Wipro GE Healthcare is a leading global medical technology and digital solutions, innovator. It has announced the launch of its next-generation Revolution Aspire Computed Tomography (CT) scanner.

Revolution Aspire is an advanced imaging solution designed and manufactured end-to-end in India at Wipro’s newly launched GE medical devices manufacturing plant, in line with union prime minister of India Narendra Modi’s ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat’ initiative. The Computed Tomography (CT) system is equipped with superior imaging intelligence to improve clinical confidence in diagnosing diseases and anomalies.

India currently faces a dual challenge of urban-rural divide and excessive disease burden. Even though a significant proportion of the nation’s population lives in rural areas, most of its high-end health facilities are concentrated in selected large cities. India also excessively depends on imports for higher-end medical products such as various cancer diagnostics and medical imaging tools. With the union government of India emphasizing early diagnosis of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) and self-reliance in this sector, through Ayushman Bharat, there has been an increased demand for advanced medical devices. The Revolution Aspire Computed Tomography (CT) system aims to address this need and enable Accessaccess to quality medical equipment across the country, including tier 2 and tier 3 cities.

The Revolution Aspire Computed Tomography (CT) scanner can empower clinicians with increased operational efficiency and has up to 50 percent higher throughput. The rotation time in the Revolution Aspire Computed Tomography (CT) scanner has been increased by 20 percent, which will enable clinicians to provide faster diagnoses. Along with a significantly improved cooling rate, the scanner also allows a higher rate of continuous scanning and thus can handle higher patient volumes per day. The Computed Tomography (CT) scanner also has a new detector design and algorithm and several innovative features such as a Smart MAR, which enables up to 30 percent improved image quality. Additionally, it provides an intelligent quotient to provide exceptional clinical outcomes, besides reducing radiation dosages for patients and clinicians’ safety.

Dr. Devi Shetty commented, “AccessAccess to healthcare has been deeply asymmetric in India, and innovative medical technology products will help bridge this gap. We are witnessing this change with cutting-edge, locally manufactured, and affordable products such as the Revolution Aspire CT scanner, helping democratize the market, taking quality healthcare to tier 2 cities and beyond. It is critical for all health centers, big and small, to have Accessaccess to quality diagnoses. I applaud Wipro GE Healthcare’s endeavor to empower India’s healthcare infrastructure with this revolutionary product for improved patient care delivery.” She is the chairman and senior consultant cardiac surgeon.

Dr. Shravan Subramanyam asserted, “We at Wipro GE Healthcare are committed to India’s vision of self-reliance. With the Revolution Aspire CT system, we aim to cater to the underserved markets and bridge the access gap to quality healthcare. We look forward to aligning closely with the government and will continue to invest in medical devices ‘made in India, for India, and the world’ and advance our mission of enabling ‘healthcare for all.” He is the managing director at Wipro GE Healthcare.

With an increasing burden on the healthcare sector following the impact of Covid-19, healthcare institutions need advanced medical devices – more than ever before, for faster and more accurate diagnoses. Our new CT is a powerful system that empowers the clinicians as well as the patients with greater efficiency, better results, and higher comfort.” He is the head of imaging at GE Healthcare.
