Aoife Ivory

Aoife graduated from TCD in 2013 with B.A. in Physics with Astrophysics with a final year research project entitled 'High Resolution X-ray Imaging of Solar Flares'. With a background in imaging physics, she then completed my M.Sc. Physical Sciences in Medicine specializing in Diagnostic Imaging in 2014, also in TCD, and was awarded the UK and Ireland Institute of Physics Medical Physics Group Postgraduate Dissertation Prize 2015 for my research project 'Continuous Objective Measurement of Clinical Images in Digital Mammography'. She began her PhD studies in the Imaging Physics Group in 2014 with the support of an Irish Research Council Government of Ireland Postgraduate Scholarship. Her project is entitled 'Quantification of absolute perfusion indices in liver cancer via ultrasound for diagnosis and therapy monitoring' and focuses on the use of subharmonic and three dimensional imaging in Dynamic Contrast Enhanced Ultrasound imaging of the liver using microbubble contrast agents. We hope to combine these techniques to develop a method of tracking changes in the blood flow supplying cancer tumours.
