By AuntMinnie.com staff writers

February 5, 2020 -- United Imaging Healthcare said that it has donated CT scanners, x‑ray systems, and protective gear worth more than $1.4 million to hospitals in Wuhan, China, to aid in diagnosing patients with the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV).

The company said it finished installing one uCT 780 160-slice CT scanner and two uCT 760 128-slice CT scanners on February 1 at Huoshenshan Hospital, a 1,000-bed emergency field hospital that was built in less than 10 days in Wuhan. In addition, United Imaging said that it accelerated production to get more than 100 CT scanners and x-ray machines out quickly to hospitals in Wuhan, Shanghai, Beijing, Zhejiang, Inner Mongolia, and other regions in China.

Furthermore, the vendor said it has also implemented its UIH Cloud remote diagnosis platform at frontline hospitals, enabling patient images scanned at designated hospitals to be uploaded to top hospitals in China for remote real-time diagnosis and guidance from doctors.
