Chiminski will lead GE’s new Clinical Diagnostics business following the closing of the acquisition.

The announcement was made at the 15th annual scientific meeting for the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine, in Berlin, Germany.

"I am looking forward to driving our market-leading MR business," said Davis. "GE Healthcare has incredible advances in MR imaging, including 3.0T SAR management, new approaches in cardiac imaging, applications that are improving breast diagnosis, and solutions for producing high-resolution MR images despite patient movement. I look forward to expanding these breakthrough technologies through strong customer partnerships and new breakthrough applications."

Davis began his professional career at GE in GE’s Aircraft Engines business in 1985 in GE’s Edison Engineering Program. He was vice president of Sales and Marketing for the Diagnostic Imaging Business in the America’s from January of 2001 through April of 2007.

Example images for a control participant , a deletion carrier, and a duplication carrier. In the sagittal image of the deletion carrier, the thick corpus callosum, dens and craniocervical abnormality, and cerebellar ectopia are shown. For the duplication carrier, the sagittal image shows the thin corpus callosum and the axial image shows the increased ventricle size and decreased white matter volume.
