Mindray Ultrasound in North America
Mindray's popularity at RSNA reflects its impressive performance in the North America ultrasound market. Since its debut in the US ultrasound market, Mindray has proved itself a leader in this field with innovative technologies. According to the latest iData research studies, the company ranks #3 in the US point-of-care ultrasound segment. Data has it that Mindray systems are in use at more than 2/3 of American hospitals, and at 9 of the top 10 US cardiac hospitals, helping front-line clinicians to cope with medical challenges on a daily basis.
The Hennepin County Medical Center (HCMC), for example, is a Level I trauma center, providing the highest level of surgical care to trauma patients. The facility was once overburdened with heavy workload as most hospitals are. With the introduction of Mindray TE7, the doctors and nurses have witnessed changes in ultrasound use and experienced convenience as well as diagnostic confidence that the smart system brought to the hospital.
Mindray’s success in North American should be attributed to its dedication in innovation and cultivation in local ultrasound market. Mindray established three R&D centers in New Jersey, Silicon Valley, and Seattle after entering the US market. These large R&D centers have strong technological capabilities, ranking at the forefront of medical innovation in the US and worldwide. Each R&D center gives full play to its professional advantages, keeps close cooperation with experts, and absorbs more experts to apply new intelligent products. “One of our reasons to success in North America is the evolution of Mindray as a technology company. We focus on advanced medical technologies and do it in way that makes it accessible to all hospitals”, said Wayne Quinn, President of Mindray North America.

Envision More Possibilities in Healthcare
Mindray has always considered RSNA more than a chance of showcasing its products and technologies, but more importantly, it is a platform that enables intimate communication with the medical community. RSNA further enhances Mindray’s communication and cooperation with academics and practitioners, creating stronger synergy to the entire industry.
During the RSNA Annual Meeting, Mindray met with Harvey L. Nisenbaum, president of the World Federation for Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology (WFUMB). Founded in 1973, the WFUMB’s vision is to bring sustainable ultrasound programs to underserved areas of the world to help improve global healthcare through collaboration, communication, and education. Devoted to making healthcare more accessible to humanity, Mindray shares WFUMB’s belief that medical professionals and technologies can make a huge difference to people's lives, which in turn inspires its practices to bring medical assistance across borders.
WFUMB has branches all around the world. The Regional Federations cover National Societies of Ultrasound in Europe (EFSUMB), in Asia (AFSUMB), in North America (AIUM), in Latin America (FLAUS), in Australasia (ASUM) and in Africa (MASU).
This is not the first time Mindray has collaborated with leading voices in the field. Every year, Mindray invites world-renowned experts to give onsite training to thousands of medical personnel in underserved regions. This November, Mindray teamed up for the fifth time with pioneering OB/GYN expert Dr. Philippe Jeanty and provided training to clinicians in 4 countries. Through the joint effort with the top notch doctors, Mindray strives to bring the latest medical knowledge and technologies to the world and contribute to the development of global healthcare welfare.

Mindray’s devotion in accessible healthcare lies beyond providing fundamental ultrasound training programs, it is also dedicated to the development of an international platform that enlightens more great thinking, for Mindray believes with the joint effort of top academics and practitioners, we can evoke more sparkles of medical innovations. In the same month, 50 great minds from all over Europe convened in Naples for the Resona Club annual convention, sharing forefront researches, clinical practices and new discoveries in their specialized disciplines with ultrasound imaging. 7 honorable speakers from Europe's top tier hospitals, universities and academic associations shared their insights and researches made by Mindray’s Resona Series Ultrasound Systems and initiated a heated discussion and deep thinking by attendees.
Mindray is dedicated to bring better healthcare to all humanity. That means we will not only engage ourselves in the development of cutting edge medical equipment and solutions, but also in globally dissemination of medical expertise. Mindray will continue to be an international platform that supports collaborative efforts in research, training and education to raise standards of healthcare and improve lives of patients.
