Sirona Medical Inc. is addressing the needs of today’s radiology practices with a novel cloud-based platform that unifies radiology IT applications – worklist, viewer and reporter – onto a single, streamlined Workspace. Sirona’s radiology operating system (RadOS) puts radiologists in the driver’s seat with AI-powered solutions that simplify their workflow and amplify their work product. Based in San Francisco, CA, Sirona Medical is founded on a deep understanding of both the practice and business of radiology, with the goal of enabling radiologists to work as fast as they can think.
Sirona’s management team reflects its multi-disciplinary approach and is composed of leaders from top Silicon Valley software companies, renowned radiologists, and medtech industry veterans.
Cameron Andrews grew up around private practice radiologists and started Sirona to build a new generation of tools physicians need to advance patient care. He studied biology and computer science at Stanford, doing his graduate work through Stanford’s Center for Artificial Intelligence in Medicine & Imaging (AIMI). He spent three years working at Lux Capital, a $4B venture capital firm, where he focused on evaluating companies at the intersection of AI and medicine. Cameron’s vision for Sirona is to ensure radiology’s future is even brighter than its storied past.
Dr. Alan Kaye has broad leadership experience in many facets of radiology and health care. He is a past president of the American College of Radiology after having served on several ACR Commissions, including Economics, Government Relations, Information Technology and the Future Trends Committee.
