Canon takes majority stake in MR coil company, QED

Ohio-based RF coil maker Quality Electrodynamics (QED) has sold a 70 percent ownership interest to Canon. Plans call for it to keep its name and become a consolidated subsidiary of Canon — and stay in its present location in Mayfield Village.

“Now that we can access Canon’s state-of-the-art imaging and electronics technology, it will provide a new platform for QED to keep innovating, which is our lifeline,” said company CEO Dr. Hiroyuki Fujita.

Fujita will stay at the helm and keep his minority ownership stake. He will also become CTO for Canon Medical Systems’ MR Division.

For those who need to move fast and expand clinical capabilities -- and would love new equipment -- the uCT 550 Advance offers a new fully configured 80-slice CT in up to 2 weeks with routine maintenance and parts and Software Upgrades for Life™ included.

Albert B. Ratner, a QED Board member, called the new relationship “a tremendous opportunity for QED and its 175 associates,” and added that the opportunity to remain in Mayfield Village was important because “the State of Ohio and Cuyahoga County have been key to our success.”
