Contrast-Enhanced Ultrasound Evaluation of Hypoxic Ischemic Injury



Subscribe to be notified of changes or updates to this page.

The goal of this HIE (Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy) Study is to develop ultrasound techniques for detecting impaired blood supply to the brain using an investigational contrast agent.  Our hope is to contribute to early diagnosis and improved outcomes.
