Terry Ross has stepped down as president of Imatron, although he will remain a member of the board, focusing on strategic business development. His vacated position will not be filled, nor will his office, which Imatron has already turned into a library.

The position of president was created in 1998 as an enticement for Ross to lead the company. The agreement then was for Ross to stay just two years, long enough to redirect Imatron toward more profitable activities. He remained longer than initially planned. But for the last six weeks Ross has been on vacation. His retirement was not announced until Ross was satisfied that the company was functioning well without him.

CEO S. Lewis Meyer has taken over the helm.
