GE HealthCare has entered into an agreement to acquire medical imaging firm MIM Software.

GE HealthCare will take over MIM Software’s suite of diagnostic imaging technologies complete with artificial intelligence (AI) powered solutions to expand its diagnostic arm.

MIM’s software allows for services such as the integration of diagnostic images from multiple modalities into treatment plans as well as greater automation as to reduce manual interventions. The move helps to expand GE Healthcare’s grasp on the diagnostic imaging market.

GE HealthCare said it also hopes to integrate with MIM Software’s advanced visualisation offerings to facilitate AI-based segmentation and contouring as well as dosimetry analysis for patients.

Peter Arduini, president & CEO of GE HealthCare said: “We expect our efforts to bring these two complementary organisations and innovative product portfolios together to strengthen our capabilities as a leading provider of integrated imaging systems, analytics, and advanced digital workflows across several care areas and pathways – including Theranostics, radiation oncology, urology, neurology and cardiology.”

Following the announcement of the acquisition, GE Healthcare’s stock value briefly dropped, from $77.17 per share down to $74.46, before rising again to $76. Neither party disclosed the deal sum.
