Michael Friebe has been involved in diagnostic imaging and image guided therapeutic products and services as well as other related Medical Technology ventures, as founder / innovator / CEO and investor. He previously was the Founder and CEO of Tomovation + Alliance Medical Northern and Central Europe (Alliance bought Tomovation in 2008 - both radiology services companies) and prior to that of NEUROMED AG (acquired by UMS AG in 2001). Dr. Friebe currently is a Board Member of two startup R&D companies - intraoperative SPECT System / Volumetric Ultrasound - a shareholder of several startups, as well as investment partner of a medical technology startup-fund. He was a board member of three publicly traded medical technology companies in the US and currently sits on the board of Eckert&Ziegler BEBIG AG from Senefe, Belgium. He is a regular speaker, listed inventor in more than 50 patent applications, and has written well over 60 articles. Michael Friebe is a member of IEEE, ISMRM, RSNA, and ECR and an affiliated professor with the chair for Computer Aided Medical Procedures (CAMP) at TUM. In December 2014 Michael Friebe has accepted a full professorship of Catheder Technologies at the Otto von Guericke Universität Madgeburg, Germany
