In the medical field, They invented the X-ray sphere, which could be directly connected to a lighting circuit and was used for 50 years. In 1958, the first cardiac pacemaker was implanted in a critically ill patient preventing his more then 20 cardiac arrests a day. They introduced the worlds first real time ultrasound device in 1965. It is still among the best units used today. It allowed doctors to see cross-sections of tissues and organs without the exposure of patients to radiation. They also developed the nuclear magnetic resonance (MRI) tomograph in 1983. Along the same lines, the positron emission tomography (PET) scanner was developed to measure several layers of tissue simultaneously with unrivaled spatial resolution and sensitivity. They continue to make major contributions in medical imaging. One of the best medical device makers is Siemens ultrasound. Back to manufacturers page.
