Medical and Healthcare Solutions


Hitachi Medical Corporation is an integrated medical systems manufacturer involved in every aspect of the medical equipment, medical information systems, general analysis systems and medical analysis systems from R&D and manufacturing to sales and services.

The Hitachi Medical Group utilises the Hitachi Group's cutting-edge technological expertise; pioneering the design and development of high-end medical systems and products that provide sophisticated patient-focused medical equipment for four key medical field areas including:

  1. Diagnostic imaging equipment
  2. In-vitro diagnostics
  3. Treatment
  4. Bioinformatics

Our experts continually work on the development of modern medical diagnostics products and biotechnology equipment as an endeavour to fulfill the requirements of future modern healthcare while also pursuing global sales and service strategies to provide solutions that are truly useful in the medical field for practitioner’s and patients alike.

Hitachi has a solid track record in the field of medical systems for the early diagnosis of illness. In the field of MRI machines, for example, we produce systems that maintain high image quality, yet are designed with an elliptical opening that gives a more spacious feeling and offers more comfort for people with large body frames or who suffer from claustrophobia. Hitachi's CT machines are designed to use the latest technology for reducing exposure to radiation, making them safer for people undergoing scans.

Hitachi continues to focus on reviewing technologies and refining product features to provide the best priced performance systems - all while using emerging technology to build a better future for all mankind.

Praise for Hitachi technology

Praise for Hitachi technology

Hitachi's technology in Proton Beam Therapy has received praise from experts around the world. The Proton Beam Therapy acts as a more patient friendly cancer treatment, compared to that of conventional radiation therapy. It precisely targets tumors, minimising the damage to surrounding healthy tissue.

In 2001, Hitachi delivered its first Proton Beam Therapy System to the Proton Medical Application Research Center at the University of Tsukuba in Japan. In 2006, one of the world's leading cancer treatment centers, MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas in the U.S., began treating patients using Hitachi Proton Beam Therapy System. The center has treated more than 4,800 patients over the past seven years with excellent reviews.

Health Sector Solutions

Diagnostic Imaging Systems

Diagnostic Imaging Systems

An MRI system receives radio waves emitted by the magnetic resonance of hydrogen atoms in the patient's body surrounded by magnets and displays a diagnostic image. In addition to MRI systems, Hitachi provides other types of diagnostic imaging systems for different testing applications, including X-ray, CT, and ultrasonic diagnostic systems. We're dedicated to developing advanced products to create increasingly effective and comfortable examination and diagnostic environments.

Enterprise Data Management Solutions

Enterprise Data Management Solutions

The ability to provide access to relevant patient data is vital to good clinical decision-making, and requires effective collaboration among all the health organisations and staff members involved. Hitachi applies virtualisation of data and storage; cloud computing and other innovative data management solutions to enable vendor neutral information sharing, aggregation and analysis across the healthcare enterprise.

Automated Analysis Systems

Automated Analysis Systems

Hitachi develops the automated analysis systems required to produce clinical test results, drawing extensively on high-precision micro-dispensing and robot arm technologies to optimise the quality of clinical tests. To ensure optimal compatibility with future clinical testing methods and to make testing processes as efficient as possible, our products also incorporate a broad range of other technologies, including specimen transport and information processing technologies.
