Medical Applications

With advances in health care in both industrialized and emerging markets, huge investments are being made in medical and life science devices that are smaller and faster, but also are more precise and accurate. GSI is helping device makers achieve their goals with the highest performing components in the market today. Whether it is surgical displays with precise color, contrast, and clarity, 3 dimensional laser scanning at 1 micron accuracy, sensing location to 1.2 nanometers, or 800 dpi resolution charting of medical device output with unparalleled reliability, GSI's technology is unrivaled.

GSI serves the medical and life science device industry with six product families:

  • NDS Surgical Imaging is a global leader in designing and manufacturing medical display and informatics technologies. State-of-the-art, medical-grade surgical visualization systems, radiology displays, wireless video transmission and image management solutions have led the way in re-defining the modern surgical operating room, radiology reading rooms, endoscopy suites and minimally invasive environments. Leading medical OEMs and hospitals around the world trust the optical clarity and precise calibration of the best-selling displays in the industry.
  • Cambridge Technology is the world's leading provider of galvanometers and laser scanning solutions for laser beam steering. Ophthalmologic diagnostic equipment manufacturers use Cambridge Technology products to ensure the most accurate laser scanning of the eye, and Computed Radiography system manufacturers rely on Cambridge Technology for the crispest, fastest imaging.
  • MicroE is the world's leading provider of precision optical encoders for location sensing. MicroE provides the smallest encoder with accuracy in excess of a thousand times better than the competition to surgical robot manufacturers, and the most accurate optical encoders for DNA sequencing systems.
  • NDS Thermal Printers is the preferred supplier of chart recorders to the world's leading medical instrument manufacturers for patient monitoring, defibrillation and EKG applications.
  • Continuum supplies research tools for emerging medical applications from laser induced ultrasound for advanced imaging to proton therapy for cancer treatment.
  • Photo Research is a leader in the color calibration of 3D HD visualization systems for minimally invasive robotic surgery, and shade matching in restorative dentistry.
