Canon Medical Systems provides integrated diagnostic solutions through long-term, customer-focused partnerships to improve the quality of life for all people
Canon Medical Systems is born from two global leaders—Canon and Toshiba Medical.
In business for more than 100 years, Toshiba Medical was built to improve the quality of life for all people. It delivered on this mission with medical innovations that are Made for Life—made to improve the lives of patients, clinicians and administrators. Its legacy was built with pioneering medical technology, such as the world’s first X-ray machines in 1932 and Japan’s first Magnetic Resonance Imaging systems (MRI) in 1983.
Toshiba Medical’s vision was strengthened in 2016 with its acquisition by Canon. Canon entered the healthcare business in 1940 with the development of Japan’s first indirect X-ray camera which was used for the early detection of pulmonary tuberculosis.
The partnership of these two companies (now Canon Medical Systems Corporation), brings together two cutting-edge technology businesses, founded with similar values of creativity, flexibility and patient-friendly healthcare solutions. Today, their combined history of research and innovation drive forward Canon Medical Systems’ vision for building a world-class healthcare enterprise.
For over 100 years, we have proudly pioneered the development of imaging solutions for the global medical community. Our rich history of collaboration has engaged the brilliant minds of many who will continue to set the benchmark for another 100 years and beyond.
We build relationships based on transparency, trust and respect. Our commitment to progressive medical, corporate, academic and community partnerships lies at the heart of what we do and why we do it. Together as one, we strive to create industry-leading solutions that deliver an enriched quality of life.
A shared dedication in providing quality products and support enables us to deliver a seamless service of patient care, now and for future generations. At Canon Medical Systems our quality processes underpin everything we do, reinforcing a future that is made for life.
A unified passion is ingrained in our DNA. We are collectively dedicated to pushing the boundaries in everything we do because we believe quality of life should be a given, not the exception. Generations of inherited passion builds a culture that is driven to excel for the benefit of humanity.
Built on a tradition of ‘people first’, our globally recognised commitment to prompt and personalised service, after sales support and quality education collaboratively lies at the heart of our ongoing success. We take care of our partners so they can take the best care of their patients.
Thousands of minds and millions of hours over a century of time have built a legacy of innovation that continues to evolve as we do. From our collaboratively rich research and development past we advance towards a bright future of technological innovation that is made for life.
It is our mission to provide medical professionals with solutions that support their efforts in contributing to the health and well-being of patients worldwide through diagnostic imaging equipment with uncompromised performance, comfort and safety features.
Made for Partnerships. Made for Patients. Made for You. Made for Life.
