Renowned Counsel

Our Clinical Advisory board is comprised of distinguished members of the medical community, recognized by their peers on both national and global levels. With years of experience in imaging research and practice dedicated to the advancement of better methods for breast cancer detection, each member has provided the Delphinus team invaluable guidance and expertise in our goal to transform breast imaging.

  • Ellen Mendelson, M.D., FACR
    Professor of Radiology (Breast Imaging), Feinberg School of Medicine, Northwestern University, Chicago

    Dr. Ellen Mendelson is Lee F. Rogers Professor of Radiology in Medical Education and Professor of Radiology at the Feinberg School of Medicine, Northwestern University in Chicago, Section Chief of Breast and Women’s Imaging, and Director of the Fellowship in Breast and Women’s Imaging at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago. Her medical training, radiology residency, and fellowship were all accomplished at Northwestern.

    Dr. Mendelson is active in the American College of Radiology where she is a member of the Breast Commission and chairs the Breast Economics Committee. She also chaired the ACR committee that wrote the first edition of BI-RADS [Breast Imaging Reporting and Data Systems®] for Ultrasound, currently in wide use, as well as the committee that prepared the second edition for 2013 publication. Her major research interests are in new technologies for diagnosis particularly involving automated ultrasound and MRI, applications of automated ultrasound and workflow issues, and imaging guided breast interventional procedures. Dr. Mendelson was co-investigator of the multicenter ACRIN 6666 trial of screening with ultrasound and mammography versus mammography alone in women with elevated risk of breast cancer.

    Dr. Mendelson is widely published and an invited speaker nationally and internationally on breast imaging and imaging-guided interventional procedures. She is co-author with Prof. Helmut Madjar of a textbook, The Practice of Breast Ultrasound (Theime, 2008). Dr. Mendelson is also on the faculty of The International Breast Ultrasound School.

  • Elizabeth Morris, M.D., FACR, FSBI
    Chief of the Breast Imaging Service, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center

    Dr. Morris is Chief of the Breast Imaging Service at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) and Professor of Radiology at Weill Cornell Medical College and the Larry Norton Endowed Chair.  She is a fellow of the American College of Radiology (ACR), Society of Breast Imaging (SBI) and International Society of MR in Medicine (ISMRM).  She currently serves as President of the SBI.

    Dr. Morris graduated summa cum laude from the University of California Davis and received her medical degree from the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF).  She completed her residency at Cornell University Medical College and breast imaging fellowship at MSKCC.

    Her research focus is on how best to use newer techniques such as MRI for early breast cancer detection and to improve the workup of breast lesions.  In collaboration with her colleagues, she has written over 130 papers, chapters, and books about breast disease with an emphasis on the use of MRI.  She has lectured widely both nationally and internationally at over 300 conferences.  Currently, she chairs the MR section of the ACR BI-RADS® Lexicon.  She has authored a book “Breast MRI: Diagnosis & Intervention.  Her recent research efforts have involved looking at imaging biomarkers to assess risk and treatment response.

  • Matthew O’Donnell, Ph.D.
    Professor of Bioengineering, University of Washington

    Dr. O’Donnell is Professor of Bioengineering at the University of Washington and served as the Frank and Julie Jungers Dean of Engineering for six years. Recent research has explored new imaging modalities, including elasticity imaging, in vivo microscopy, optoacoustic arrays, photoacoustic contrast agents and therapy, thermal strain imaging, and catheter-based devices. In his early career, he studied MRI and ultrasound imaging systems at General Electric Corporate Research and Development Center. While at University of Michigan, he held appointments in Electrical Engineering & Computer Science and Biomedical Engineering. He was named the Jerry W. and Carol L. Levin Professor of Engineering and served as Chair of the Biomedical Engineering Department.

    Undergraduate, graduate, and post-doctoral training was at Notre Dame and Washington University in St. Louis. Dr. O’Donnell has been honored with numerous awards, including the Distinguished Alumni Award from the University of Notre Dame. He is a fellow of the IEEE and AIMBE and a member of the Washington State Academy of Sciences and the National Academy of Engineering.

  • Marilyn Roubidoux, M.D., FACR, FSBI
    Professor of Radiology, University of Michigan School of Medicine

    Dr. Roubidoux is Professor of Radiology at the University of Michigan School of Medicine, and a board certified radiologist and is MQSA qualified. She is a Fellow of the American College of Radiology, as well as a Fellow of the Society of Breast Imaging. Her primary area of research is in breast imaging and new technologies for breast cancer detection.

    She has been Co-Investigator on several research studies supported by grants from the Department of Defense and National Institutes of Health. The areas of focus include computer-aided detection, breast ultrasound and breast tomosynthesis. At the University of Michigan, she has designed clinical trials and participated collaboratively in clinical studies examining breast ultrasound, CAD, digital mammography, percutaneous ablation, breast density assessment, tomosynthesis, and combined breast ultrasound-tomosynthesis systems.

    Dr. Roubidoux earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Microbiology from Brigham Young University, and graduated from the University of Utah School of Medicine. She completed Radiology Residency and fellowship at Duke University Medical Center. She is a Fellow in the Society of Breast Imaging. Dr. Roubidoux has authored 103 peer-reviewed scientific publications, over 250 scientific presentations and is an NIH-funded investigator in Breast Imaging Radiology research.
