Canon Inc. Realigns Global Medical Business Strategy


Further cements Canon’s efforts to prepare for future growth of its medical business.

As part of Canon Inc.’s global medical business strategic realignment, the X-ray business operations within Canon U.S.A. Inc.’s wholly owned subsidiary Virtual Imaging, Inc. will transfer to Canon Medical Systems USA, Inc. (CMSU) effective January 1, 2020.

The global medical imaging market is anticipated to expand extensively year over year by 2025, fueled by the aging population coupled with the need for early stage detection of chronic disease. As the leading medical imaging market globally, the U.S. represents the largest opportunity for future growth.
