Expertise

History

Since 1999, as hard it is for self-financed company, Medecom maintains balance between innovation and growth, as essential path to ensure sustainable development of the company.

The innovative direction is an integral DNA part of the company. From the beginning, Medecom moves towards niche markets with high clinical potential. That was the way of success for many solutions as stitching reconstruction module as best example.

From the core competency in image processing and diagnostic imaging, we deeply extend our expertise thanks to closeness with medical imaging professionals, being most attentive to their issues and clinical needs.

Today, clearly turned towards future, we are investing in North America, China and Oceania, in our own research laboratory without compromising improvements of our existing solution portfolio.
