Shimadzu Medical System's Response to COVID-19

Mobile X-Ray System for Infection Control

During a pandemic infection, it is expected that the existing X-ray room will not be available to maintain isolation between infected and uninfected people, therefore it is necessary to prepare new isolated area(s) inside the hospital, or outside in tented controlled spaces, and to have an X-Ray system that can be operated in that area.
