HOUSTON - October 12, 2022 - United Imaging Healthcare(hereinafter referred to as "United Imaging"), a global leader in producing advanced medical imaging and radiotherapy equipment, announced that it is now shipping its 20,000th installation and two additional installations to Manhattan, where a new advanced medical imaging clinic will soon open its doors.
The three installations are the uMR OMEGA® (magnetic resonance), the uCT® ATLAS (computed tomography), and the uMI® 550 (molecular imaging). They are being crated and shipped from United Imaging's nearly 100,000 square foot factory, showroom, and U.S. headquarters in Houston. They will be installed in a new imaging clinic called AMRIC that will offer both preventive and diagnostic imaging for people in New York and from around the world.
The uMR OMEGA is the first 75cm, ultra-wide bore 3T MRI with a 60 cm field of view and high homogeneity. The uCT ATLAS is United Imaging's most intelligent CT ever, with industry-leading rotation time and spatial resolution, and features uAI® AI-IR, the world's first combination of deep-learning and iterative reconstruction. The uMI 550 is a PET/CT with uEXPLORER® digital PET technology inside and an iterative reconstruction engine trained with uEXPLORER's total-body PET data. All three are flagship products that showcase United Imaging's breadth of innovation for the U.S. market and abroad.
"Just two and a half years ago we announced our 8,500th global installation." said Jeffrey M. Bundy, Ph.D, CEO of United Imaging Healthcare Solutions. "In any context, let alone in the context of what the world has experienced the past few years, we're very pleased with that rate of growth. During the pandemic, we've stayed ahead of supply chain pressures, and we've been able to open our U.S. headquarters, hire and grow because we've met commitments to our customers ahead of anything else. It's very important to us to continue to prioritize what our customers need from us, whether they're in Manhattan, New York or Manhattan, Kansas."
In this case, the new sophisticated clinic that is the destination of these three advanced imaging systems is called AMRIC (Advanced Medical & Research Imaging Center), which will soon open its doors on Manhattan's Upper East Side. "Our passion at AMRIC," commented a spokesperson, "is to use cutting-edge technologies and unparalleled patient care to enhance our patients' physical and mental well-being. Radiology is both an art and a science. Our Board-Certified Radiologists are incredibly talented in identifying and assimilating information to help our patients and referring physicians piece together a diagnostic puzzle derived from patient images. We can create the best plans for our patients by working with United Imaging, making full use of their superior imaging technologies."
