Views: 325

GE Healthcare recently announced the launch of 'Tejas XR 6000' in India – a next generation convertible X-ray system. The new Tejas XR 6000 will be manufactured at GE Healthcare's plant in Bangalore. GE continues to focus on increasing affordability of high-end diagnostic systems to Indian doctors through local manufacturing. GE has rolled out a series of value products under the “In India, for India” program and is expecting to roll out several variants of Tejas X-ray systems during 2008.

X-ray is the primary and most widely used diagnostic imaging tool. However, the X-ray systems currently available in the Indian market are low powered, bulky and employ very old generation technology. The conventional X-ray system cost varies from Rs. 1 lakh to Rs.5 lakh, but compromises on technology, quality & radiation dose. The next level fully digital X-ray systems offer the most enhanced imaging solutions and are available in the range of Rs 1.5 crore
