Siemens – SIE (P1) is one of the world’s largest suppliers to the healthcare industry and a trendsetter in medical imaging, laboratory diagnostics, medical information technology and hearing aids. Siemens offers its customers products and solutions for the entire range of patient care from a single source – from prevention and early detection to diagnosis, and on to treatment and aftercare. By optimizing clinical workflows for the most common diseases, Siemens also makes healthcare faster, better and more cost-effective.

With nearly 3,000 employees worldwide and being responsible for more than 7 percent of Siemens´ total R&D expenditures, Corporate Technology plays a key role in R&D at Siemens. Corporate Technology (CT) has several teams in Brasov. The CT Image Algorithmics group from Braşov is working e.g. on optimized image interpretation and computational models for healthcare. This team is part of a department at Siemens Corporate Technology headed by Dorin Comaniciu.
