Grumbach served as professor and chief of the department of radiology at Centre Hospitalier Universitaire d'Amiens, France, from 1973 to 2007, and he was a pioneer in breast cancer screening and breast ultrasound, according to Dr. Anne Tardivon of Institut Curie and the Société d'Imagerie de la Femme in Paris.

"Besides his appetite to spread and teach our speciality over the world, Yves was a gentleman and a very kind and tireless companion with the youngest generations," Tardivon noted in her tribute on the EUSOBI website.
