Our Heritage

Canon Medical Systems is born from two global leaders—Canon and Toshiba Medical.

In business for more than 100 years, Toshiba Medical was built to improve the quality of life for all people. It delivered on this mission with medical innovations that are Made for Life—made to improve the lives of patients, clinicians and administrators. Its legacy was built with pioneering medical technology, such as the world's first X-ray machines in 1932 and Japan's first Magnetic Resonance Imaging systems (MRI) in 1983.

Toshiba Medical’s vision was strengthened in 2016 with its acquisition by Canon. Canon entered the healthcare business in 1940 with the development of Japan’s first indirect X-ray camera which was used for the early detection of pulmonary tuberculosis.

The partnership of these two companies (now Canon Medical Systems Corporation), brings together two cutting-edge technology businesses, founded with similar values of creativity, flexibility and patient-friendly healthcare solutions. Today, their combined history of research and innovation drive forward Canon Medical Systems’ vision for building a world-class healthcare enterprise.
