Fischer Imaging’s roots go back to 1910, when H.G. Fischer, the oldest manufacturer of X-ray imaging devices in the United States, began its operation in Chicago, IL.  Since then, the reputation and name of the company have evolved and gained worldwide recognition in leveraging technology that has brought to market such innovations as the Traumex (VersaRad), Bi Plane Electrophysiology imaging systems, the SenoScan FFDM systems and the Mammotest stereotactic breast biopsy system.  Fischer developed a significant OEM business with companies such as GE, Varian, GEC Picker (Philips), Storz and Dornier Medical.  Now, Fischer Imaging continues its history of developing revolutionary technology with the MammoCAT™-2D and MammoCAT™-3D.
