Abram Voorhees is Senior Director of Academic Accounts.
Strategic partnerships are a cornerstone of any company's long term sustainable success. Abram brings 20 years of experience in developing medical imaging products, with extensive work in R&D collaborations, business management, sales, and product development. He has a passion for building academic partnerships using both innovative technologies and disruptive business models to expand patient access to quality healthcare.
Abram joined United Imaging in 2018 to lead Magnetic Resonance as part of the widely-recognized U.S. market entrance in 2018. He proceeded to launch six 510(k)-cleared MRI systems, including MRIs with industry-leading homogeneity, the world's first 75-cm ultra-wide bore 3T, and a next-generation PET/MR with "uEXPLORER® Inside" digital TOF PET detectors. As part of the U.S. launch, Abram introduced the disruptive All-in Configurations™ approach and Software Upgrades for Life™ for MR to bring equal access to quality imaging and remove conventional market barriers for new and impactful MR technologies. In 2021, Abram assumed leadership of the Computed Tomography business and launched the uCT ATLAS 160-slice CT. In these roles, Abram led MR sales growth by 2x year-over-year on average during the last three years and 5x revenue growth in CT from 2022 to 2023.
Prior to United Imaging, Abram's experience in magnetic resonance, molecular imaging, and computed tomography at Siemens Healthineers spanned roles in research and development, product management, business development, and sales. As a staff scientist, he led scientific collaborations between industry and academia at university hospitals and research institutions for pediatric MR applications, application development, and image reconstruction. In 2009, he launched the first simultaneous PET/MR and led the commercial rollout of this new modality into North and South America. His commercial experience managing a territory for computed tomography shaped his appreciation for customer and patient needs in acute care and trauma, large IDN health systems, and independent private practices.
Abram holds Ph.D., M.S., and Bachelor of Science degrees in Mechanical Engineering from Rutgers University. For his doctoral dissertation he led a multidisciplinary effort with Vascular Surgery at Robert Wood Johnson Hospital and Mechanical and Biomedical Engineering at Rutgers, using fluid mechanics to study cardiovascular disease. He entered radiology as a post-doctoral fellow at the NYU School of Medicine Center for Biomedical Imaging, applying mechanics, motion tracking, and MR application development to the study of pulmonary function and cardiovascular disease.
In his spare time, Abram enjoys surfing, swimming, skiing, and spending time outside with his wife, son, and two daughters.
