San Jose, CA, February 16, 2011 —With the retirement of NDS Surgical Imaging’s veteran CTO, Ron Hansen, the Company has appointed Dr. Peter M. Steven to the role of Chief Technology Officer. Dr. Steven was instrumental in the design and development of the first diagnostic LCD displays for radiology. He also played a leading role in the development of the first auto-calibrating medical flat panel display, and has published numerous papers on the subject. Dr. Steven will vacate the role of VP & GM, Radiology Business Unit.
NDSsi also announced that Daniel Webster has joined the Company as Vice President and General Manager, Radiology Business Unit, focused on the Dome® product portfolio. Webster has an extensive 30-year background in executive management and medical imaging. He comes to this assignment after leading four healthcare related businesses, including a gold standard PACS company, and a US-based designer/manufacturer of patient monitors supplying both major medical device manufacturers and health care providers. He has also led a business focused on global service for x-ray, digital radiography, CT, MRI and ultrasound imaging devices.
In assuming control of the Dome by NDSsi radiology product line, Webster said, “I value joining NDSsi since it is a US-based company focused solely on medical imaging. This focus, combined with unmatched quality and the longest trouble-free warranty in the industry, sets the Dome brand apart as the clear leader in value.”
