The company has also established extensive collaborations with many world-renowned clinical and scientific research institutions. An outstanding example is the cooperation with Yale University on the development of an advanced neuro-PET/CT for the BRAIN initiative, a major project of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Also working with Washington University in st louis, United Imaging has advanced the speed of MR heart scanning, post-processing and imaging diagnosis based on our 1.5T MR with AI support. Another example comes from McGovern Medical School at the University of Texas for cardiac molecular imaging research based on our PET/CT.
Several “world firsts” debuted at Arab Health
The world’s first whole-body PET/CT, uEXPLORER® is an ultra-high-resolution digital PET/CT with a 194 cm PET axial field of view (FOV) that enables the whole body to be scanned in a bed position. The system offers dynamic whole-body scanning, enables extremely low patient dose and produces ultra-high image resolution, changing the way traditional whole-body PET/CT imaging is performed.
The uMR OMEGA™ is the world’s first ultra-wide bore 75cm 3T MR designed to break traditional boundaries without compromising image quality. The unprecedented ultra-wide bore is offered not only to improve patient experience, but also for MRI simulation for radiotherapy planning or intraoperative MRI. Combined with the uAIFI technology platform, it enables fast and accurate investigations.
The uAIFI technology platform focuses on the application of intelligent sensors, advanced chips and artificial intelligence technologies. It also enables the seamless merging of MRI hardware evolution with software design throughout the imaging chain, breaking down traditional data silos and laying a foundation for continuous innovation over time.
