This June in Tokyo, an event to mark the 100-day countdown to the opening of Rugby World Cup Japan 2019 was held. Mr. Mitarai, the chairman and CEO of Canon Inc., also serves as the chairman of the Rugby World Cup 2019 Organising Committee, signifying Canon Group’s strong committed to supporting this historic Rugby World Cup, the first to be held in Japan. Many players from the Canon Eagles, Canon's company rugby team, have been selected to play for Japan's national team, and Canon Medical will provide enthusiastic support as a member of the Canon Group.
Diagnostic imaging systems play an important role in the fields of sports medicine and orthopedics, which involve many sports such as rugby and football. It is expected that diagnostic imaging systems (particularly CT, MRI, and ultrasound systems, in which significant imaging resolution improvements have been developed in recent years) will lead to greater precision in the evaluation of muscles, joints, cartilage, and other structures that could not be visualized before. Top-level athletes must always be in peak physical condition, and the latest diagnostic imaging systems are essential in the treatment of athletes who have been injured or who are undergoing rehabilitation so that they can make a full recovery as quickly as possible. The diagnostic imaging systems produced by Canon Medical play a key role in providing the best possible healthcare for the Canon Eagles.
The sentiment "One for all, all for one!" is often associated with the sport of rugby. It is my hope that Canon Medical will fully adopt this team spirit to foster a corporate environment in which all employees work in close cooperation to achieve our shared goals and objectives.
