Super-resolution ultrasound imaging (SRI) can achieve a resolution beyond the spatial resolution imposed by the conventional diffraction-limited imaging systems. SRI combines many image and signal processing methods to detect and track contrast agents, i.e., microbubbles (MBs), down to the very smallest vessels. The technique can resolve tiny vessels that are impossible to image with conventional ultrasound imaging. Therefore, SRI has a big potential in medical imaging with clinical applications in diagnosing and monitoring vascular diseases, cancer, and diabetes. Motions for heart beating and breathing are inevitable when scanning a live organ for a long period of time and will blur out the image microvasculature. Another challenge is the tracking of high concentration of the MBs inside complex vascular structures. This Ph.D. project aimed to develop an improved processing pipeline that can cope with tissue motion and MB tracking in a complex vascular tree such as the rodent renal vasculature.
