The Future of GE X-ray System

The 2020 President of the European Society of Thoracic Imaging , Professor Fergus Gleeson, said that clinicians are looking for clinically proven methods to help identify symptoms early and determine which patients are at higher risk of complications and need to be actively monitored. During his talk regarding artificial intelligence, the professor of Radiology at the University of Oxford mentioned a few important factors. He said that the AI can help identify the distinctions in symptoms and enable hospital resources to be targeted to those that will need them whilst in hospital and following discharge. In response to this, GE Healthcare recently introduced its Thoracic Care Suite, a collection of eight artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms to help alleviate clinical strain. The AI suite quickly analyzes chest x-ray findings and flags abnormalities to radiologists for review, including tuberculosis as well as pneumonia.

Because GM Medical is one of the retailers of General Electric equipment, this means that the devices can be easily available to locals within the East African region. The brand boasts of good quality imaging and ensures medical imaging procedures have very low risk and side effects on the patients by improving regularly. The X-ray tube on a GE radiographic system lasts at least 7 years, although the life expectancy depends on the amount of usage. Medical.ke is at the forefront in the radiology market locally by supplying X-ray systems while considering value for money. We do not compromise on quality and will be supplying the machines on the pre-order state, both new and refurbished/used. Looking forward to hearing from you.
