Trex Medical has hired Dr. Joel Gray as vice president of business and clinical development. Gray was hired for his imaging expertise as the company prepares for premarket approval of its full-field digital mammography system this year, said William Webb, Trex president and CEO.

Gray will oversee the final stages of development of Lorad’s digital mammography unit. Lorad is Trex’s mammography division.

Gray was a medical physicist in the Mayo Clinic’s radiology department for 20 years. For the past four years, he has been an independent consultant in medical technology management and assessment, medical physics, and imaging sciences for healthcare organizations and the medical imaging industry. He also worked with several overseas organizations to promote quality medical imaging.

Trex Medical, owned by Thermo Electron, is up for sale. Thermo Electron announced earlier this year it would seek a buyer.
