Ben Panter is the CEO and Founder of Blackford Analysis, a medical imaging company whose Blackford Platform streamlines the procurement, deployment, use and support of a curated marketplace of clinical application and AI products. The company’s products are in use in over a thousand radiology and ophthalmology clinics, departments and imaging centres worldwide.
Originally an astrophysicist, Ben started Blackford in 2010 to apply the results of his research to medical imaging. The company’s original Smart Localizer product accelerated comparison of current and prior images through image registration, and is deployed through several large organisations including Intelerad and Radnet. This experience gave Ben a deep understanding of the need to improve the business model of bringing new products to clinicians, which led to the company’s development of the Blackford Platform.
