SonoVol Awarded Phase 1 National Institutes of Health SBIR Grant

PrintThis project, “A Noninvasive Method for Tissue Stiffness Quantification In Small Animals With Shear Wave Elastography,” is a new and exciting direction for the company’s small animal imaging research platform. This non-dilutive infusion of $225,000 from the NIDDK was made possible by the expertise of the newest member of the SonoVol team and PI of the grant, Dr. Tomek Czernuszewicz.  Through this pilot study, our objective is to demonstrate feasibility of an automated tissue stiffness measurement device, with applicability across many different disease models. Congratulations to Dr. Czernuszewicz on receiving this SBIR grant.
