Professor Cloutier works on research issues related to the development of new ultrasonic imaging technologies that make it possible to improve diagnosis and therapeutic follow-up. With his team, he developed a new approach for analysis of ultrasonic signals that allows a cell signature of breast cancer tumours. Their recent works have shown that this approach could be useful in reducing the number of biopsies performed to confirm cancer diagnosis. With this approach it may be possible to reduce by 25% the number of unnecessary biopsies performed to confirm the absence of cancer.
Why Choosing Breast Cancer?
The works my team and I have worked on which were recently published in the prestigious scientific journal Radiology.
