Bringing a lifetime of commercial radiology management to internationally renown academic institution
Life Science Partner announced today the recruitment of Swapan Sen to become Executive Director, eRadiology at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation in Cleveland, Ohio. Sen was previously the President and COO of Raytel Imaging Holdings, a division of SHL-Telemedicine Ltd., which provides radiology services and new facilities that provide for the diagnosis of cardiovascular disease.
“Sen has the broad financial and operational management of radiology centers, with a strong background in the commercial arena of national operations, “noted Thomas H. Callaway, MD, President and Founder of Life Science Partner. “He was attracted to joining the Cleveland Clinic because their cutting-edge radiology technologies and international brand recognition gives them a leg-up in the emerging market for teleradiology.”
The eRadiology Department at Cleveland Clinic provides services and equipment to allow geographically dispersed radiologists access to experienced specialists in the development of outpatient imaging centers (including site selection and design, equipment acquisition, employee recruitment and training) and teleradiological access to the academic, subspecialty trained radiologists of the Cleveland Clinic.
At Raytel Imaging, Sen led a company that owns and operates stand-alone, multi-modality diagnostic imaging centers across the country. These centers provide a wide variety of imaging services, which include MRI and MRA, CT, Ultrasound, Mammography, Nuclear Imaging, DEXA Scanning and X-Ray. Since its acquisition in April 2002 by SHL-Telemedicine, Sen oversaw its expansion into cardiac monitoring (e.g., EKG telemonitoring) and cardiac imaging, including nuclear cardiac business.
Early in his career, Sen was a leader in the introduction of Nuclear Magnetic Imaging (MRI) at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. He received his B.S. from Calcutta University, in Calcutta, India and his MS in Healthcare Administration at St. Joseph’s University in Philadelphia.
