This includes the Siemens Mobilett Mira, a digital x-ray unit that complements existing technologies to help provide medical experts with less costly x-ray solutions. Other healthcare innovations from Siemens include the Mammomat Inspiration Prime Edition, which reduces the radiation dose in breast cancer screenings.
Siemens is also committed to researching energy efficient technologies, helping to create a sustainable world for the future. In Nigeria and Tanzania, Siemens has created several energy efficient gas turbines, helping with more environmentally friendly fossil fuel power generation.
