ITL founder Ryon dies

Dr. David Ryon, founder of RIS and PACS developer Image Technology Laboratories (ITL), passed away at the age of 59 on Tuesday due to cardiac failure while undergoing treatment for an unrelated illness, according to the Kingston, NY-based firm.

In addition to being the founder and principal stockholder of ITL, Ryon was also a co-developer of ITL's WarpSpeed RIS/PACS. He was appointed to the company's board of directors and as the firm's president and CEO in December 1997.

He earned his doctor of medicine degree cum laude from Albany Medical College in 1975, and served residencies in surgery and radiology at Albany Center Hospital in Albany, NY. Prior to becoming a physician, he earned a bachelor's degree in physics and a master's in engineering at the University of Rochester in Rochester, NY.

ITL said that its board of directors has approved the promotion of Barry Muradian to president and CEO to replace Ryon. Muradian was formerly vice president and chief operating officer.
