Currently, Ryan Polselli
is in clinical practice as the head of Breast Imaging for Global Imaging Specialists, providing breast imaging services for multiple facilities in multiple states. He is also the founder and CEO of MammoLink®
, a Breast Imaging company revolutionizing the relationship between patients, primary care and OB-gyn physicians, and radiologists, by making exclusive high quality breast imaging services directly available to patients and their physicians.
Dr. Ryan Polselli graduated summa cum laude with a bachelors degree in Physics from Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, Florida. He initially contemplated pursuing a PhD in physics, but ultimately decided to pursue a more personal career in the field Medicine. In order to complete premedical requirements, he obtained a second bachelors degree in biology from the University of South Florida in Tampa, Florida.
Dr. Polselli attended medical school at the University of South Florida’s Morsani College of Medicine in Tampa, Florida. While in medical school he was awarded the superior research presentation award for original research he presented. Dr. Polselli also served on various committees while in medical school and graduated with honors in the top 10% of his class.
Dr. Polselli completed a 1 year internship in internal medicine at Spartanburg Regional Hospital in Spartanburg, South Carolina, followed by a 4 year residency in Diagnostic Radiology at Emory University School of Medicine. During his intern year, Dr. Polselli was recognized for his outstanding and compassionate patient care and received the Excellence in Patient Care Award from Spartanburg Regional Community Hospital. Later, while at Emory University, he was recognized for his efforts in teaching medical students and received the Excellence in Medical Education Award from Emory University School of Medicine.
In 2011, Dr. Polselli completed a one-year fellowship in Breast Imaging as previously noted, also at Emory. During this time, he was mentored by some of the worlds leading experts in Breast Imaging including members of the original Breast Imaging-Reporting and Data System (BI-RADS®) committee, members of the American College of Radiology (ACR) Breast Imaging Clinical Practice Guidelines, members of various editorial boards for several academic breast imaging journals, leaders in cutting edge Breast Imaging research, and other distinguished faculty members.
Ryan Polselli began his early clinical career as the Director of Breast Imaging at Memorial Health University. As the Medical Director, he expanded and improved breast cancer screening and diagnosis options for patients in the community to include interventional breast MRI procedures.While Dr. Polselli was the Medical Director, Memorial Hospital became recognized as a Breast Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology (ACR) and received full accredited by the National Accreditation Program of Breast Centers.
Shortly after beginning clinical practice however, Dr. Ryan Polselli realized many patient needs were not being effectively met in the current healthcare system and started his own company to address those needs. Originally the company marketed medical devices patented by Dr. Polselli to improve the patient breast cancer screening and diagnostic experience.
More recently however, the company has evolved into a more comprehensive breast care company, MammoLink®. This company is now improving the outdated, inconvenient, and inefficient breast cancer screening process in the United States. The company offers technological and radiological expertise to physicians directly involved in patient care in order to significantly simplify and expedite the breast cancer screening process for both patients and physicians.
MammoLink® is currently in the process of developing partnerships with physicain groups and breast cancer organizations and has been contacted to provide his services for groups across the United States. Dr. Polselli hopes that this will make breast cancer screening more available to patients, prevent missed screening visits, and ultimately save lives. He anticipates that in the not to distant future, MammoLink® will be recognized as the most patient centered, efficient, and effective breast cancer screening and diagnosis organization in the United States.
One of the key components of MammoLink’s model is charitable contribution to women in need. A portion of every mammogram is returned back into the community to the charity chosen by the patient having a mammogram. In this way, not only will a patient be taking care of her own health, but the health of other women. This is part of the ‘link’ in MammoLink®
Dr. Polselli regularly writes about issues related to breast cancer screening and diagnosis in his blog, Mammography Matters
, and occasionally includes videos on YouTube.
