Dr. Khachaturian is the CTO of ARC Devices, Ltd since Oct of 2016 where he leads the research and development of multiple connected non-contact and light-touch vital sign measurement technologies.  These technologies aimed at improving the safety, reducing the cost, and increasing the accessibility of health monitoring in the hospital and at home. Dr. Khachaturian was previously the VP of R&D at ABT Molecular Imaging where he lead the development of a small compact automated radiopharmaceutical production system for F-18 and C-11 based radio-pharmaceuticals.  He holds the position of Science and Technology Advisor the CEO at ABT to support R&D projects and field issues. Prior to ABT, Dr. Khachaturian was the PET/MR Lead System Designer II at GE Healthcare, where he lead of the design and manufacture of the Signa® PET/MRI system and lead the design of the Discovery MR750w Resonance Module. Dr. Khachaturian received his PhD in Nuclear Science and Engineering from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) with a focus on medical imaging. He received his Bachelors of Science in Nuclear Engineering and Engineering Physics with a focus on radiation detection and measurement from the University of Michigan.
