Yiyuan's X-ray tube rush to infected areas to help fight COVID-19


Since December 2019, the pneumonia epidemic caused by COVID-19 has touched the hearts of the nation. As a diagnostic tool for COVID-19, the CT machine has played an important role in this epidemic, helping to quickly diagnose the status of patients. To ensure the smooth operation of the CT machine, a good "heart" is indispensable. As the core component of CT machine, medical X-ray tube is not only a key component, but also a consumable component. If the CT machine is our gun to stop the virus, then the medical X-ray tube is the ammunition needed by the soldiers in the battle ahead.

Kunshan Yiyuan Medical Technology Co., Ltd. specializes in the development, manufacture and technical services of medical X-ray tube, after several years of hard work, successfully developed a high thermal capacity medical X-ray tube (5.3MHU) with independent intellectual property rights, which has better pressure stability performance and focus stability performance, comparable with the same type of imported tubes. The development of this medical X-ray tubes is also a strong foundation project of the national Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT), and Yiyuan passed the inspection and acceptance organized by MIIT in 2019. In February of the same year, Yiyuan obtained the medical device registration certificate. Up to now, the medical X-ray tube produced by Kunshan Yiyuan Medical Technology Co., Ltd. is being used in more than twenty hospitals in the country, in good condition, and has won the unanimous praise of customers.

"Call for artillery reinforcements!". After receiving the demand information, Kunshan Yiyuan Medical Technology Co., Ltd. immediately organized and arranged the warehouse to prepare the required X-ray tube, and urgently notified the staff who were resting at home to prepare the tools and relevant information to rush to the scene. At 15:00 p.m., the experienced technical support manager and the driver set off for the front line. Although the road conditions were poor on that day, they overcame these factors and drove more than 700 kilometers continuously to reach the hospital at 1:00 on March 2. With a short-handover-confirmation, the X-ray tube was transferred to the CT room of the radiology department of the hospital.





Without resting, they immediately put into the installation and debugging of the new tube, after several hours of repair, the CT machine was restored to normal, and resolved a backlog of several days of approximately 100 patient volumes. The leaders of the hospital were very satisfied with our service and product quality.
