GE Healthcare is showcasing its portfolio of healthymagination solutions as well as advanced health care technologies that help promote earlier diagnosis and management of lifestyle diseases at a major show in the Kingdom.
The International Conference on Healthy Lifestyles and Non-Communicable Diseases in the Arab World and Middle East is taking place in RIyadh.
Hosting eminent health care professionals from across the world, the conference focuses on the implementation of the UN Declaration on Non-Communicable Diseases in the region.
As strategic partner of the conference, GE is showcasing its advanced range of magnetic resonance (MR) imaging, computed tomography (CT) solutions, ultrasound technologies, life care solutions and modern x-ray equipment, several of them certified under healthymagination — GE’s industry leading initiative to enhance access to high quality health care for more people at lower costs.
The technologies presented are also in line with GE Healthcare’s focus on on preventative health, where the emphasis is on early diagnosis that will potentially make treatment more effective and reduce overall health care bills.
Ali Saleh, president & CEO of GE Healthcare in Saudi Arabia, said: “We are thankful to the Ministry of Health for this opportunity to be a strategic partner in such important health care initiative.”
The CEO said: “With the roll out of healthymagination in Saudi Arabia in 2010, we now place a stronger emphasis on promoting and implementing a healthier lifestyle through proactive diagnosis and early care.”
Among the innovative technologies by GE showcased at the conference are the Wide Bore MR model, the Optima CT 660, the portable VScan ultrasound scanner that requires minimal space for conducting an examination, the MAC 800 ECG system and the mobile X-ray Optima XR 220. All these solutions promote faster and more accurate diagnosis.
These solutions are particularly relevant for Saudi Arabia and the wider Gulf region.
“Through our participation in the conference, we are committed to contributing toward the Ministry of Health’s efforts to increase awareness of non-communicable diseases and to supporting strategies to address them,” said Saleh.
