"Designing Growth Strategies is in our DNA"
Medical imaging is an important tool in modern medicines for the apt diagnosis of diseases. Medical imaging allows for more detailed insights into the health of tissue and organs. This has led to the establishment of many clinical imaging centers across the world with the advanced and latest technology offering a variety of imaging services. However, a lot of imaging centers nowadays prefer portable imaging systems as they are more convenient to use. Many mobile X-ray systems and CT scanners are now introduced, which can be easily moved from one place to another based on the patient’s requirements. Thus, the rapid adoption of mobile imaging systems is one of the major reasons for the surge in the portable imaging solutions industry.
