In commenting on the company’s gold medal win, one judge said, “I think they’re revolutionary for the imaging industry in the U.S.”

Jeffrey Bundy, CEO, UIH Solutions, was honored with a Gold Award as “Maverick of the Year – Business Products Industries.” Judges cited “strong examples of how Jeffrey turned industry norms on their head to drive growth in this category” and “the focus on people and culture as a differentiator” as key examples driving his recognition.

The uEXPLORER Total-Body PET/CT scanner received a Gold Award in the category “Innovation of the Year – Business Products Industries” and a Silver Award in the category “Health & Pharmaceuticals – Product.” One of the judges commented, “United Imaging is doing great things for people with their products as evidenced with the introduction of uEXPLORER. The world needs more innovation like this — products that can help people around the world.”

United Imaging’s UII (United Imaging Intelligence) America Team, its artificial intelligence (AI) division, received a Gold Award for “Achievement in Science or Technology.” Based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, the team also recently won top prize in the multi-coil 4x acceleration category of a competition organized by Facebook and NYU Langone Health, and it held a successful live demo at RSNA using computer vision to help enhance workflow efficiency and patient safety.
