International Photoacoustic Standardisation Consortium
The overall goal of IPASC is to reach consensus on photoacoustic imaging (PAI) standardization to improve the quality of preclinical studies and to accelerate efforts in clinical translation. Furthermore, by establishing standards IPASC hopes to facilitate open access, use, and exchange of data between different groups.
IPASC is currently represented globally in over 15 countries with more than 90 academic and industrial members (see our Member List for a full overview). If you also want to get involved and contribute to the consortium, please follow the 'Get Involved' instructions.
