IRVINE, Calif. — Oct. 29, 2019 — (BUSINESS WIRE) — Modulim (modulim.com), a recognized leader in optical imaging solutions for noninvasive tissue assessment, is pleased to announce the appointment of Richard Oberreiter as its new Chief Executive Officer (CEO). Oberreiter succeeds Modulim’s founder, CEO and Chief Technology Officer (CTO), David Cuccia, Ph.D., who will now dedicate his efforts in taking the company’s breakthrough platform technology, known as spatial frequency domain imaging (SFDI), into new areas and applications.
Oberreiter has served as Modulim’s Chief Operations Officer (COO) since 2014, successfully securing the funding necessary to launch the company’s first medical device – the Clarifi® Imaging System – targeted to podiatrists, vascular surgeons, interventionalists and wound care. Oberreiter is a highly successful and well-regarded business leader with more than 20 years of experience in leading medical device companies from development startup to full commercialization.
As the company expands its domestic and international sales of the Clarifi® Imaging System, Cuccia will focus on providing technical leadership, exploring strategic partnership opportunities, and ensuring technology alignment with the company’s business strategy.

Modulim is a pioneer in subsurface optical imaging powered by SFDI, an advanced imaging technique co-invented by founder and CTO David Cuccia, Ph.D. SFDI is a noninvasive tissue oxygen saturation technology that combines structured illumination with multiple wavelengths of light (visible and near-infrared) to allow for deeper and layer-specific assessment of tissue oxygenation and hemoglobin. This unique technology deciphers the reflection, absorbance, and scattering of light in tissue. The new Clarifi® Imaging System, powered by SFDI, is indicated for measuring tissue oxygenation in patients with potential circulatory compromise. It is easy and affordable for clinicians to integrate into their practice, with a Current Procedural Technology (CPT®) Proprietary Analyses (PLA) code (0061U).
