The medical imaging industry has always been driven by innovation and new technology that improves diagnostic accuracy, lowers medical costs and ultimately delivers better patient care.
New developments don't happen in a vacuum. Every major advance in medical imaging technology has resulted from the combined efforts of research scientists, physicians and the medical imaging equipment industry. The results of these efforts are on display in the technical exhibit halls at the RSNA annual meeting.
One new exhibitor at this year's meeting is United Imaging Healthcare (UIH), which will be displaying a broad portfolio of products, including MR, CT, MI and DR, while also describing its innovative work in AI research.
Recognizing the importance of partnering in bringing new ideas into practice, UIH puts collaboration at the center of its design process. The company strives to increase its pace of bringing great technological breakthroughs to market and to more customers. It pushes toward this aggressive goal by working in close partnership with research institutions and hospitals worldwide to uncover new solutions for the medical imaging community.
"United Imaging aspires to unlock innovation through open and flexible thinking, advanced and diversified value propositions and breakthrough technologies," said Dr. Xue Min, chairman and chief executive officer of UIH.
Over the past two years, UIH has been in collaboration with the EXPLORER consortium, a research project aiming to design, develop and construct a high sensitivity PET scanner for a wide range of biomedical research applications.
In this partnership, UIH has been working with physicists, biomedical researchers and physicians at the University of California, Davis to develop the world's first PET/CT system designed to cover the entire human body and provide real-time dynamic imaging of all organs.
The company is also excited about its expansion of the U.S. headquarters in Houston to integrate the U.S. research and development, production, training and marketing functions and to better support the company's growing team across the U.S. to serve local customers.
