Inside view of medical imaging: A $3B vision for WA

Puget Sound Business Journal, August 21, 2014
Washington's medical imaging technology industry is responsible for more than 12,000 jobs in Washington state and has already pumped about $3.1 billion into the state's economy this year, according to a new study. The state's 37 medical imaging technology firms include companies like Bothell medical-device maker Fujifilm SonoSite Inc. that make medical scanners, X-ray equipment and other medical imaging devices. Fujifilm bought the Bothell sonogram company in 2012 for $995 million. Collectively the industry paid Washington workers about $960 million in total wages and benefits.
