Research activities:

image Our projects, based on ultrafast ultrasound, a revolutionary noninvasive imaging tool, are dealing with its methodological developments in neurology and in particular in cerebrovascular diseases. They are intended to assess biomechanical properties of the cerebral vessels in various pathologies (aneurysm, vasculitis, atheromatosis), microcirculation (functional imaging), cerebrovascular blood flow and perfusion (modification, regulation) in ischemia (stroke, vasospasm) and in intracranial hyper- or hypotension.
