BOSTON, January 26, 2023 – Elucid, Inc., a leading medical technology company providing physicians with AI-powered imaging analysis software to characterize cardiovascular disease, today announced the addition of Scott Burger as chief commercial officer. His appointment comes as Elucid expands the commercial footprint of its PlaqueIQ technology, the only FDA-cleared plaque analysis software to identify and match CT images to patient tissue samples, simulating what a pathologist would see under a microscope.
“We welcome Scott to our senior leadership team at this important time of growth for the company. His vast range of leadership experiences in the medical device and services space is exactly what we are looking for to take us to the next level as we increase our commercial footprint,” said Blake Richards, chief executive officer, Elucid. “Scott’s knowledge and track record of success will be vital for Elucid as we launch several next generation plaque and FFRCT products in the coming months.”
Scott brings more than 15 years of leadership experience and will lead sales, marketing, market access and customer success. He joins Elucid from CorVista Health, a non-invasive cardiac diagnostics company that combines advanced disciplines of mathematics, physics and machine-learning to reshape existing care pathways. Prior to his tenure at CorVista, Scott was commercial vice president at HeartFlow, and previously held leadership roles at Johnson & Johnson, superDimension, Bard and ConvaTec.
