Job Description:

Technical Product Specialist - Quantitative Diagnostic Software Group (QUAD)Our Quantitative Diagnostic Software Group (QUAD) seeks to develop software to allow computers to process and analyze three-dimensional images of the heart in much the same way as an experienced human operator. The program applies artificial intelligence techniques to the measurement of parameters critical to understanding the state and behavior of the human heart. This automated approach allows information to be obtained very quickly that is quantitatively accurate and does not suffer from intra-observer or inter-observer variability.The software and algorithms developed by QUAD are widely considered to represent the gold standard in nuclear cardiology. They can perform a totally automated, push-button sequence of actions relating to imaging processing and analysis.Through QUAD, algorithms have been developed to:

  • Take raw digital data output by the gamma camera, identify where the heart is, reconstruct it into tomographic images and reorient those images to make them perpendicular to the heart's -axis-all without operator interaction.
  • Take tomographic images of the heart, evaluate the signals from several hundred portions of the myocardium, compare the strength of the signals with those expected in a normal heart and generate an exact quantitative measurement of the location, extent and severity of perfusion abnormalities of the heart. This gives the physician objective information to help select or rule out more invasive treatment.
  • Analyze the dynamic functioning of the heart (i.e., the way it contracts and thickens during its cycle). A dynamic measurement of the heart cavity volume is performed from electrocardiographically gated three-dimensional nuclear cardiology images by automatically identifying the endocardial and epicardial surfaces and following their motion throughout the cardiac cycle.The software and algorithms developed by QUAD are licensed and distributed by virtually every nuclear medicine camera manufacturer.We are seeking a Technical Product Specialist to support -the global distribution of Quantitative Diagnostic Software Group (QUAD) software products and drives ongoing business through end-user training and support for all software products developed by QUAD, an FDA-registered and ISO-certified medical device manufacturer. Supports the direct distribution of QUAD software in other areas such as assistance with regulatory documentation and marketing-related projects. Travel may be required (e.g. on-site customer training, meetings, or participation in promotional and educational activities at conference exhibitis). Educational Requirements:
    • BS in Nuclear Medicine, Information Technology, or related field required Licenses: Experience: -
      • Two (2) years of clinical imaging experience in a hospital/healthcare environment, experience and functional competency with image processing, 3D graphics and/or nuclear cardiology quantification software (e.g. Cedars-Sinai's QGS, QPS, AutoQUANT) is required.
      • Two (2) - years of IT support help desk experience is preferred.
      • Two (2) years of sales experience is strongly preferred .
