Jointly unveiled by GE Healthcare and Russian partner Meditsinskie technologii Ltd (MTL) at 6th Baikal Economic Forum, Irkutsk.

GE Healthcare, a unit of General Electric Company (NYSE: GE) and its manufacturing partner Meditsinskie technologii Ltd (MTL) marked a first in Russia’s domestic computed tomography (CT) industry by unveiling the country’s first domestically assembled CT scanner at the 6th Baikal Economic Forum on 7 September. It marks the beginning of domestically produced high-technology healthcare devices to serve patients across Russia.

This breakthrough in Russian healthcare has been made possible by GE Healthcare’s CT technology in partnership with MTL’s manufacturing capabilities. Domestic CT production is consistent with the country’s cornerstone objective of economic modernization and domestic high-tech healthcare development as stated in policy announcements by the Russian government.

The first Russian-assembled and validated CT presents strong business prospects for both GE Healthcare and MTL, as according to estimates, the annual domestic Russian CT market could exceed 1.5 billion rubles (USD 49 million).

Also supporting the GE Healthcare and MTL joint venture is GE Healthcare’s state-of-the-art training center which has been operational in Moscow since 2009. The training center helps to educate Russian medical professionals and improve their skills and experience with high-tech medical equipment. It is a further demonstration of GE Healthcare’s commitment to localization in Russia.

Vyacheslav Grischenko, Region General Manager, Russia & CIS, GE Healthcare says: “Domestic production allows us to price high-tech equipment more affordably for Russian customers. This should increase access to health technology and reduce costs for the healthcare system, fully in line with our global healthymagination strategy to drive improvements in access, quality and cost in healthcare.”

“Our joint-venture with MTL will be able to produce 100 CT scanners per year for the Russian market and meet the Russian healthcare system’s demand for CT,” Grischenko says.

“The CT assembled at MTL’s facility in Moscow is the company’s flagship product,” says Anatoly Dabagov, President, MTL. “MTL currently carries out 25% of the manufacturing, given that we currently use imported parts. Further localization of manufacturing will evolve as local parts that comply with GE quality standards become available.”
