Santa Clara Valley Chapter Monthly Meeting

SCV EMBS Meetings are usually scheduled for the third Wednesday of each month, except July, August, and December. The formal presentation is 7:30 - 8:30 pm. Afterwards, there is an opportunity to network.

The usual meeting location is in Room M114 of the Medical School on Stanford Campus). M114 is in the corner closest to the Clark Bioscience Building.

Meet the Speaker
An optional, no-host dinner with the speaker precedes each meeting, and you are invited. We gather in the Stanford Hospital cafeteria at 6:15 pm. No reservation is needed.

Upcoming EMBS Meeting

Room M-114, Stanford University Medical School

Title: Design of an Ultrasound-On-Chip Platform for the Butterfly iQ
Speaker: Tyler Ralston
Co-founder, Butterfly Network, Inc.

This presentation provides an overview of a whole-body imaging medical ultrasound device utilizing a single probe. This is a first-of-kind, FDA-approved for 13 indications device, that plugs directly into an iPhone. It is priced at a 50-fold lower price tag than other existing solutions. The core innovation of the device involves a highly-integrated semiconductor chip, which enables the compact form factor, the high bandwidth for multi-modal versatility, and the low power consumption. Marking a technologically new epoch from the 200-year-old stethoscope, this point-of-care ultrasound imaging device provides a live window into the human body with wide applications useful throughout a lifetime.

Tyler S. Ralston is an author and/or co-author of 40+ patents, 50+ papers with 1900+ citations, 3 book contributions with 40+ presentations at international conferences, and 20+ invited presentations. Much of this work has been covered by the media/press in numerous articles, e.g., Wired, Forbes, BBC, CNN, and more. Tyler has developed many novel imaging systems for industry and research, including 4 medical products while at Battelle, a multi-modal real-time 3D microscope (ISAM) during his Ph.D., radar and optical systems at MIT Lincoln Laboratory, and high-energy imaging systems at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. Tyler is a co-founder of Butterfly Network, Inc and a contributor across 4Catalyzer companies, leading the biomedical imaging efforts to enable fully capable system architectures that meet the business and market needs for company viability. As a technical fellow, he contributes to key technical demonstrations and commercialization plans, helping to secure external investments in Butterfly Network and Hyperfine Research and providing an operational path for scaling production.
