South Korea’s SK telecom (017670.KS) has invested $20 million in Nanox, enabling the Israeli medical imaging company to close a $51 million funding round.

In addition, the company and SK are collaborating to extend accessibility to medical imaging by deploying 2,500 Nanox Systems in South Korea and Vietnam in 2021. The deployment is subject to obtaining regulatory clearances.
