Hitachi Healthcare Americas (Twinsburg, OH, USA) has announced that it will create a new dedicated research and development facility within its North American headquarters facility in Twinsburg, Ohio, USA. Set to open this year, the Hitachi Healthcare Innovation Center of Excellence will leverage advancements in artificial intelligence and machine learning to bring about a new generation of imaging technology.
Hitachi Healthcare Americas currently sells and supports medical imaging devices – including MRI, CT and ultrasound – at its Northeast Ohio facility. The creation of the R&D center will allow the Hitachi team to expand its scientific and engineering teams and more closely collaborate with industry key opinion leaders. When it opens, the facility will be Hitachi Healthcare Americas’ only healthcare R&D facility outside of Japan.
“Being in the heart of a healthcare mecca with such prestigious facilities and educational institutions is the perfect location for us to develop innovative technologies and leverage the local knowledge and talent in Northeastern Ohio,” said Yasuhiko Taniguchi, CEO for Hitachi Healthcare Americas.
