MRI pioneer Leon Kaufman, Ph.D., has taken the helm of AccuImage Diagnostics. Kaufman joined the company as CEO in mid-February, leaving Toshiba amid that company's reorganization (SCAN 1/31/01). Kaufman in 1975 established one of the world's first MRI development programs at the University of California, San Francisco, a program successively supported by Pfizer, Diasonics, and Toshiba America, as well as the National Institutes of Health. After leaving UCSF in 1994, Kaufman spent six years as Toshiba's chief scientist and vice president of engineering. In his new position at AccuImage, Kaufman will focus on the development and marketing of 3-D visualization and networking technology.
