The company also announced strategic partnerships with Mohamed and Obaid Al Mulla Group, one of the largest group companies in Dubai, and American Hospital Dubai, the premier private healthcare provider in the Middle East.
“The Middle East and Africa region is a robust and fast-growing market with an ever-expanding medical demand. We are pleased and honored to make our debut at Arab Health this year. We are officially open for business in the MEA region,” said James Xia, co-president of United Imaging.

Sherif Beshara, CEO of Mohamed and Obaid Al Mulla Group, said, “In line with our commitment to abide by the overarching goals set by the UAE’s foresighted leadership, we continue to partner with globally reputed companies that would assist us to improve the quality of healthcare we provide using their products and services.

At Arab Health 2020, United Imaging brought its full portfolio of advanced medical imaging devices — PET/CT，PET/MR，MR，CT，DR, and AI products — including the world’s first Total-body PET/CT uEXPLORER and the latest 75 cm Ultra-wide Bore 3.0TMR uMR Omega, which launched at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) in Chicago in December 2019.
The Total-body PET/CT uEXPLORER is a revolutionary molecular imaging product that extends the axial FOV from about 20-30 centimeters to nearly 2 meters, and accomplishes total-body imaging in a single bed position in as little as 20 to 30 seconds. It also allows for fast and continuous tracking of tracer distribution in blood vessels, organs, and tissues throughout the body. With these cutting-edge capabilities, the uEXPLORER opens new research opportunities that have not been possible with traditional PET/CT technology. The uEXPLORER has been deployed at the newly established EXPLORER Molecular Imaging Center at University of California, Davis, in the U.S. and Zhongshan Hospital of Fudan University in Shanghai, China.
The newly launched uMR Omega is the world’s first ultra-wide 75-cm bore 3.0T MR, the widest bore in the market, which leads the industry on improving the MR experience. The increased bore size, imaging FOV, and table capacity help better serve broad-shouldered, bariatric, and pregnant patients. As the additional space give patients a first-class experience, the calming light environment also helps reduce anxiety for patients in the enclosed space during a medical exam. In addition, the widest bore size will provide superior positioning convenience for off-center scans such as shoulder, hip, knee, and breast examinations, fully meeting all kinds of clinical needs.
