ADDISON, TEXAS (June 13, 2014) — Solis Mammography, the nation’s largest independent provider of screening and diagnostic mammograms, is pleased to announce that Stephen L. Rose, M.D. has joined the company as its chief medical officer. Dr. Rose will assume responsibility for clinical quality, clinical research and leadership of the Solis Mammography's breast radiologists. In addition, Dr. Rose will be a spokesperson for the company regarding clinical quality and will play a key role in the strategic growth of the company.

Dr. Rose is a national leader in the science of mammography and is recognized for his work in digital breast tomosynthesis, a new form of 3D mammography. He recently participated in a multi-center national clinical trial investigating tomosynthesis and has written several papers on the subject. He will head a team of breast imaging specialists for Solis, which has the largest team of specialized breast radiologists in the country.

Currently, less than 5 percent of all radiologists dedicate their practice to breast imaging and research shows a marked difference in the quality of mammography interpretations between general radiologists and those with a breast imaging specialization

Dr. Rose is a graduate of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore, Maryland. His residency in Diagnostic Radiology was completed at the University of Texas at Houston, including training at M.D. Anderson, Texas Children’s, Hermann, and St. Joseph’s hospitals of Houston. In 2000, he received the Susan G. Komen & BMW Ultimate Drive Hero award and was featured in the Smithsonian Institute for his leadership in the science of mammography. Dr. Rose also received Physician of the Year from Memorial Hermann Southwest Hospital in 2007. Dr. Rose has been in the private practice of breast imaging in Houston, Texas since 1986.
