Mickael Tanter ERC
Answer: SOON! 

The leading physicist Prof. Tanter and his interdisciplinary team at the Ecole Supérieure de Physique et de Chimie Industrielles de la ville de Paris (ESPCI Paris) are precisely developing a revolutionary high-resolution, high-speed, safe and portable ultrasound technology for neuroimaging, with the support of the European Research Council (ERC).
This technique, based on ultrasound technology, can reveal the functional connectivity of the brain and has already captured full sequences never observed before, such as epilepsy seizure propagation.
Contrary to the fMRI, the functional ultrasound is light, portable, cheap, can be used during surgery, thus offering tremendous clinical applications and new paths for fundamental research.
