iThera Medical is looking for 15 sonographers in the greater Boston area to be involved in a usability study for an optoacoustic medical imaging system.

Space is limited!

About Optoacoustic imaging:

  • The MSOT Acuity Echo by iThera uses short laser pulses to excite light-absorbing tissue molecules which then emit ultrasound signals.
  • These ultrasound signals are collected by an ultrasound detector and processed to create a map of optical absorbance at a given wavelength.
  • By changing the laser wavelength, a spectroscopic analysis of the tissue composition can be performed, providing information about progression of various diseases.

  • The unique capability of this imaging technique is to combine optical contrast with the depth and resolution of ultrasound imaging.

Why participate?

Who can participate?

When and where will the study be?

  • The study site is in North Reading, MA, about 20 minutes away from downtown Boston.
  • The study will begin mid-June 2023 and will last about three weeks.
  • Each participant will be scheduled to be on-site for one day including 2 hours of training in the morning and 2 hours of study participation in the afternoon with a long break during lunch.

The schedule is subject to change.

Travel costs will be reimbursed. Additional details will be provided after participants have been screened.

INFO: Not everyone who fills out this form will be able to participate in the study as the number of spots is limited and participants may undergo additional screening. Only those who participate to the end of their scheduled study day will be reimbursed. However, if you are the first to refer a colleague who participates in the study, you will be reimbursed whether you are able to participate or not.
