February 17, 2021 — It is with great sorrow and sadness that KA Imaging reported that its co-founder, Sina Ghanbarzadeh, passed away February 15, 2020. He had been battling lymphoma for over a year, but never gave up the fight.

The company noted that 10 years ago at age 22 Ghanbarzadeh arrived in Canada for a Master’s degree at the University of Waterloo, in search of a better future. He was part of the nascent Silicon Thin-film Applied Research (STAR) group at Waterloo with Professor Karim, where early research on the X-ray technologies that would later originate KA Imaging started. Ghanbarzadeh was unique in that with only a research concept, he took the leap (along with others from the STAR group) to develop and pursue an idea to see it become reality.

Alongside Karim S Karim and Amol Karnick, Ghanbarzadeh helped found KA Imaging in 2015. His heart and soul were committed to the development of the Reveal detector, known for its breakthrough technology. Ghanbarzadeh helped transform KA Imaging from a small group of three founders a few years ago to a vibrant company producing one of the most innovative X-ray solutions in the world, one that he was instrumental in realizing. His dedication and commitment to ensuring that KA delivered a product that both, met customer needs and had exacting quality, drove the rest of the team. Beyond Reveal, he influenced all products at KA Imaging — he had even done some of the early work on selenium technology in the STAR group and contributed to the development of inCiTe and BrillianSe. Ghanbarzadeh was unrelentless and only through his hard work, not only do we have products but a company with a strong foundation. While dedicating himself to KA Imaging, he also remained committed to his Ph.D. degree at the University of Waterloo, diligently going through all the milestones. He was about to finish his thesis when he found out about the lymphoma. The cancer, unfortunately, advanced beyond treatment.

Amol Karnick, President and CEO of KA Imaging, and Karim S Karim, CTO of KA Imaging, stated on its website: “Sina was both a close friend and professional colleague and we are personally devastated that he is gone. Sina was extraordinary – he will be missed, but never forgotten. People come and go in our lives, but only a few make an impact. For us, Sina was one of those people who made a lasting impression. There will be those who never had the good fortune to meet Sina, however, they will know who he is, since his contribution will be everlasting.”
