Koeniguer to lead international expansion at ScreenPoint Medical

Following the success of AI breast care system Transpara, ScreenPoint Medical has appointed Mark Koeniguer as its new chief executive officer to lead the next phase of growth and accelerate international expansion. He takes over the helm from founder Professor Nico Karssemeijer who will stay on as chief scientific officer.

Koeniguer has more than 25 years of healthcare industry experience launching innovative products and leading high performance teams in domestic and international markets. He has been instrumental in launching and scaling many industry-first technologies including a computer-aided detection algorithm for the early detection of breast cancer, a mammography analytics platform and a multi-point risk stratified breast screening scorecard.

“I am delighted to be joining ScreenPoint Medical as we see Transpara AI leading the transformation of the earlier detection of breast cancers at a time when the incidence of the disease is increasing exponentially worldwide,” commented Koeniguer.

“I am thrilled to be part of such an impressive team of scientists, researchers and developers focused on early breast cancer detection, prediction and diagnosis. AI has matured since the early 2000s, and is now poised to be a leading clinical decision support tool, assisting radiologists and other clinicians in the global fight to improve cancer survival rates.”

Prior to his entrepreneurial ventures, Koeniguer held various executive leadership positions in finance, operations, sales and marketing for GE Healthcare. He holds a finance degree from the University of Iowa, and an MBA from the University of Wisconsin, Madison.

ScreenPoint Medical co-founder Professor Nico Karssemeijer said: “AI is transforming healthcare, and the possibilities for improving accurate and early detection of disease are huge.

“I’m excited to work with Mark managing the next phase in the growth of ScreenPoint Medical and strengthening our position as leading provider of breast AI solutions.”
