TIRAT CARMEL, Israel, Feb. 13, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Medic Vision Imaging Solutions, the leading innovator of vendor-independent solutions for CT and MRI scanners, today announced that it has signed a multi-million dollar partnership agreement with KAME, an affiliate of Beijing Century Galaxy Technology Group, to deliver over 350 iQMR systems to healthcare centers and diagnostic imaging providers in China, allowing them to reduce MRI scan-time by up to 40% and significantly increase productivity.
iQMR is a machine learning assisted iterative image reconstruction software enabling the use of short MRI protocols, to facilitate enhanced image quality, increased productivity, fewer repeating scans and improved patients' experience.
KAME is an affiliate of Beijing Century Galaxy Technology Group specializing in healthcare services and medical devices. Kevin Zhang, President of International Operations: "The current overload on the Chinese diagnostic imaging services is extreme. While the U.S healthcare system provides 360 million people with 12,000 MRI scanners, in China more than 1.3 billion people are served with approximately 50% less scanners. It is common for Chinese imaging centers to work 24/7 to accommodate the increased need for MRI scans, bringing the average workload per scanner to 100 scans per day. In comparison, the average U.S workload is 15-20 scans/day."
Zhang continues: "iQMR's ability to cut scan time by as much as 40%, while maintaining diagnostic value, is extremely beneficial and will allow us to revolutionize the diagnostic imaging services market in China to incomparable efficiency and an upgraded patient experience."
"For the last decade, Medic Vision has established its image enhancement solutions - low dose for CT and short time for MRI - in the US market," says Eyal Aharon, Medic Vision CEO. "Today, we are proud that a prominent provider of medical services in China, KAME, selected iQMR after validating its ability to reduce MRI scan time by 40% for already shortened scans. The current economic environment obliges medical providers all over the world to improve their productivity and maximize diagnostic performances. iQMR acknowledges this trend, as demonstrated in clinical studies and in our clients' facilities. We are enthusiastic to bring our proven leading-edge technology to larger scales in China."
