Biomedical Instrumentation and Ultrasound Research
Dr. Kaya's research interests focus on cardiovascular research, ultrasound imaging and therapeutics, biosensors and medical devices. He has worked on projects including Human Patient Simulator, a seizure and epilepsy detector, a medical device to stop excessive menstrual bleeding, ultrasound image-guided release of oxygen to hypoxic tumor to enhance cancer radiotherapy, stem cells and ultrasound to treat vascular injury due to stent placement and non-invasive detection of cardiac arrhythmia to identify which patients are at the highest risk of sudden death. Specific areas of interest include developing innovative techniques and devices for the detection and therapy of cardiovascular diseases such as myocardial ischemia, cardiac arrhythmia, hypertension, hemorrhagic shock and procedures including angioplasty/stent placement and hemodynamic monitoring. In addition, Dr. Kaya has also interest in the development of contrast agents and ultrasound technology for diagnosis and therapy of diseases including cancer.
