MILESTONE IN MEDICAL FIELD
SHIMADZU History in Medical Field As The Pioneer of Medical Imaging Products
Succeeded in taking X-ray pictures
Large-size medical X-ray apparatus
Japan's first large X-ray apparatus using AC power. An induction coil type of X-ray apparatus with a rectifier to convert AC to DC, it was installed at the Ohtsu Hospital of Japan Red Cross Society.
X-ray apparatus "Diana"
Mechanical full-wave rectification system, with a capacity of 120kVp and 100mA. Dominated Japan's radiography industry at that time.
Deep therapy apparatus "Jupiter"
Mechanical rectification type provided with two main transformers and two rectifiers.
Opened the first institution to train radiographers in Japan,
which became "Kyoto College of Medical Science" today.
Diagnostic X-ray apparatus "Katsura" and "Hokoku"
These units conformed to the laws relating to shockproof and X-ray proof specifications. The X-ray tube was cooled by oil circulating in a tank, and the high voltage generator was enclosed in the oil tank together with the rectifier and the transformer. This was a full wave rectification system.
World's first Remote-controlled X-ray TV system
Control of all operations was possible from another room, and the radiologist was freed from the risk of being exposed to exposure. World's first system.
