Shimadzu Medical Systems USA has acquired Core Medical Imaging Inc. in order to further expand its healthcare business in North America.

CMI, with its head office in Kenmore, Wash., has provided medical imaging products and service as an authorized dealer of several professional brands, such as Shimadzu, since the year 2000, with a focus throughout the Northwest region of the U.S. Shimadzu’s acquisition of CMI reflects a key mid-term business strategy of its medical systems division to expand its business by further strengthening the North American business.

As average life expectancy becomes longer, medical imaging technology is gaining a more significant role in supporting healthier lives by detecting diseases earlier, diagnosing more precisely and supporting less invasive treatments to minimize patient burden while maximizing quality of life. Shimadzu said that this new business investment will help them strengthen and expand their direct involvement in the North American healthcare market and contribute to better personal health with premium medical systems and technologies.
