Tomovation has a special focus in all its business activities - medical imaging – and particularly MRI. Currently, the firm holds equity investments in 10 tomography companies. ‘The company is difficult to describe, as it is a playground for new concepts and ideas in MRI service operations, niche-market product development, and financing,’ Dr Friebe said. ‘It has a small sales operation for innovative niche-market products, and owns several MRI and CT imaging centres in Central Europe.’
Refurbished MRI services (and occasionally CT and PET) from de-installation through to re-installation – and everything in between - is provided worldwide via its subsidiary Tomosystems, which is ISO certified and approved by most OEM companies. This company is headed by Stefan Hellwig - an industry veteran - and supported by Bastian Berkel.
The Tomovation group holds over 10 MRI product-related patents and currently is developing devices for image guided surgery (through ITP) and MRI injectors (through Tomoinject), which even work with 7T MRI systems and already have won a prestigious design award.
In coming months, the R&D business will be complemented with dedicated investment activities in tomography start-up firms, to be managed by Oliver Lehmkuehler PhD.
Helped by innovative financing concepts and recently begun shared mobile MRI and PET services, Tomovation itself continues to invest in PET and MRI imaging centres.
