This research conducted in the laboratory of Dr. Sam Gambhir at Stanford University demonstrated significant improvement in image quality using both phantoms and tissue samples.

These improvements have already been incorporated into the Nexus 128. Endra is always seeking ways to improve its products and technology by working with research partners, customers, and leaders in photoacoustic imaging technologies and applications. Please contact us to learn more.
