Q: What has been Associated X-Ray’s biggest achievement?

Q: What is on the horizon for Associated X-Ray?
A: We are forging into the future with new technologies, such as artificial intelligence (AI) and expand our footprint with CT and MRI.
Q: Is there anything else you would like our readers to know?
