- Greetings from Our CEO, Douglas Boyd -

boydDouglas P. Boyd, PhD., Chief Executive Officer

Mr. Boyd is an internationally recognized physicist who has pioneered in the fields of Medical Imaging and Airport Security Imaging. While at Stanford University he conceived the first fan-beam, rotary Computed Tomography scanners using Xenon detector arrays which became the standard in the industry for 20 years. The fan beam CT patents were licensed to General Electric and sub-licensed worldwide. While Professor of Radiology (Physics) at the University of California, San Francisco, he developed the first scanning electron beam CT scanner (EBCT) and later founded Imatron Inc which commercialized EBCT and was the leader in cardiac CT imaging for 20 years until sold to General Electric in 2001. While at Imatron he worked on airport explosives detection and later founded Invision which was for many years the only certified Explosives Detection System (EDSS) in airports for many years for which Dr. Boyd was awarded the Conway Safe Skies Award in 1993. Invision was sold to General Electric,, and later Morpho/Safran and has recently shipped the 2000th unit . In 2008 he founded TSS to help introduce the next level of explosives detection technology. During these years, Dr. Boyd served on the boards of a number of small innovative high-tech companies, published more than100 technical papers and was awarded 26 US patents.
