X-ray manufacturer KA Imaging has announced the appointment of Philip Templeton, M.D., FACR, to the newly created position of chief medical officer.
A board-certified radiologist, Templeton brings over 38 years of academic and entrepreneurial medicine experience to KA Imaging. Templeton is most recently known as co-founder and chief medical officer of DocPanel Technologies. A graduate and valedictorian at the University of Rochester School of Medicine, he did his internship in medicine at the Georgetown University Hospital. His radiology residency was at the University of Maryland, where he also served as chief resident. He undertook his Thoracic Radiology Fellowship at the Massachusetts General Hospital. He served as professor and chairman of University of Maryland Radiology for 10 years. Templeton was inducted as a Fellow of the American College of Radiology in 2000.
Among his many career accomplishments, Templeton was a pioneer in the use of several groundbreaking technologies, including CT fluoroscopy, digital X-ray, PACS and teleradiology.
“In addition to being a skilled physician, Philip is a seasoned corporate leader with a strong track record of delivering medical, scientific and strategic guidance to both established and emerging companies in the medical imaging space,” said Amol Karnick, CEO of KA Imaging. “We are delighted to welcome him as CMO. Philip will provide a strong liaison with our customers and ensure that our clinical programs are designed to meet the needs of both clinicians and patients.”
Templeton’s appointment comes on the heels of the recent additions of two other seasoned industry veterans – Shawn Campbell as vice president of operations and Robert Moccia as vice president of sales, USA and Canada – as KA Imaging executes its commercial roll-out of Reveal 35C, the world’s first portable, single exposure, dual-energy X-ray detector that enables bone and soft tissue differentiation without motion artifacts.
