Fysicon develops both hardware and software for the healthcare fields, including hospital IT systems and cardiovascular monitoring systems, according to a press release from Canon Medical. The company’s cardiovascular devices, including equipment for reading cardiac waveforms and analyzing cardiac function, are currently sold globally.
“I’m really pleased that we can provide new clinical value to patients and medical professionals by combining Fysicon’s advanced technologies with our systems,” Fysicon CEO Linda Elberse said in a press release.
Canon Medical said it will look to release integrated solutions that combine Fysicon products and its own X-ray angiography systems in markets outside Japan, and that it will continue to explore solutions that integrate technologies from both companies.
“We can provide new total solutions for cardiovascular treatment and management through integration of our company with Canon Medical Systems. I believe that the experience and expertise of both parties will surely be useful in helping to solve challenges in clinical practice.” Canon Medical prez Toshio Takiguchi said in a prepared statement.
Last month, Canon Medical Systems said it won FDA clearance for its Vantage Galan 3 tesla XGO edition magnetic resonance imaging system.
