Dr. Lindsey's research focuses on early-stage diagnostic imaging in cancer and cardiovascular disease. In order to do this, Dr. Lindsey and colleagues utilize novel contrast agents and develop contrast agent-specific ultrasound imaging systems, devices, and algorithms to image underlying vascular changes prior to the development of a solid tumor or the onset of advanced vascular disease. Designing imaging system hardware and software as well as microbubble contrast agents to work in concert opens new avenues for functional imaging at increasingly earlier stages of disease progression by forming images of mechanisms such as microvascular remodeling, blood flow dynamics, and endothelial cell markers of angiogenesis and inflammation. These images reveal both the underlying nature of disease and its localization weeks to months earlier than what is possible with current imaging technology.
