GE Acquires Breast Imaging IT Provider

February 11, 2008 - GE Healthcare acquired Image Diagnost International GmbH, a provider of information technology (IT) systems for the diagnosis of breast cancer, in a move that will expand GE Healthcare's capabilities in breast cancer detection, offering clinicians and national screening services one of the most comprehensive ranges of systems available.

Image Diagnost develops integrated software solutions for mammography workflow and image processing. As the number of hospitals, clinics and screening services using digital mammography increases, there is a significant and growing demand for integrated software solutions to facilitate reporting, storage, sharing and transmission of mammography data. Image Diagnost has developed a suite of software solutions to meet the needs of this growing demand.

GE Healthcare plans to develop the Image Diagnost facility in Munich, Germany, into a center of excellence in breast cancer detection software. The acquisition supports GE Healthcare's our Early Health objective of developing tools to help doctors diagnose and treat disease earlier.

Image Diagnost has filed for FDA approval for its Image Diagnost MammoWorkstation.
