Industry Partnership

The CT Clinical Innovation Center was established in 2004 in partnership with Siemens Healthcare, a leading manufacturer of medical imaging systems. The partnership between Mayo Clinic's Department of Radiology and Siemens Computed Tomography Division allows Mayo Clinic investigators and Siemens scientists to work together to develop new technologies, clinical applications and imaging strategies to improve patient care.

To avoid real or perceived conflicts of interest, the relationship between Mayo Clinic and Siemens is managed by Mayo Clinic's Office of Medical-Industry Relations, Office of Conflict of Interest Review, and Mayo Clinic Ventures. Mayo Clinic faculty who participate in Siemens-sponsored projects are prohibited from accepting any honorarium or consulting fees. Industry support is disclosed in any presentations and publications involving Siemens-sponsored research.

Mayo Clinic does not endorse commercial products, and its collaboration with Siemens Healthcare should not be interpreted as such.
