Classification of Cortical Bone Thicknesses Based on RF Signal Spectral Analysis
Estimation of Cortical Bone Strength Using CNN-Based Regression Model
Come and find us! We look forward to meeting you.

Kirsten and Antonis had fun discussing ultrasound and scanning buckets with sponges, together with enthusiastic young scientists! In an event full of hands-on activities and superheroes, more than 30 children did their first ultrasound scan - but not the last!
Stay tuned for more outreach activities from our group!
Meet the superheroes: UltraSonic
August 9, 2022
Kirsten will show off her UltraSonic superpowers in the Superheroes Unlimited 2022 event at the Institute of Physics. The event will take place on Saturday 20 August 2022, 10am - 4pm, and it will be suitable for families. Please join her to discover the power of ultrasound and bubbles!
Our lab was awarded the 2022 Little Princess Trust Innovation Grant! The award will support a 3-year project on paediatric brain tumour treatment using focused ultrasound and thermosensitive liposomes. A big thank you to the Little Princess Trust for making this work possible!
Little Princess Trust Innovation Grant awarded to our lab!

QUIIN website is live!
June 28, 2022
Our brand new website is launched! The Quantitative Ultrasound Imaging & Interventions (QUIIN) laboratory at King's College London was established in 2022. We are in the process of setting up our group and are excited to embark on this journey!
Stay tuned for more content and updates from the QUIIN lab.
