According to David Widmann, president and COO at Konica Minolta Medical Imaging, the healthcare market now places added emphasis on point-of-care tools that help clinicians make more informed patient care decisions, and these early decisions can help reduce healthcare costs by providing the necessary information that could rule in or rule out disease or injury. Widmann added that primary imaging encompasses 70% of diagnostic imaging procedures; Konica Minolta’s business focuses solely on primary imaging.
