GE Launches New Digital X-Ray Designed for India

January 7, 2009 - GE Healthcare is to launch Tejas DR-F, one of the first digital X-ray systems in India, in reponse to growing use of X-ray examinations in healthcare in the country.

To date, X-ray is still an underdeveloped imaging specialty in India. Although there are an estimated 60,000 X-ray systems operational in India, reportedly only a few systems are truly digital and provide high diagnosis quality. Digital image acquisition supports fast and efficient exam procedures, eliminating time spent in handling film and cassettes, as well as reliability issues inherent in cassette tray systems.

“Digital X-ray machine can aid in better diagnosis as it provides better image quality with lesser artifacts, leaving no room for doubt,” said Rajarshi Bahadur, M.D., of Atulya Healthcare, Chandigarh. “Post processing which is possible only in the case of digital images can further improve the image quality, hence leading to better diagnosis.”

Last year, GE launched the Tejas XR 6000, an analog X-ray upgradeable to digital manufactured in India. The new Tejas DR-F is a digital X-ray system manufactured in India that is price appropriate for the Indian market.
