We would like to express our sincere gratitude to you, our valued customers, for your continued support.
I would also like to express my appreciation to healthcare professionals and all others who continue to work on the frontlines of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

In 2020, the entire world was profoundly affected by COVID-19. We have been receiving positive news on clinical application of COVID-19 vaccines, however the situation concerning the spread of COVID-19 remains uncertain, and there is also a serious burden on many healthcare facilities. Based on our sincere commitment to supporting healthcare professionals who continue to work at the forefront of medical practice, we have been working hard to develop and provide total solutions for COVID-19 diagnosis such as CT, X-ray diagnostic systems, diagnostic ultrasound systems, rapid genetic testing systems for the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2), and rapid antigen testing systems.
Although our battle with COVID-19 continues, we must also continue our efforts toward the evolution of medicine. Last year, we started to manufacture magnets for our MRI systems in-house. This is to strengthening our MRI technologies by integrating companies that focus on developing and manufacturing magnets or that have technologies for achieving stable magnetic fields. We will further expand such efforts to offer solutions that embodies our Made for Life philosophy.
We will continue striving for further growth, with the mind that these changes we face during the COVID-19 pandemic are bringing steps toward further evolution.
I hope that in the “new normal” after COVID, 2021 marks the start of a bright future for us all.
