When Bernie Gordon founded Analogic in 1967, his inventions had already made their mark in history. That tradition of inventiveness has continued ever since. Today, Analogic has a long list of innovations and achievements resulting from more than 40 years of developing leading-edge technologies. We are innovators in computed tomography signal processing and a recognized leader in diagnostic medical imaging and security imaging. With over 190 U.S. patents issued, with corresponding foreign patents, and many more pending, our history speaks for itself.
