Acertara Acoustic Laboratories, an independent acoustic measurement, testing, and calibration facility based in Longmont, Colo, has announced that CEO G. Wayne Moore was named as the new chair for the Ultrasound Technical Committee of the Medical Imaging Technology Alliance (MITA), the medical device division of the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA).

MITA develops standards for medical imaging and radiation therapy equipment. Its membership is comprised of original equipment manufacturers that make up 90% of the market. MITA’s standards are voluntary guidelines that establish commonly accepted methods of design, production, testing, and communication for imaging and cancer treatment products. The group also works closely with other groups, such as AdvaMed, and directly with various regulatory entities, such as the United States Food and Drug Administration, on issues related to technology assessment policies.

“The work that MITA’s member companies perform through the various technical committees is extremely important to both the advancement of the science of medical imaging, as well as the safety of the devices, and I am honored to serve in the role of chair of the Ultrasound Technical Committee,” said G. Wayne Moore in the Acertara announcement.
