FoU - Christer Grönlund

I am leading a research group developing methods for medical ultrasound imaging with vascular and neuromuscular applications. Our focus is on signal and image processing, using spatiotemporal statistical and deep convolutional neural network methods together with customized imaging sequences using programmable ultrasound systems (Vantage 256, Verasonics, and SonixTouch and DAQ unit, Ultrasonix). Additional competences include electromyography (high density multichannel EMG), near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS), and e-Health/Telemedicine. 

I have a position as a Biomedical engineer at the Region Västerbotten, and also a part-time lecturer position at Department of Radiation Sciences, Umeå University.
