Medison, one of the world’s leading researchers, developers, and manufacturers of ultrasound and other medical imaging products, is now part of the Samsung Electronics’ family since February 2011. Although based in Korea, Medison generates more than 80% of its revenues from outside Korea and is represented in some 110 countries around the world. Its history has been marked by a series of technological breakthroughs, such as introducing the world’s first commercially available 3D and 4D diagnostic ultrasound scanners. Driven by an investment of 12% of revenues into R&D, its range of machines now covers everything from the lightest and most portable of scanners to the very latest and most sophisticated in ultrasound technology.

Medison also produces digital X-rays and other medical imaging products.Medison recently introduced two new groundbreaking imaging technologies, Volume NT and HD Volume Imaging (HDVI), at the International Society of Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynecology (ISUOG) 7th International Scientific Meeting in Macau. First held in Singapore in 2004, this year’s International Scientific Meeting was held in Macau last February 25-27. Medison, a frontrunner in the development of ultrasound imaging technology, participated in the Meeting as a Platinum Sponsor. In addition to the Luncheon Symposium featuring talks by Professor Jon Hyett, Head of Discipline Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, The University of Sydney, Australia, and Georges Haddad, member of ISUOG’s Education Committee, Medison hosted a Hospitality Suite Program, which included live demonstrations of the Volume NT as well as PC Training with the Sonoview Pro.

Volume NT, the latest tool for nuchal translucency (NT) examination, provides quicker and more accurate diagnosis of Down’s syndrome by automatically finding the exact sagittal plane of the NT, which is crucial in the detection of Down’s syndrome. Unlike the 2D scanning, which is highly reliant on the position of the fetus proving difficult to find the exact mid-sagittal plane, Volume NT detects the true mid-sagittal view through the use of 3D technology.

The HDVI was also introduced at the Meeting as a breakthrough in 3D ultrasound imaging technology. The HDVI, which uses the newly improved 3D matrix imaging process, is able to produce high-resolution images with less speckles noise and clearer contrast than imaging devices based on 2D technology. Professor Jon Hyett expressed an optimistic outlook for the new innovative device saying that “it has been particularly useful in the detection of subtle lesions and fetal brain defects as well as the examination of the walls and valves of the fetal heart.”
