A global medical imaging OEM trade lobby whose members include the big trade groups from Europe, Japan and North America and which has been around for more than a decade has at last formally incorporated.

DITTA represents the big players across three continents, and its members include the Medical Imaging & Technology Alliance, or MITA; the European Coordination Committee of the Radiological, Electromedical and Healthcare IT Industry, or COCIR; Canada's Medical Technology Companies, or MEDEC; and Japan Medical Imaging and Radiological Systems Industries Association, or JIRA.

These groups in turn represent most medical imaging and radiation therapy manufacturers, from Accuray to Ziehm.

DITTA, which has been around for about 12 years, says its main goal is "improving the global regulatory environment."

"DITTA's coalition of expert members work together with governments and other stakeholders around the globe to promote innovation, improve market access and enhance global competitiveness in the medical imaging, radiation therapy, healthcare IT, electromedical and radiopharmaceutical industries," the group said in its press release.

DITTA's current chair is MITA's executive director, Gail Rodriguez. Nicole Denjoy, COCIR's secretary general, holds the vice-chair spot, while a JIRA senior manager, Mitsuro Tokugawa, and a MEDEC vice president, Klaus Stitz, are association representatives. Zach Helzer, MITA's administration and international programs manager, serves as secretariat.
