K&S was founded in 1974 by Bob King and Tom Slowey as an organization to provide Medical Physics consultation services. Bob came to Vanderbilt University Medical Center in 1967 having several years experience at Brookhaven National Laboratory as a staff physicist. Bob received his Master of Science degree from Vanderbilt University and was appointed Director of the Division of Physics and Biomedical Engineering of the Department of Radiology in 1970. Tom came to Vanderbit University in 1969 as a junior in an undergraduate engineering program after receiving two years of credit from the University of Tennessee extension in Nashville. Tom was hired by the Division of Radiation Therapy to train as an assistant physicist and to maintain a Varian Clinac 6, a Cobalt 60 unit, a treatment planning computer and a dose scanner. Tom received a BE in electronic engineering from Vanderbilt in 1970 and was appointed Associate Director of the Division of Physics in 1971. Tom and Bob provided consulting services to area institutions and physicians in diagnostic and therapy physics over the period from 1971 to 1974 while members of the faculty and staff of Vanderbilt University Medical School. After K&S was formed in 1974, Bob remained at Vanderbilt while Tom resigned from Vanderbilt and managed the consultation services with two physics technologists and a dosimetrist, Vivian Denton. Vivian trained at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in dosimetry and maintains her registry as a radiologic technologist and as a radiation therapist. Vivian is now Vice President and Quality Manager.
