Ruedi G. Laupper, chairman emeritus, founder, and chief technology officer Swissray International Inc.

"The challenge of designing the perfect radiography system has always been my first love and I look forward to having more time to focus on new innovations."That's how Ruedi Laupper announced his decision last November to step down as CEO of Swissray International Inc. (Elizabeth, NJ) and assume his new role as chairman emeritus and chief technology officer.
In his many years of work with radiography systems, Laupper noted the inefficiency of conventional equipment.He speculated that the market-now in the age of information technology-would soon demand an all-digital system that would provide a better image; enable quick clinical review and fast transmission, storage, and retrieval of image documents; decrease space requirements; reduce the hazards associated with chemically dependent film-based systems; and-most important to Laupper-enable radiology departments to increase their patient throughput.
