CT_Device_PhilipsRoyal Philips Electronics, a major company providing medical imaging systems and healthcare IT solutions, and Electron, a manufacturer of medical equipment in Russia, announced that they have recently finished the implementation and validation of the first Russian CT system. The new device was installed at the Hospital of War Veterans in St. Petersburg after the companies succeeded in obtaining clearance for their device from the appropriate authorities.

The new Russian CT device includes 16-slice imaging system and was manufactured completely at Electron’s production facilities in St. Petersburg. 15% of the components used during the manufacture of the CT scanner have been designed and produced locally in Russia. The hardware and software features of the CT scanner were developed to cope with the requirements of Russian hospitals. Among these features is Russian-language interface, which will significantly improve the efficiency of both diagnosis and medical staff training. Evgeny Ageenko, Head of the Hospital of War Veterans, St. Petersburg and Honored Doctor of the Russian Federation, "We are very pleased that our hospital has been the first to use this advanced Russian-made CT scanner and we are fully satisfied with the results of the clinical studies. Until recently, we only had access to a 2-slice imported scanner, but now we have the opportunity to increase the capacity of our diagnostic CT procedures and significantly improve the quality of our clinical studies."

The CEO of Electron, Alexander Elinson, commented "Philips and Electron worked together at all levels of the development, production and commercialization process, making our partnership unique in the Russian market. I am convinced that our domestic production of advanced medical equipment will catalyze growth in the local medical components industry and contribute to further innovation in the Russian healthcare industry. It will also help to reduce Russia's dependence on the import of healthcare equipment." Meanwhile, Ronald de Jong, General Manager for Philips Healthcare in Emerging Markets, said "In developing our first joint product we were aiming to respond to the unique requirements of the Russian healthcare system and offer a solution made specifically for Russian healthcare professionals," he added "Today we have proven that we have accomplished that task, and I hope that clinics across Russia will follow the example of Saint-Petersburg hospital so that they can address the urgent need for Russian doctors and patients to have better access to the latest diagnostic equipment."
