Participate in an imaging revolution.

iThera Medical offers the next generation in molecular imaging. 
Introducing MSOT - Multispectral Optoacoustic Tomography.

With its unique ability to accurately visualize and quantify tissue molecules, nanoparticles, biomarkers and optical agents, in vivo and in real time, through several centimeters of tissue, MSOT stands at the forefront of the next era in biomedical imaging.

RSOM Small Animal Imaging

iThera Medical's high-resolution RSOM Explorer imaging systems facilitate a wide variety of imaging applications as well as extensive data analysis, and are yet easy to use. For more information: click here or play video to get a first-hand impression of the RSOM experiment procedure for small animal studies.

MSOT Clinical Translation

Based on the real-time multispectral imaging technology proven in iThera Medical’s MSOT inSight / inVision small animal imaging systems, a handheld MSOT imaging system for translational and clinical research use, the MSOT Acuity, is now available (not yet approved as a medical device by FDA or CE).

Hybrid OA / US Technology

iThera Medical recently launched an integrated OPtoacoustic / UltraSound (OPUS) imaging technology. The MSOT inVision 512-echo is the world's first hybrid tomographic OPUS imaging system, providing unparalelled and user-independent image quality, in real time, throughout the entire animal cross-section.

Application Highlight: DCE-MSOT

MSOT has the capability to capture fast processes in vivo with high spatiotemporal resolution. Per-pixel analysis allows fitting of a pharmacokinetic model and calculation of parametric maps. Related applications include perfusion and probe targeting / clearance studies: see poster
