United Imaging (Houston, TX, USA), a manufacturer of advanced medical imaging and radiotherapy equipment, is showcasing its comprehensive portfolio of innovative technologies at RSNA 2023. This includes a series of global firsts and pioneering medical AI solutions, demonstrating the company's progress in R&D and its commitment to transforming medical diagnostics and patient care.

At RSNA 2023, United Imaging is featuring the uMR Jupiter 5T, a revolutionary whole-body 5T MRI system that transcends the traditional constraints of ultra-high-field MRI, previously confined to imaging of the brain and selected MSK joints. The potential applications of the uMR Jupiter 5T extend to encompass the abdomen, heart, pelvis, and additional anatomical regions. uMR Jupiter has the potential to eclipse the capabilities of standard 3T MRI machines in resolution and signal-to-noise ratio, delivering clarity that empowers radiologists to uncover clinical details previously hidden, truly allowing them to 'see the unseen.' The uMR Jupiter 5T is also designed to overcome the key hurdles of ultra-high field MRI: image uniformity and radio frequency safety. It fits into existing 3T MRI spaces, signaling a significant advancement in the industry. Furthermore, it is equipped with the uAIFI Technology Platform, enhancing it with the transformative power of accessible artificial intelligence.

United Imaging’s Booth #4100 at RSNA 2023 also features the uAIFI Technology Platform, revolutionizing uMR scanners with AI technology. This platform brings a new level of AI integration to uMR systems, significantly improving image quality and making diagnostic processes faster and more user-friendly. Some standout features include ACS, the FDA-approved AI-assisted MR acceleration technology designed to enhance both 2D and 3D imaging, and EasySense respiratory gating and monitoring, offering a unique, belt-free experience for patients while simultaneously streamlining the workflow for healthcare professionals.

United Imaging is inviting RSNA attendees to an engaging and immersive interactive showcase that brings the future possibilities of uAIFI to life. Participants can step into the roles of an operator, patient, radiologist, or C-suite to directly experience how uAIFI could transform their specific workflow. This role-playing journey vividly demonstrates the platform's profound potential impact on enhancing image quality, reducing scan times and improving the patient experience. As an invitation to step into the future of healthcare, where technology meets practical application in an extraordinary interactive exhibit, this immersive program adds a futuristic and engaging dimension to the booth, highlighting the company's commitment to leading-edge AI in medical imaging.

In computed tomography, United Imaging is featuring the uCT ATLAS, an ultra-premium CT scanner for cardiac diagnostics. The device's rapid rotation speeds, extensive z-axis coverage, and integrated AI enable a shift towards non-invasive, efficient, and cost-effective cardiac care. This leads to more accurate diagnoses at a fraction of the cost, paving the way for early detection and better management of cardiovascular diseases. United Imaging is also unveiling the uDR 380i Pro, an innovative mobile X-ray system characterized by its sleek and lightweight design with robust 50 kW power capacity, providing unmatched clinical flexibility. The uDR 380i Pro revolutionizes clinical workflow to truly deliver power at the point of care with its uVision remote console. With its compact and lightweight design and flexible positioning (and featuring a long-range battery capacity that allows up to 800 X-ray exposures per charge), the uDR 380i Pro fits in the tightest of spaces such as the Emergency Room (ER) and Intensive Care Units (ICU). Attendees can test drive this system on the company’s obstacle course, an interactive showcase designed to highlight the system's agility and practicality in real-world scenarios.

In the molecular imaging field, United Imaging is presenting the new uMI Panorama which features a 2.9 mm NEMA resolution, 35 cm axial FOV, 143cps/kBq effective system sensitivity, and 194 ps timing resolution. The uMI Panorama GS, the flagship product of the uMI Panorama family, streamlines whole-body imaging with 148 cm axial FOV, enhances patient experience and research capabilities, and was the first whole-body system to break the 200 ps barrier. At the company's RSNA booth this year, AI is a highlight, showing how the fusion of AI and imaging technology can streamline and elevate diagnostic procedures. Additionally, United Imaging Intelligence, an AI company within United Imaging Group's portfolio, is demonstrating how AI is revolutionizing healthcare.

At RSNA, United Imaging Intelligence is showing its cutting-edge AI solutions across the realms of neurology, cardiology, and oncology, plus a comprehensive AI portfolio on thoracic imaging. Within each of these areas, AI provides support and improvement through the entire workflow, from imaging to prevention, diagnosis, treatment, follow-up, and research. RSNA attendees can see holographic projections of lower limb vascular structures seamlessly overlaying human subjects. This innovation is United Imaging Intelligence's uAI-MERITS (Metaverse Ecosystem for Robotic Intervention, Therapy, and Surgery) technology, which is designed and engineered to create the digital twin of the patient, medical staff, and operating environment (OR) with cutting-edge AI and Vision technologies. The aim is to empower comprehensive healthcare management, spanning the spectrum of pre-operative preparation, intra-operative precision navigation, and post-operative follow-up.

"RSNA 2023's theme 'Leading through Change' resonates with our core values," said Dr. Al Zhang, Ph.D, Chairman & Co-CEO, "and reflects United Imaging's brand promise of 'Passion for Change.' Our technology is designed to prove our commitment to the U.S. and global markets. And our investment in innovation has yielded tangible results, evidenced by our customers' success stories in the U.S. and worldwide, reinforcing our vision and dedication to excellence in the global healthcare market."

"At RSNA 2018 everyone was asking who we are. Just five short years later, we're having conversations about how we create Equal Healthcare for All, how we have created value through programs like Software Upgrades for Life, how we have built ourselves for the modern world to the degree that none of our customers were delayed in receiving deliveries or parts during COVID...it's been five years of huge growth, and we can't wait to share it at RSNA 2023 and continue to build upon it for decades to come," added Jeffrey M. Bundy, Ph.D, CEO of United Imaging in the U.S.
