Research Summary: Dr. Abramowicz's research largely focuses on the bioeffects and safety of ultrasound, specifically in obstetrics. Consequently, he serves with several international associations responsible for determining safety guidelines for nonionizing radiation. Together with Dr. Barua (Rush University), Dr. Abramowicz also uses ultrasound to characterize early ovarian cancer in a unique ovarian cancer model; the egg-laying chicken, which is the only animal that develops spontaneous ovarian cancer similar in histology, metastatic spread and serum antigens to human cancer. . He and Dr. Barua have also described the use of ultrasound contrast agents, targeted to various antigens or factors expressed by the tumor.
