    White Paper: Scaling Medical Devices

    Jennifer Zickel, Product Line Manager - COM Express


    The use of medical imaging is expanding, driven particularly by the need

    for patient-centric service at the point of care. A patient-centric approach

    to healthcare drives the need for segmentation across use-cases, including

    general diagnostic imaging, critical care, cardiology, vascular, emergency

    care, intervention and women’s healthcare. This trend is decreasing the time

    to diagnosis, improving diagnostic accuracy, and making state-of-the-art

    imaging technologies more affordable and widely-used.


    This diversity of platforms creates significant challenges for medical

    equipment designers, particularly those who must employ different system

    architectures in order to maximize performance for the high-end and minimize

    product cost for the low-end.
