A consortium of companies headed by Shvabe Holding, affiliated to Rostec State Corporation, will produce 2,500 RuScan all-purpose ultrasound devices each year to supply to healthcare institutions of Russia, including children's clinics. The holding expects to occupy at least 20% of the Russian ultrasound equipment market and partially replace foreign products.
The advanced RuScan devices will compete with Russian and some foreign suppliers, including GE, Philips, Canon, Hitachi, etc.
"Our equipment is on a par with the foreign counterparts, and even outperforms them in certain aspects which makes them competitive both on the foreign and domestic markets. The software of the devices includes the results of Russian population-based statistical studies so that the specialists could rely not only on their own experience, but also on the data collected over many years of clinical practice. Besides, Russian medical doctors will appreciate the Russian language of the interface that has been developed with a contributing aid of leading experts in ultrasound research," stated Oleg Evtushenko, Rostec State Corporation Executive Director.
RuScan devices have successfully passed all the necessary tests to prove their conformity to international standards. The manufacturer provides full guarantee and service support for its product across Russia. Depending on the model, devices are equipped with 21.5" and 19" high-definition LCD screens. The scanners are capable of generating 3D and 4D images and analyse tissue elasticity. The devices can be optionally equipped with special-purpose high-frequency sensors to work both with new-born babies and children aged up to 18.
