Dr Elaine Kwong Awarded Health and Medical Research Fund

Dr Elaine Kwong, Assistant Professor of CBS, has been funded by the Health and Medical Research Fund (HMRF) on the project “The temporal profiles of swallowing events in healthy adults: a pilot study using ultrasound imaging”. The project is an interdisciplinary collaboration with Prof. Yong-Ping Zheng of the Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME). It aims to obtain some normative ultrasonographic data from healthy individuals and lay the groundwork for swallowing examination in individuals with swallowing disorders. It is hoped that ultrasound can be applied clinically as an alternative imaging tool for swallowing assessments in the future.
