System underscores company’s mission to make high-end technology more broadly accessible

United Imaging Announces First U.S. Clinical Install of uMI 550 Digital PET/CT System

June 19, 2019 — United Imaging announced the first U.S. clinical installation of the uMI 550 Digital positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) system. The second United Imaging PET/CT system to be installed in the U.S. in the last 30 days, the uMI 550 is now in use at Southwest X-Ray LP in El Paso, Texas.

The uMI 550, which is part of United Imaging’s all-digital PET/CT portfolio, offers exceptional image clarity, according to the company. It also offers a large field of view, low dose and faster patient scanning – enabling a whole-body scan in four beds within 8 minutes. That level of speed and accuracy can have benefits for patients and clinicians alike.

“It’s important to Southwest X-Ray, LP, that we continue to bring the latest high-quality, innovative imaging technology to the community of El Paso,” said Fernando Escarzaga, chief executive officer, Southwest X-Ray LP. “Through partnering with United Imaging on this project, we continue to be one step ahead for our patients who now have access to advanced digital PET/CT technology in our outpatient facility.”
