Western partnership brings medical technology “to a new level”

March 14, 2019

Western University, along with London Health Sciences Centre (LHSC) and St Joseph’s Health Care London, has partnered with Canon Medical Systems Canada to create what the university is calling “an unprecedented alignment across the medical community” in the area of medical imaging technology. Western reports that the new partnership, which will be supported by a $4.5M investment, will allow doctors to bring research findings to patients' bedsides more rapidly and readily than ever before. “Having the Canon equipment installed at Robarts Research Institute will allow our scientists to use innovative approaches to take the technology to a new level,” said Marlys Koschinsky, Scientific and Executive Director of Robarts Research Institute at Western. Western (ON)
