Ultrasound in medicine - PhD at IPPT PAN. Ultrasounds are used in all areas of medicine – in vascular studies, cardiac imaging, musculoskeletal system, endocrinology, cancer, obstetrics and gynecology. There are about 20 million examinations performed in Poland every year. Such popular technique requires specialist know-how of engineers and physicists. Our Institute is one of the world-leading centers developing methods and techniques of ultrasound for medicine and biology. We are also the only center in Poland of such broad spectrum of research in ultrasound. If you feel more of a theorist, you will find support from our outstanding scientists, and if you are more of an experimentalist and creator, you will find state-of-the-art laboratories to develop your diagnostic research. Whichever path you choose, graduating with a PhD from IPPT PAN opens up a world of possibilities for your future career.
