The move was approved at a meeting by the company's Supervisory Board and has been planned for the first half of 2018. Siemens Healthineers AG will be established for the public listing.

"For Siemens Healthineers, the public listing is the next logical step and the foundation for expanding our strong position as a leading global supplier of healthcare technology," said Michael Sen, Chairman of the Siemens Healthineers Supervisory Board and the member of Siemens' Managing Board responsible, among other things, for healthcare technology. "Frankfurt is one of the world's largest trading centers for securities, and its importance will continue to increase due to Brexit. As a highly liquid trading venue, Frankfurt is attractive for investors from around the world. The public listing will give Siemens Healthineers entrepreneurial flexibility and access to the capital market. The goal is to grow sustainably and profitably while actively shaping the paradigm shift in the healthcare industry."

"Our preparations for the public listing are completely on schedule. The Strategy 2025 concept and the management team are in place. The legal prerequisites have largely been fulfilled," said Siemens Chief Financial Officer Ralf P. Thomas. "Deutsche Bank, Goldman Sachs International and J.P. Morgan have been engaged as global coordinators, and BNP PARIBAS, BofA Merrill Lynch, Citigroup and UBS Investment Bank as further syndicate banks."

Deep Learning-Based System Detects and Classifies Mammogram Masses
Researchers from the Kyung Hee University have developed a fully integrated computer-aided diagnosis (CAD) system that uses deep learning and a deep convolutional neural network (CNN) to detect, segment and classify masses from mammograms. In a new study published by the International Journal of Medical Informatics, the researchers have described the use of their regional deep learning model, You-Only-Look-Once (YOLO), to detect breast mass from entire mammograms. The researchers then went on to use a new deep network model based on a full resolution convolutional network (FrCN), to segment the mass lesions pixel-to-pixel. Finally, a deep CNN was used to recognize the mass and classify it as either benign or malignant.

Global Medical Robots Market to Reach USD 16 Billion by 2023
The global medical robots market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 21.0% from an estimated USD 6.46 billion in 2018 to USD 16.74 billion by 2023, driven by technological advancements, advantages of robot-assisted training in rehabilitation therapy, increased funding for medical robot research, and IPOs issued by medical robot companies. However, safety concerns over robotic surgery devices are expected to limit the market growth to some extent. Recent studies have found a number of technical difficulties and complications experienced while performing procedures using robotic systems. According to the FDA, from 2000 to 2013, surgical robots have been linked to over 144 deaths, over 1,391 injuries, and 8,061 device malfunctions.
