Bengaluru, Sep 6 (SocialNews.XYZ) AGE Healthcare, a leading global medical technology, diagnostics and digital solutions innovator, GE Healthcare on Tuesday announced the launch of its first 'Made in India', 'AI-powered' Cath lab - Optima IGS 320.
Built at Wipro GE Healthcare's new factory launched under the PLI (production linked incentive) scheme in Bengaluru, the Optima IGS 320, is the first neural network-based interventional image chain, a company release stated.
Dr Shravan Subramanyam, Managing Director, Wipro GE Healthcare said: "Our mission is to move from health care to healthy ageing and that can be accomplished with predictive, preventative, personalised medicine. The rising complexity of patient profiles and shifting disease patterns is making the need of personalized care even more vital and Artificial Intelligence solutions have the potential to transform the patient care pathway.
