Artificial intelligence (AI) software developer Annalise.ai has named Lakshmi Gudapakkam as CEO and Dr. Rick Abramson as chief medical officer.
Gudapakkam comes to Annalise.ai with more than 20 years of leadership experience at companies such as GE Healthcare and Philips. In the past four years, he has served as vice president and general manager for the east region at Quest Diagnostics.
A board-certified radiologist, Abramson was previously corporate vice president for the radiology service line at HCA Healthcare. Both executives will be based in the U.S. and are expected to drive the company's expansion into the U.S., according to the firm.
In March, Annalise.ai received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance for its Enterprise CXR software, which is designed for use in triage and notification of pneumothorax and tension pneumothorax on chest x-rays.
