Terason, a division of Teratech Corporation began in 1994, drawing upon technology developed at MIT’s Lincoln Laboratory. Dr. Alice Chiang, CEO and Chairman of the Board, 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, she formed the Terason division. With initial key patents protecting the integrated circuit technology she developed at MIT, Dr. Chiang dedicated Terason to the development of a micro-miniaturized commercial ultrasound system.
Today, we continue to revolutionize ultrasound with developments in high-performance portable systems. The new proprietary uSmart products provide exceptional imaging capability and the advanced features and functionality users have come to expect from Terason. These complete ultrasound solutions optimize workflow, enhance clinical efficacy, and increase productivity for everyday clinical needs. For more information, visit www.terason.com.
