Canon will show how diagnostic ultrasound innovation need not cost the earth

Canon Medical Systems UK’s #madeforlife philosophy and Aplio i-series of diagnostic ultrasound systems will be showcased at the BMUS meeting, where delegates can learn about the company’s approach to balancing development of innovative ultrasound systems with a sustainable approach to carbon offsetting and charitable links.

Canon Medical Systems is ‘carbon neutral’ and meets all PAS 2060 requirements by the British Standards Institute, as well as having official partner status from the United Nations’ Division for Sustainable Development Goals.

Every purchase of a diagnostic ultrasound system by a healthcare organisation is translated into tonnes of carbon and offset to a high impact project in a developing country. For example, one Aplio i-series ultrasound system helps positively change the lives of seven people in Africa by supplying 3,415 litres of clean water from borehole improvements and building energy-saving cooking stoves.

“Our range of ultrasound systems is one of the most extensive in the world, supporting the needs of all clinical disciplines from radiology, obs/gynae, MSK, urology and vascular,” said ultrasound regional manager, south, Tim Palarm. “But our innovation doesn’t stop there – we’re proud to have initiatives in place that not only support the needs of our UK healthcare marketplace, but also help raise the quality of health and living standards further afield.”

The company’s chosen national charity Support Dogs will also be in attendance at Ultrasound 2019 to demonstrate how assistance dogs can improve the safety, independence and wellbeing of people living with epilepsy, autism or disabilities.
