General Electric Company (GE) is making its way to the very top as it continues the bullish momentum following Biden’s win. Things are starting to get better for the multinational giant. The company overall has improved in all its major sectors during the last quarter after being hit hard by the pandemic.

Recently, one of its major subsidiary’s GE Healthcare announced that it is going to acquire a Swedish start-upPrismatic Sensors AB. The company is investing in specialized photon-counting detectors that reflects GE’s continuing progress in photon-counting CT technology.

The CEO of GE Healthcare, Kieran Murphy highlighted that this technology has the potential to make a big difference in CT imaging that could help millions of patients in the future.

The company is committed to revolutionizing the Healthcare sector. Starting from the first x-ray machines to the first photon-counting CT prototype, GE Healthcare is entering into the most advanced and next-generation technologies. The company is looking forward to this acquisition that will enhance its Deep Silicon and clinical potential.

The healthcare experts believe that Photon counting will become the new standard for all clinical applications where CT is used today. This technology can potentially increase the ability and effectiveness of neurology, oncology, cardiology, and other clinical CT applications.

The CEO of Prismatic Sensors, Mats Danielsson said:

“Our research shows Deep Silicon is the best solution for photon-counting CT to meet clinical requirements.”

GE Healthcare services have largely been in demand due to high volume from the COVID-19 pandemic impact. The company used this medical imaging technology to diagnose lung conditions arising from coronavirus disease.

Last year, GE Healthcare obtained the FDA clearance for a new artificial intelligence-powered X-ray device that helps in reducing the time in detection of the collapsed lung in patients. The company is increasing its dominance in both hospital and lab equipment, and healthcare software segments.

The new X-ray device unit reported $4.5 billion in revenue during Q3 2020.
