Terason, a division of Teratech Corporation began in 1994, drawing upon technology perfected at MIT’s Lincoln Laboratory. Dr. Alice Chiang founded the company to apply developments in the fields of radar, sonar and telecommunications technologies to the demanding requirements of battlefield ultrasound. Recognizing that decades of breakthrough research for the Department of Defense could be applied to the challenges of mainstream ultrasound imaging, Dr. Chiang formed the Terason division. With initial key patents protecting the integrated circuit technology she developed at MIT, Dr. Chiang dedicated the Terason division to the development of a micro-miniaturized commercial ultrasound system.
Having delivered on the promise of high performance micro-miniaturization, Terason has shipped thousands of ultrasound systems to clinicians, hospitals, outpatient centers and OEM partners since 2000. Terason is the market leader in ultrasound-guided venous intervention. We are also successful in various other markets including cardiology, musculoskeletal (MSK), vascular surgery, interventional radiology, endocrinology and breast surgery.
