The company will be exporting the product to South Asia, North Africa and other international markets.

The product is China’s first 128-slice CT to be exported to the international markets and has independent intellectual property rights.

It also has the highest level of CT equipment.

With the launch of NeuViz 128 CT, the company is furthering its goal of exploring the global high-end CT markets.

Neusoft Medical Systems is credited with developing China’s first CT prototype in 1994 that was later industrialized in 1998.

Currently, China is the world’s 5th largest CT machine manufacturer and exporter, following the US, Japan, Germany and the Netherlands.

Neusoft vice-president Jiang Genmiao said: "As a medical equipment provider, Neusoft Medical Systems set software technology as our core. We have been committed to software and product engineering innovation, and continuously contributing to China’s CT industry in the past years.

"Looking forward, we will make great efforts in innovation and operational excellence, and offer high-quality medical products and services to more people in the world."

Established in 1998 as a wholly owned subsidiary of Neusoft, the company produces a range of equipments such as MRI, X-ray, Ultrasound, Positron Emission Tomography, Linear Accelerator, and In Vitro Diagnostic Products.
