Drs. László Tabár, Michael Vendrell, and Tom Stavros are gifted radiologists on a journey to reduce breast cancer. Dr. Vendrell was part of the original development of computer-aided detection with MRI and breast imaging. In 2012, he was the catalyst for founding the company as he knew the best and brightest of breast imaging. This included recruiting Dr. Stavros, widely known as the expert in breast ultrasound and Dr. Tabár, considered the father of mammography.
Dr. Vendrell knew that both of these radiologists had always been strong advocates for improving care and practice in breast imaging. They had similar views on their profession. They agreed there were inherent problems in the breast imaging process that plagued them as clinicians, that affected their patients in terms of safety, and made it difficult to run a practice. They firmly believed that technology and hiring the right team would address many of these issues and are pleased with the outcome.
All their work and expertise came together to form Ikonopedia and the team we have today. Drs. Tabár, Vendrell, and Stavros continue to be involved, but we also actively engage with our customers to add to our functionality and tracking. Together, we are delivering more effective breast health for patients by enabling radiologists with the best solution to identify and track all types of potential cancer risk.
