Greetings, and welcome to Nano-X Imaging Ltd. third-quarter 2020 earnings conference call. At this time, all participants are in a listen-only mode. A question-and-answer session will follow the formal presentation.

[Operator instructions] As a reminder, this conference is being recorded. I would now like to turn the conference over to your host, Bob Yedid with Lifesci Advisors. Please proceed.

Bob Yedid -- LifeSci Advisors -- Analyst

Thank you, operator, and thanks to everyone for joining Nanox Imaging third-quarter conference call. On today's call, we will hear from Rand Poliakine, chairman of the board of directors and chief executive officer; and Itzhak Maayan, Nanox's chief financial officer. Lydia Edwards, president of Nanox USA, will join the team for the Q&A at the conclusion of the management's prepared remarks. Before we begin, I'd like to remind everyone that management's remarks may contain forward-looking statements regarding the company's financial results, research and development, manufacturing and commercialization activities, regulatory process, operations, the impact of COVID-19 on its business and other matters.

These statements are subject to risks, uncertainties and assumptions and are based on the top management's current expectations as of today and may not be updated in the future. Therefore, these statements should not be relied upon as representing the company's views as of any subsequent date. Factors that may cause such a difference include, but are not limited to, those described in the company's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. We will also refer to certain non-GAAP financial measures to provide additional information to investors.

A reconciliation of non-GAAP to GAAP measures is provided in our press release, with the primary differences being stock-based compensation expense adjustments. With those prepared remarks, it's my pleasure to turn the call over to Nanox's chairman and CEO, Ran Poliakine. Ran?

Ran Poliakine -- Chairman and Chief Executive Officer

Thank you very much, Bob, and thank you, everybody, joining our first quarterly conference call as a public company. It's very exciting times. As Bob mentioned, also joining me on the call this morning is Itzhak Maayan, our chief financial officer. Lydia Edwards, our president of Nanox USA is also on the call and will join us for the Q&A session.

Now on August 25, we closed a very successful initial public offering, including the full exercise of the underwriters' option, which creates gross proceeds to the company of approximately $190 million. This transaction, which was a result of tireless work on behalf of the entire Nanox team, together with the successful crossover financing round that closed in July, provides capital for Nanox to continue to execute on our vision: To increase early detection of medical conditions that are discoverable by X-ray and significantly expand access to medical screening globally. Our investors include strategic partners, such as SK telecom, Foxcon and Fuji film, as well as new institutional investors that share and support management's long-term vision of the company. Now, let's talk a bit about the need.

So the market needs. So we founded Nanox to address a significant unmet need in medical imaging. There has been a lack of meaningful innovation in legacy analog X-ray systems since the invention by Wilhelm Rontgen more than 120 years ago. High end X-ray products are very expensive and complex, resulting in machines that are very expensive to purchase, maintain and operate, not to talk about the large, very large footprint.

In short, these machines are too costly and complex for mass global deployment. As a result, it is estimated that approximately two-thirds of the world population has no meaningful access to medical imaging. While the remaining one-third often experience long waiting time. There is a significant missed opportunity here, and we decided to pursue it.

Since access to medical imaging allows for early detection of serious disease such as cancer and cardiovascular failures when they're more treatable, early detection has the potential to drive improved patient outcome and reduce cost to healthcare systems around the world. I'm going to talk a bit about Nanox Arc. Nanox Arc is one of the components of our system. And with Nanox ARC, we developed a novel digital X-ray source that we believe addresses the drawbacks of the current technology and will enable a new class of medical imaging system that can be produced at a significantly lower cost than existing systems.

Our technology [inaudible] in field emission technology or field emission display, which was originally developed by Sony in Japan. After investing substantial financial and human resources for over a decade, it successfully developed this technology for the television industry. Sony sees development of this project in 2011 about and Nanox acquired the underlying know-how for the FED technology in 2012. We retained the original development team from Sony and spent over 8 more years developing a digital X-ray source for the medical imaging industry that could be produced on a commercial scale.

So what we are talking about is the very deep and proprietary technology that took years and substantial R&D investment to bring it to its current standards. This technology is protected by patents that have been granted to Nanox. Based on our digital X-ray technology, we are developing what we believe is a new breed of medical imaging device that we'll call the Nanox Arc. The Nanox Arc is a low-cost machine manufactured at a fraction of the cost of the current imaging equipment that will potentially revolutionize global availability of medical imaging.

Our Nanox Arc is a full-body, multipurpose tomosynthesis X-ray system that we believe is capable, once approved by the applicable regulatory bodies, of delivering medical imaging for a wide range of clinical procedure inside and outside of hospitals and large imaging centers. With that, I want to switch gears into the Nanox cloud, which is the other part of the system. In addition to the significant lower cost and reduced size of Nanox Arc versus existing X-ray machines, another key advantage of Nanox Arc is its seamless integration with the Nanox cloud, our purpose-built cloud-based platform that seamlessly connect Nanox Arc with a medical professional to review and interpret images. Radiology diagnostics are a significant bottleneck in providing early detection because there are not enough licensed radiologists to review and analyze scans, and in most cases, licensed radiologists are not located in close proximity to the imaging devices.

To avoid potentially magnifying the bottleneck with the deployment of the first wave of Nanox Arc system, we developed the Nanox cloud to connect third-party radiology diagnostic services to the Nanox Arc and provide, potentially, billing control, among other features. Images captured by the Nanox Arc are transmitted through the Nanox cloud safely and securely to radiologists, and enables connectivity to AI-driven systems, which can provide an initial analysis and decision assisted information to those radiologists. With the Nanox cloud, hospitals and doctors would also be able to get a real-time access to medical imaging scans, which would have the potential to facilitate timely patient care. The Nanox cloud is essential backbone of our Nanox imaging system, and it's expected to be HIPAA- and GDPR-compliant, and interoperable with existing medical system via API, which is application programming interface to other devices.

With that, I wanted to touch upon a bit of what happened during the third quarter in Nanox following the IPO. So turning now to the recent development at the company. Of course, the key element is to execute our strategy. So to do that, we further strengthened both the leadership team and the board of directors.

First, we were pleased to announce that Mr. Park, CEO of SK Telecom, has joined our board. SK Telecom is a global leader in the development and manufacturing of semiconductor. They are both an investor in Nanox, as well as a strategic partner.

In addition to our collaboration agreement with SK to deploy 2,500 Nanox Arc systems across South Korea and Vietnam, we are currently working to establish a fully owned Korean subsidiary that will focus on scaling up production of the Nanox X-ray source semiconductors while leveraging SK's deep expertise in the area of semiconductor. Mr Park's insights and guidance will be invaluable as we establish and grow our footprint, particularly in Asia. Furthermore, in September, we announced the appointment of Gilad Yron, our chief business officer, in this newly created role. Gilad will play a lead role in executing our existing MSaaS Agreement, medical screening-as-a-service, while in parallel, refining the company's commercial strategy and overseeing customer-facing activities.

Gilad brings to Nanox team extensive experience leading high-tech organizations and rounds up what I believe is a world-class team capable of realizing our vision for the company. Also, since our IPO, we signed agreements with SPI Medical to deploy Nanox Arc units in Mexico and Guatemala, and Ambra Health, a leading medical data and image management cloud software company, to facilitate the transfer of medical images between U.S. hospitals and medical imaging providers. Itzhak will provide more details on this agreement in a moment.

Now let's talk about regulatory. At this point, I would like to provide a brief update on the regulatory approval process. Recall that in January 2020, we submitted the 510(k) application to the FDA under its third-party review program for a single source of Nanox version of Nanox Arc. In March 2020, we received a request for additional information from the third-party reviewer, which responded too in September 2020.

Nanox is working to continue to optimize and develop additional features in the Nanox Arc, and we plan to submit an additional 510(k) application for the multi-source version of Nanox Arc in the coming months. The multi-source version of the Nanox Arc will be the imaging system that we will seek to commercialize with our partners. We currently expect to receive FDA clearance for the multisol system by mid-2021 which would allow us to deploy our first machine during the second half of 2021 in the U.S. and in other countries.

We anticipate that the Nanox Arc imaging procedures in the U.S. will be covered by existing radiology CPT reimbursement code. In parallel, we remain on track to submit the multi-source version of the Nanox Arc foreseen market approval by the first quarter of 2021 and anticipate possible clearance in the EU next year as well. Now, I know that everybody is very interested to hear about the RSNA.

So before turning the call over to Itzhak to review a few financial highlights, I would like to remind you that we intend to conduct a live demonstration of our technology at the upcoming annual meeting of the Radiology Society of North America. This year, the RSNA A conference will be a virtual medical meeting held from November 29 to December 5. At the meeting, we will demonstrate live our digital election technology in a range of 2D and 3D medical imaging procedures. This session will be followed by lecture and presentation of clinical applications of Nanox Arc system by well-known radiologists and company distribution partner.

We intend to make this material available to our investors and global stakeholders so they can join and witness our technology. At this point, I will turn the call over to Itzhak to discuss the market, competition, our business model and financials. Itzhak, please.

Itzhak Maayan -- Chief Financial Officer

Thank you, Ran. So let's turn to the large market that's now finishing its full swing. The estimated size of the X-ray based medical energy market is approximately $21 billion. And to a large extent, it is dominated by many large multinational organizations, including GE, Philips and Siemens.

So one may wonder how could a small company such as ours can compete effectively. Our strategy is to expand the medical imaging market so that we are not competing with and do not intend to take away market share from those existing players, but instead, we intend to increase the size of the pipe. The existing dominant players in the medical imaging market primarily target hospitals and large medical imaging centers. We intend to target other places that deliver healthcare services that are not able to afford expensive medical imaging systems, such as urgent care units and outpatient clinics and countries where most of the population does not have meaningful access to medical imaging because there are simply not enough imaging machines.

We are ultimately offering availability and affordability with the Nanox Arc. We will aim to target many healthcare providers who do not have medical imaging capabilities, and thereby increase the size of the market while avoiding head-to-head competition with the big players in the market that already exists. A distinct advantage of Nanox is our flexible business model. The ANSYS model allows healthcare providers to pay on a per scan basis, avoiding the significant upfront capital expenditures, sometimes measured in millions of dollars per machine that are associated with legacy X-ray technology.

Even with the guaranteed minimum services fees that are included in our customer contracts at 7 scans per day and $40 per scan to Nanox, the initial outlay is far from the Nanox system than the conventional X-ray machine. We believe that this financial model is critical to our vision to increase early detection of medical conditions that are discoverable by X-ray by eliminating the significant upfront capital cost of X-ray systems as the barrier to broader adoption while providing growth and value to our shareholders. To that end, it is our goal to globally deploy 15,000 Nanox Arc units by the end of 2024. We are very pleased with the significant progress we are making toward this goal.

We've contracted deployment of 5,150 systems with 9 service providers in 13 countries, contingent about regulatory approval, customer acceptance and other factors. During the third quarter of 2020, we signed an initial seven-year MSAs agreement with SPI Medical to deploy 630 Nanox Arc units across Mexico and Guatemala. SPI distributed specialty pharmaceutical products and medical devices across Mexico and most of global health imaging leaders such as Philips, GE, Siemens and Toshiba. Using the contractual minimum of seven scans per day at $14 per scan payable to Nanox, this contract is expected to generate minimum annual service fees of $17 million to the company once all systems are deployed and upon obtaining the necessary regulatory approval and additional contractual terms.

In addition, we signed strategic collaboration agreements aiming to deploy an additional 5,500 units in the U.S., Korea and Vietnam using our MSAS business model. Subsequent to the end of the third quarter, we announced an agreement with Ambra Health, a leading medical data and image management cloud software company to facilitate the transfer of medical images between U.S. hospital and medical imaging providers. Ambra will serve as the enterprise image exchange solution, integrated with planned U.S.

Nanox Arc deployment via the Nanox cloud infrastructure. The Ambra suite consolidates multiple imaging system into a cloud storage platform that lets medical imaging be accessed securely anytime anywhere. Leading facilities use Ambra to connect directly to multiple modalities and imaging systems, creating unified sort of imaging data that is accessible to providers and patients. Ambra is the ideal partner for Nanox as their solution perfectly complements the Nanox Arc and Nanox Cloud.

In summary, over the past year, we were able to form what we believe is a very strong coalition of strategic partner, service provider and AI technology partners that share our vision and our go-to-market initiatives. Now for the financial review. On August 25, 2020, we announced that we had closed a very successful initial public offering of 10.5 shares of our ordinary shares at $18 per share. The net profit of the offering to the company after underwriting discounts and commissions and related expenses were approximately $170 million.

This included the full exercise of the underwriter's option. We want to express the appreciation to the high-quality healthcare dedicated and general investment funds in the U.S., Europe, Asia and Israel that became shareholders in Nanox. The Nanox offering was one of the top five largest fuel medtech IPOs completed since 2015 on the NASDAQ. Together with profit from the earlier crossover funding run, we ended the third quarter of 2020 with cash and cash equivalents of approximately $240 million and with no debt.

We believe our current cash is sufficient to fully execute on our plan of manufacturing, shipping and installing 15,000 Nanox Arc system globally, while continuing to expand our delivery capabilities and invest in our clinical and product road map. Highlighting a few key financial statement items. Non-GAAP net loss attributed to ordinary shares for the third quarter of 2020 was $5.1 million compared to non-GAAP net loss of $1.9 million in the prior year period. A reconciliation between GAAP net loss and non-GAAP net loss for the 3-month period ended September 30, 2019 is provided in the financial results that are part of the press release we issued this morning.

The difference between GAAP and non-GAAP net loss to ordinary shares is mainly due to share-based compensation. Non-GAAP research and development expenses for the third quarter 2020 were $1.5 million as compared to $0.4 million for the comparable period in 2019, reflecting the increased development activities of our Nanox system. Non-GAAP marketing expenses for the third quarter of 2020 were $0.5 million as compared to 0.5 million for the comparable period in 2019 as we continue building our brand awareness and product marketing capabilities. Non-GAAP general and administrative expenses for the third quarter 2020 were $3.1 million as compared to $1 million for the comparable period in 2019.

And we ramp up our investment in expanding our management team and the overall organization infrastructure, in addition to increased cost related with the company's IPO. Net cash used in operating activities during the quarter were $3.4 billion. As of September 30, 2020, we had approximately 45.6 million shares outstanding. We want to make investors aware that we will be participating in several upcoming virtual conferences, including the Berenberg CEO conference on November 12, the Jefferies London Healthcare Conference on November 17, and the Canaccord 2020 Medical Technologies Diagnostic Forum in November 19.

We hope to have the opportunity to meet you virtually, of course, at one of these events. We would now like to open the call for questions. Ron and I will be joined by Lydia Edwards, president of Nanox USA. Operator, please start the Q&A session.

Questions & Answers:


Operator

Thank you. At this time, we will conduct a question-and-answer session. [Operator instructions] Our first question comes from Suraj Kalia with Oppenheimer.

Suraj Kalia -- Oppenheimer and Company -- Analyst

Good morning, Ran. Good morning, Itzhak. Can you hear me all right?

Ran Poliakine -- Chairman and Chief Executive Officer

Absolutely.

Itzhak Maayan -- Chief Financial Officer

Yes, we can.

Suraj Kalia -- Oppenheimer and Company -- Analyst

Perfect. So Ran, a bunch of questions. On the 510(k) application for the single source, I know it's just been a few weeks. When do you expect any feedback from the FDA, if at all?

Ran Poliakine -- Chairman and Chief Executive Officer

I mean, from our point of view, our expectation is that in the very, very strong, in a matter of weeks, actually, we will hear something from -- through the third-party evaluator. I think in the FDA matter, it's very hard to predict. So I would say that we feel that we completed our submission, and we answered the additional information in a good manner. And therefore, the feedback should be coming soon.

But of course, we cannot know that for sure.

Suraj Kalia -- Oppenheimer and Company -- Analyst

Got it. And Ran, the devices to be commercialized by your partners are multi-source. When do you all expect to provide prototypes to your partners for their individual review?

Ran Poliakine -- Chairman and Chief Executive Officer

Yeah. So in terms of process, as we speak right now, we are assembling about 10 of those devices in Israel. Those devices will need to go through ruggedized test right now. And we will conduct some tests but also will impact the submission of the FDA like safety and other type of test.

Once this will be concluded, we will ship some of the devices to our partners in order for them to be educated by Nanox Arc and get training of how we operate it. All of that should be done as soon as those testing will get done, which is in the coming, I would say, months.

Suraj Kalia -- Oppenheimer and Company -- Analyst

Got it. And Ran, I'll have two final questions, and I'll let others jump in then. The ceramic tube, can you give us a status update on the ceramic tube? That is first. And the second -- and the last question, at least from my side, Ran.

Obviously, there has been a lot of speculation on the viability of the platform. At your RSNA live demo, what is the one thing that you would advise investors and skeptics per se and say, "You know what? Have a look at this. This is what the core competency that we bring. And this is, in essence, going to be a paradigm shift you need to watch out for.

" Thank you for taking my questions.

Ran Poliakine -- Chairman and Chief Executive Officer

OK. So I mean, as you know, I think the tubes are being made by glass and ceramic. We are on our way to actually produce the ceramic tubes, getting ready to a serial production so we can ship a lot of them. That's happening mainly in Korea, and that's going well.

In terms of skepticism, I think it's not my role to tell skeptics on what they -- how to assess. I do believe seeing is believing. We do have a solid technology. We believe that we are going to demonstrate our technology and explain the differences between our technology and the analog technology.

And it should, I believe, provide a lot of comfort because you can see the device. You can see it's taking images. You can see some radiologists talking about it. And overall, again, seeing is believing.

So that's why we're going to feed live from one of the prominent places initial here. And I think and I hope that, that will be a good demonstration of Nanox technology and the platform that we are building.

Suraj Kalia -- Oppenheimer and Company -- Analyst

Thank you.

Operator

Our next question comes from Steve Halper with Cantor Fitzgerald. Please proceed with your question.

Steve Halper -- Cantor Fitzgerald -- Analyst

Hi. Two questions. So in terms of the FDA single-source submission, how important is that relative to the development on the multi-source, whether it's the prototypes or the next application? And then on an unrelated question, could you just talk to us about where you stand with Foxconn and your ability to -- or their ability to ramp up assembly of the Arc devices, assuming you get the multi-source approval.

Ran Poliakine -- Chairman and Chief Executive Officer

OK. Thank you, Steve. Well, I think that the single-source, multi-source is part of the one strategy, where we bring our X-ray stores, which is a novel thing, and put it in a device at the predicate. It's not a precondition for the multi-source, but we felt that while we had the single-source, it was a good idea to take it through regulatory path, alongside with the multi-source, but it's not a precondition that one will stop the other.

So that's kind of as to the strategy there. And what was your second question? I'm sorry, Steve?

Steve Halper -- Cantor Fitzgerald -- Analyst

Ramping up production from Foxconn to the Arc devices.

Ran Poliakine -- Chairman and Chief Executive Officer

Yeah. So Foxconn is fully on board. We have routine meetings, engineers to engineers. It's important to them, all the way to the chairman of Foxconn.

Our supply chain management and R&D are based in Korea and Israel, as you know. They're working very, very closely with Foxconn. The next step for them is for us to complete in Israel the 10 prototypes that would also go through regulatory clearances while ramping up production. I do not expect any big issues in terms of ability to ramp up so that we can deliver the expected quantities in the second half of next year.

Steve Halper -- Cantor Fitzgerald -- Analyst

Thank you.

Operator

Our next question comes from Ravi Misra with Berenberg Capital.

Ravi Misra -- Berenberg Capital -- Analyst

Hi, Ran, Itzhak. Thank you for taking the question. First, on the commercial strategy. Can you just walk us through how you guys go about identifying some of the partners and how that process plays out in terms of how long it takes and kind of what is the back and forth that you have between some of these customers?

Ran Poliakine -- Chairman and Chief Executive Officer

Sure. Itzhak, do you want to take this one?

Itzhak Maayan -- Chief Financial Officer

Yeah, absolutely. And it's a really good opportunity to speak a lot of those service provider because we feel that we had a very good process of selecting partners that both have the experience as well as the capabilities of taking our offering to their respective market. And it's important that will give some very visible examples, OK? So we were speaking about a 1,000-unit agreement that we have for the market of Australia, New Zealand, Norway. That came with -- given with The Gateway Group.

And Gateway Group is one of Australia's largest independent product distributor, as you know. And they only distribute things like health, wellness, medical supplies and devices, and they reach over 20,000 locations with presentation of medical device. And so they're bringing very good experience, very good presence in that particular market. And that's a three-year deal for 1,000 units.

Another good example is a company by the name of Promedica, and that's for the Italian market. Promedica is a very interesting company that already provide more than 25 years of experience, representing the agnostic imaging vendors such as the Fujifilm, Siemens Medical, GE Healthcare and so forth. And they also manage commercial strategic activities for multinational companies in the -- for the marketing of systems such as the MR-guided focus ultrasound, a company by the name of [inaudible], but there aren't many familiar with, a robotics system, interventional radiology procedures such as ICL. So those are only two examples, or I can speak more.

So if I need to summarize my answer to your question, we are looking for service providers that both come with in terms of accessibility to the market, they come with strong capabilities and most importantly, believe in our vision. And they come to Israel. All of them came to Israel. They've been to our demo, they played with the device, they've seen the prototype, and they came to recognition that in terms of the development stage of our device, they feel extremely comfortable that it will collaborate and altogether in their respective markets, bringing this MSAs model on a per scan basis, by per scan basis will be extremely successful.

Ravi Misra -- Berenberg Capital -- Analyst

And then maybe on Ambre Health and just the infrastructure build that's ongoing right now. Can you maybe help us understand how you perceive the end-to-end chain and kind of where the weak points are? Not necessarily weak points, but where the gaps are that you need to continue to build out similar to the Ambra Health and U.S.A. Rad partnerships? Like what other work needs to be done here. Maybe, Lydia, if you could take that one, or Ran or anyone?

Ran Poliakine -- Chairman and Chief Executive Officer

Yeah, Lydia. No, no, I think Lydia can give a good perspective on the U.S. market. Lydia, please.

Lydia Edwards -- President of Nanox USA

Thank you, Ran. So as far as the role USA rad will play in our collaboration, it's pretty simple. The goal of that business agreement is to have USA rad usage showing presence in the U.S. teleradiology market as well as the standard radiology market to deploy our systems.

It's a strong partner for us, 25% owned by Siemens, which in and of itself, gives it a professional component. The deal with USA Rad is non-exclusive and is part of the partnership USA Rad going to perform the radiology services, which would be our Nanox cloud-based platform. And based on the fact that their customers have a really -- I'm sorry, their teleradiologists have a huge presence in the United States, we can use that to build out our sales structure. Now, as far as Ambra Health and in terms of the agreement, Ran, do you want to take that? Or do you want Itzhak to take that, or --

Ran Poliakine -- Chairman and Chief Executive Officer

Yeah, Itzhak will take this.

Itzhak Maayan -- Chief Financial Officer

As we explained to before, when this is a very strong piece of the overall offering. You focus about the entire platform. I think the Nanox travel, best way to describe it, that this is a very important switchboard over the cloud that really connects an end-to-end offering that includes, obviously, the service provider, the one with providing the images on the ground using our Nanox Arc. It connects AI technology partners that is able to provide early annotation to the images, obviously, provide accessibility to the right geologies who are enabling the agnostics of the images.

And the arborization also provide the connectivity back to the hospital, especially in the U.S., back to the patient medical file, in case this is necessary. So what we are currently enabling is really an end-to-end suit of services that is allowing an end-to-end solution to the different service provider.

Ravi Misra -- Berenberg Capital -- Analyst

Great. And then maybe one last one just on RSNA. Did you guys announce what day the presentation would be on? And then just following that conference, can you help us understand a little bit more? I appreciate the demo units that you're giving to your partners. But in terms of the clinical build-out, is there any other kind of study or partnerships with hospitals or universities that you're willing to announce here in terms of how to build out more of the usage and the conversation around that aspect of the device?

Ran Poliakine -- Chairman and Chief Executive Officer

Yeah. So I think, first of all, in terms of our RSNA, this is really -- it's a commercial conference that, normally, companies are attending to. So like any conference, we're going to have some materials on our science, on our technology. We're going to have some videos of our clinicians, explaining what we're trying to do.

We're going to have -- we have partnership with the Duke University. So we're going to -- hopefully, someone from there will explain the project that we are running together with them. We're going to have a full technology demo, explaining the chip and then the cube and the one system multi-source and the way to acquire images. We're going to show a bit of the very, very unique geometry.

We have -- or we could have in order to create reconstruction images that are very, very -- that are very accessible to radiologists. And all of that is part of the normal business. When do you go to such a trade show. Now we are going to reach out to the big guys.

We are already in touch with many of the medical healthcare companies because we believe that our source can be used also for their usage. So we believe that Nanox is an under LA technology should interest then. And I can confirm that we do have many dialogues with many of the big companies other than Fuji that, of course, we announced. So we're going to do that.

We are going to reach out to service providers, our website and our Chief Business Officer is flooded with many, many companies from different countries that believe in our vision and trying to offer their services or their health under the MSAs model. So all of these activities are going to be through the RSNA as well as the live demo, which is basically going to be a combination of technology and clinician. So we're hopefully going to have on-site in Israel, top radiologists actually for America, that are going to explain what we see. And that's something very strong because it's actually connecting the dot between technology and clinician.

So that's for the RSNA. And I think going back to one of the questions before about skepticism, again, seeing is believing. We believe very much in our technology. We know what we have, and we know that from underlying technology, it really can disrupt the way people are doing this type of thing for the future.

Now in terms of collaboration, as you know, we do have collaboration with a few university hospitals in Israel and elsewhere. And I do believe that you are very strong advisory board members, some of which coming from Stanford, Duke University in the U.K., we have very, very strong also in Korea. We are working on a road map of utilizing and examine nonox technology in different clinical settings. And that's something that is coming.

It's an ongoing effort. And I believe that when we have news to that end, we're going to introduce it. So that's about -- that's the answer to your question, Ravi.

Ravi Misra -- Berenberg Capital -- Analyst

Yeah. Great. I appreciate that level of detail. Look forward to speaking to you in a few days.

Ran Poliakine -- Chairman and Chief Executive Officer

Thank you.

Operator

At this time, there are no further questions in queue. I would like to turn the call back over to Mr. Ran Poliakine for closing comments OK.

Ran Poliakine -- Chairman and Chief Executive Officer

Well, that concludes our call this morning. We hope that we are effective and conveying our enthusiasm for the opportunity that lies in front of us as a potential disruptor in the field of medical imaging, and we look forward to providing updates on our progress along the way, including the conferences that Itzhak mentioned and our year-end update. Thank you, again, and have a good day.
