UW News

The University of Wisconsin–Madison School of Medicine and Public Health and GE HealthCare announced today a 10-year strategic collaboration that builds on an iconic relationship spanning more than 40 years. The new research collaboration expands the existing scope beyond medical imaging to new frontiers in digital technologies and disease-focused solutions.

Combining UW–Madison’s world-class team of physicians, scientists, and researchers with GE HealthCare’s expertise in modernizing medical technology, the new collaboration augments foundations in imaging and medical physics with future plans that could drive improved diagnosis and disease management through developments in magnetic resonance (MR), computed tomography (CT), ultrasound, interventional radiology (IR), theranostics and molecular imaging (MI) modalities, as well as patient care solutions. The collaboration is aimed at shaping the future of medical imaging, to improve the standard of care and patient outcomes. Furthermore, it has the potential to advance artificial intelligence (AI) and digital solutions across the care continuum to enhance clinical workflows and the delivery of more precise, personalized care with greater value.

“Our enduring relationship with GE HealthCare has led to advanced clinical technologies as a result of research that we have also seamlessly translated from benchtop to bedside and deployed in real-world clinical settings,” said Thomas Grist, MD, FACR, Chair, Department of Radiology at UW–Madison. “Technology will continue to play an important role in providing the best care possible for patients. With our shared goals of improving experiences for patients and cultivating more personalized care, the work of our combined teams has the potential to impact many patients around the world for years to come.” Read more…
