After graduating from ADU in 2001, Matthew Hayes served first as a technologist, then as a chief technologist and finally as a director of imaging for various diagnostic companies around Florida. He later went on to form Innovative Imaging — a radiology consulting firm specializing in high field MRI, multi-slice CT, and advanced visualization. He has spoken throughout the U.S. as well as Europe on various topics, ranging from clinical to research radiology and their applicability to shape medicine. In 2014, he co-founded Global Diagnostic Imaging Solutions — a research firm dedicated to helping to solve current issues in medicine, such as Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, and prostate cancer. In 2015, Hayes began building what is now ImagingU, the first MRI educational program that illustrates nuclear physics and best practices taught through animations rather than textbooks. He also co-developed Global LMS, a learning management system that will enable people throughout the world to access education and continuing education. He resides in Cary, North Carolina, where he holds the position of MRI and Syngo Via trainer for the Americas for Siemens Healthcare. His responsibilities include training international applications specialists, sales staff, and customers on MR physics as well as how best to operate Siemens MR and advanced visualization systems.
