A new Engineering Research Center (ERC), the Center for Subsurface Sensing and Imaging Systems (CenSSIS), has been established by the National Science Foundation (NSF) to develop novel technologies that will revolutionize the ability to detect and image objects and conditions underground, underwater, or embedded within living tissue and manmade structures. CenSSIS Director Michael Silevitch said, "This research could result in advances in a new generation of medical imaging for a better and less invasive diagnosing of cancer and heart disease, methods to improve invitro fertilization and sensors to detect underground pollution or hidden highway bridge damage."
