Allengers became the first Indian company to manufacture a CT scanner within the country. The CT scanner was launched at IRIA 2020 by Dr Hemant Patel, Past President, IRIA. The 32 slice Made in India CT scanner is manufactured in collaboration with Canon Medical Systems.
Dr Hemant Patel, “The field of radiology in India has advanced tremendously. Today we have the best technologies available to us, but the sad part is that most of these technologies have been imported despite having several talented people in the country. We always wondered that despite having a large quantum of radiology equipment in the country why can’t we have a machine that is manufactured here. Fortunately, under the made in India campaign, the mission started few years. Companies such as Allengers took up this challenge and today they have launched the first CT scanner that made in India. It is a proud moment for us and has a lot of expectations for this CT scanner machine. This CT is going to cost us less and hopes that this will help us reduce the cost of CT scans significantly.”
Just as Dr Patel pointed out, Allengers’s CT will provide a cost difference of at least 10-15 per cent and promises to provide better ROI in the long run. Speaking about the newly launched CT scanner, R S Kanwar, executive Director, Allengers said thatches new CT is a high quality, cost-effective technology. The company intends to further increase the cost difference to about 30-35 per cent. The technology is meant for every radiology department, big and small.”
The low cost, high-quality CT scan is a touch competition to refurbished equipment market.
