ScreenPoint Medical, the company that developed the world leading Transpara AI breast care system, announces the launch of its new Medical Advisory Board (MAB) comprised of distinguished leaders in breast radiology from both sides of the Atlantic.

The MAB will help the company better understand the external medical and imaging environment, in particular the junction between imaging, breast AI, and cancer detection.  Additionally, we look forward to guidance on both existing products, those under development and future unmet market needs. Transpara Breast AI, which is now in daily use across the United States and in more than 30 other countries worldwide, has received endorsement from more peer reviewed scientific papers than any other breast AI product.

The new MAB brings together a unique team of renowned experts in the field who will have a continuing influence on the development of Transpara internationally.

“We are thrilled that such respected professionals have decided to join our Medical Advisory Board, “said Mark Koeniguer, CEO of ScreenPoint Medical. “Together, they bring an unparalleled wealth of experience to help guide us to the next level of development, and to ensure we can bring high impact solutions to clinicians while benefiting patients in our joint fight against breast cancer.”
