Meet Canon Medical Systems, Formerly Toshiba Medical.

Canon Medical Systems is born from two global leaders—Canon and Toshiba Medical.

In business for more than 100 years, Toshiba Medical was built to improve the quality of life for all people. It delivered on this mission with medical innovations that are Made for Life—made to improve the lives of patients, clinicians and administrators. Its legacy was built with pioneering medical technology, such as the world’s first X-ray machines in 1932 and Japan’s first Magnetic Resonance systems in 1983.

Toshiba Medical’s vision was strengthened in 2016 with its acquisition by Canon. Canon entered the healthcare business in 1940 with the development of Japan’s first indirect X-ray camera which was used for the early detection of pulmonary tuberculosis.

The partnership of these two companies (now Canon Medical Systems Corporation), brings together two cutting-edge technology businesses, founded with similar values of innovation, quality, and focusing on customers. In the spirit of the Canon corporate philosophy of “kyosei” and our own management slogan of “Made for Life” (Made for Partnerships, Made for Patients, Made for You.), we will continue to expand in order to accelerate the growth of medical equipment business and contribute to better healthcare throughout the world.

Patients are at the heart of everything we do. At Canon Medical Systems, we work hand in hand with our partners—our medical, academic and research community. We build relationships based on transparency, trust and respect. Together as one, we strive to create industry-leading solutions that deliver an enriched quality of life. Together, we make it possible.
