Wally Block

Wally Block is a Professor of Biomedical Engineering, Medical Physics, and Radiology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where he oversees a very active research program. His research career has focused on MRI applications related to cancer detection and therapy. Dr. Block worked for 5 years with GE Medical Systems developing a new MRI pulse programming language, EPIC, which is still in use today. This experience forms the basis for TherVoyant’s expertise in real-time control and feedback of MRI scanners. His subsequent research projects have provided insight into the disease categories and market positions which are best addressed by real-time MRI. Dr. Block’s role in TherVoyant is to bridge the gap between the technical aspects of the MRI scanner and the diseases which medical practitioners are trying to cure.
