HELSINKI, Finland/BUDAPEST, Hungary: As Finland is celebrating 100 years of its independence from the former Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic this year, the Planmeca Group has become an official partner of the country’s celebration campaign and is participating in various projects—especially to promote and support national education and research. Recently, company representatives and Hungarian medical professionals gathered at the Embassy of Finland in Budapest to pay tribute to the latest advances in Finnish health technology expertise and imaging technology.

The Embassy of Finland in Hungary recently commemorated the 100th anniversary of Finnish independence by celebrating the accomplishments of Finnish health technology expertise. In cooperation with the Planmeca Group and the Hungarian Society of Radiologists, Finnish Ambassador to Hungary Petri Tuomi-Nikula hosted a luncheon in honour of Planmeca and Planmed’s medical imaging excellence at the embassy premises in Budapest.

Addressing an audience of Hungarian doctors, Managing Director of Planmed Jan Moed emphasised the importance of research and development for the future of health technology. Moed spoke about the role of the Planmeca Group and Finnish technological expertise in the pursuit of new health care innovations.

“High-quality education, investment in research and collaboration between industry players are the cornerstones of scientific progress. We are living in exciting times as both dental and medical technology is becoming more and more digital. It is extremely important that devices and software work together seamlessly, and this reality is at the core of all Planmeca Group product development,” stated Moed.

Experts present new scientific results

Guests at the event were also addressed by the President of the Hungarian Society of Radiologists, Dr Viktor Bérczi, and the President of the European Society of Breast Imaging, Dr Gabor Forrai. Bérczi began by highlighting the role of international cooperation in scientific research, and Forrai presented new scientific results regarding digital imaging, particularly concerning mammography and tomosynthesis. The keynote speeches were concluded by Dr Mikko Jousi from the Päijät-Häme central hospital in Finland, who showcased the benefits of digital breast tomosynthesis through clinical cases.

The event reinforced the continued cooperation between the Finnish and Hungarian radiology societies. Moreover, the meeting confirmed the significance of information exchange between scientific communities and paved the way for sharing new technologies, research and knowledge between industry operators and specialists, Planmeca stated in a press release.
