I'm Ryan Polselli, a Breast Imaging Radiologist. Welcome to my site!
Ryan Polselli's Bio:
Dr. Ryan Polselli is a Diplomate of the American Board of Radiology with fellowship training in Breast Imaging from Emory University Healthcare. Dr. Polselli is currently in clinical practice as the Head of Breast Imaging for the private radiology group, Global Imaging Specialists, covering numerous facilities throughout the United States. He is also the founder and president for MammoLink®, a company providing premier in-office mammography services for primary care and OB-gyn group practices.
Ryan Polselli joined the United States Navy in 1992. While in the Navy, he attended the United States Naval Academy Preparatory School and graduated first in his class. During his short career he received several letters of commendation and the National Defense Service Medal. However, he is proudest of being elected by his peers as the Honorman for his platoon which is awarded for the highest level of honor and integrity because he states there is no greater honor than being respected by those that know you best.
Education and Professional Training:
Ryan Polselli graduated summa cum laude with a bachelors degree in Physics. He obtained a second bachelors degree in biology in order to complete pre-medical requirements. He attended medical school at the University of South Florida’s Morsani College of Medicine in Tampa, Florida. While in medical school, he participated in research testing the efficacy of dichloroacetate, a drug thought to potentially provide limb saving benefit for soldiers wounded on the battlefield. This research was presented at the 32nd annual meeting of the Military Society of Vascular Surgery. Dr. Polselli was awareded the Superior Research Presentation award by the University of South Florida for the presentation of his work.
Dr. Polselli Graduated from medical school with honors in the top 10% of his class. He was accepted to complete a 1 year internship at Spartanburg Regional Hospital in Spartanburg, South Carolina, followed by a 4 year residency in Diagnostic Radiology at Emory University School of Medicine. During his intern year, Ryan Polselli was recognized for his outstanding and compassionate patient care and received the Excellence in Patient Care Award. Later, while at Emory University, he was recognized for his efforts in teaching medical students and received the Excellence in Medical Education Award.
During his residency Dr. Polselli felt it was his calling to devote his life to helping patients affected by breast cancer. As a result, he completed a fellowship in breast imaging as an Associate Professor of Medicine at the Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University Hospital and the Avon Breast Foundation of Grady Memorial Hospital.
Ryan Polselli began his clinical career as the Director of Breast Imaging at Memorial Health University Community Hospital in Savannah, Georgia. As the Director, he expanded breast cancer screening and diagnosis options for patients to include interventional breast MRI procedures. He increased the screening cancer detection rate and organized procedures to diagnose patients more compassionately, efficienty, and accurately. He provided noon conference lectures and oversight for radiology residents rotating in the breast imaging department. Ryan Polselli also worked with the breast surgery, radiation oncology, pathology, and oncology departments in interdisciplinary fashion. Together, the departments were recognized as a Breast Center of Excellence and during his tenure they were accredited by the National Accreditation Program of Breast Centers.
Shortly after beginning clinical practice, Dr. Ryan Polselli realized certain patient needs were not being effectively met in the current healthcare system and started his own company to address those needs. His company originally focused exclusively on technical innovations and marketed several patented devices that reduce medical errors and improve the patient breast cancer screening and diagnostic experience to healthcare companies. More recently however, the company started a subdivision, known as MammoLink®, which offers it's own premier breast cancer screening and diagnostic services directly to patients and clinicians throughout the United States.
In 2016, Dr. Ryan Polselli founded MammoLink®, a company which is redefining the traditional relationship between patients, breast imaging radiologists and OB-gyn and family practice physicians. The company offers technological and radiological expertise to physicians directly involved in patient care in order to significantly simplify and expedite the breast cancer screening process for both patients and physicians. MammoLink® is currently in the process of developing partnerships with physicain groups and breast cancer organizations throughout the United States. Dr. Polselli hopes that this will make breast cancer screening more available to patients, prevent missed screening visits, and ultimately save lives.
Ryan Polselli was born and raised throughout much of his life in coastal Florida, just outside of Tampa. However, he also spent several years growing up in a “polar opposite” small valley town just outside of Anchorage, Alaska. Both places fostered in him a love and appreciation for all things related to the great outdoors including hiking, boating, water and snow skiing, off-road motorsports, and flying. He is most passionate about flying, an obsession he developed as a child taking small plane trips over the waters in Florida and the mountains in Alaska. He maintains a private pilot license and enjoys flying whenever life affords the opportunity. Ryan is Married to his wife Miranda. Together they currently reside most of the time in Palm Harbor, Florida, but travel much of the year for work. They have a Golden Retriever named Piper and consider her their "child" for the time being. Together they enjoy traveling, photography, and a good restaurant. In the future, Ryan and Miranda both hope to put down some permanent community roots where they can raise their future children.
