GE's affordable CT Scanner is 'Made in India'

Bangalore April 2, 2015:  The  Bangalore-based India centre of   GE Healthcare,   has  developed and taken to manufacture, the first Computerised Tomography (CT) Scan system   which can rightfully claim the accolade, "Made in India".
Called Revolution ACT  (the  'A' is  for Accessible), the CT Scanner  is the result of the efforts of a 50+ team of Indians, working for 4 years  and a development budget of $ 20 million.   In the process GE engineers claimed  10 patents.  Lower radiation dsage, special pediatric settings and a  smaller footprint are other features.
At a selling price of under Rs 10 million, the machine is 40% cheaper than equivalent ( ie 4th generation slice) systems available today  and GE  looks to market it world-wide starting with emerging markets -- not just in India
Said John Flannery, President and CEO of GE Healthcare at the launch event yesterday: “Make in India means much more than local manufacturing for us at GE Healthcare. It is a 360 degree thrust starting with designing and developing relevant solutions in partnership with our users; robust engineering of technologies; developing a world class supply chain, advanced manufacturing, expert user training and developing a network for distribution as well as maintenance of these solutions in the remotest parts of the country and world.   It represents our commitment to work towards making quality healthcare truly accessible and affordable for India as well as the world. “
Added Terri Bresenham, President& CEO of GE Healthcare South Asia:  “We are proud that our first ever locally designed CT technology - Revolution ACTs is developed by the people of India, for the people of India. It is a testament to India’s intellectual, design and advanced manufacturing capabilities.” added.
GE is the first company to manufacture advanced healthcare imaging technologies in India with its first factory set up in Bangalore in 1991. Today, GE Healthcare has three dedicated, world class manufacturing plants in Bangalore with over 400,000 sq. ft of manufacturing space that has produced over 200,000 units of medical technologies for the world. GE has been recognized as the largest medical electronics exporter for 11 consecutive years.
