With a population of over 1.3 billion people, China is one of the largest and most complex healthcare markets in the world. Its pace of technology adoption is increasing exponentially especially with the need to treat such a large throughput of patients. As a result, the drive towards digital radiology in China is a priority for health professionals.
To respond to this demand, Trixell, the Joint Venture between Thales, Philips and Siemens Healthineers*, has launched its newest subsidiary in China: Trixell Medical Devices (Shanghai) Co. Ltd.
