Bob Wang is an executive with vision and proven accomplishment in founding companies that have changed medical imaging and breast care over the past 30 years. When Wang started out, mammography was deemed unsafe for screening purposes due to its high radiation levels. The high-resolution and low-dose rare-earth x-ray radiography technology developed by Wang, which was sold to 3M with a license to Kodak, allowed a 95% dose reduction to mammography and gave rise to modern mammography as we know it today. In 1997, Wang founded U-Systems, Inc. to develop the technology behind the somo•v® system. His hard work and passion continue to a make a difference for women everywhere.
