Who We Are

In addition to commanding the biggest share of market, ITN, with its detailed product comparison charts, is the resource buying team members use for specifying, recommending and authorizing technology purchases. Its award-winning editorial/design team has been honored most recently as a 2020 Jesse H. Neal Award Finalist for Best Technical Content.
History of ITN
Imaging Technology News has been committed to this industry for over a half-century, and had its beginnings as a publication called Medical Electronics & Equipment News, founded by Chilton Publishing in Philadelphia in 1961. In 1975, it was acquired by Reilly Communications Group, and became known as MEEN shortly thereafter. As time passed and the industry evolved, the publication was divided into two new brands, MEEN Imaging Technology News and MEEN Cardiology/Critical Care Technology — which today is known as Diagnostic and Interventional Cardiology (DAIC). In 2009, RCG was acquired by Scranton Gillette Communications.
In January 2020, Park Ridge, N.J.-based publisher Wainscot Media acquired Imaging Technology News (ITN) and its sister publication Diagnostic and Interventional Cardiology (DAIC) from Scranton Gillette Communications of Arlington Heights, Ill. “We’re impressed by the recent growth trajectories of these brands,” said Mark Dowden, CEO of Wainscot. “Both ITN and DAIC have become increasingly influential in their fields, and that’s a credit to the publisher’s embrace of digital opportunities. Dedication to audience engagement has produced market-leading growth in website traffic, and a focus on analytics is yielding audience insights that help to match buyers and sellers.
“The deal is a natural outgrowth of our medical publishing heritage,” continued Dowden, referring to Dowden Health Media, the predecessor company to Wainscot, which specialized in medical journals and continuing medical education. The acquisition expands Wainscot’s portfolio of more than 50 publications, which range from healthy living and luxury lifestyle titles to city and regional magazines.
