The acquisition of the Allendale, NJ, firm and its IntegradWeb suite of products, will allow GE to expand its offering of IT products and services across all segments of healthcare, according to a release. Potential customers include hospital integrated delivery networks, community hospitals, outpatient imaging centers, radiology group practices, and physician offices.

"Their research and development team is equally impressive, quickly delivering exciting new products to the marketplace, while working on the industry's next-generation solutions."

Dynamic Imaging offers a web-based PACS that scales from the needs of physician offices to academic medical centers. Its products are used in more than 600 sites worldwide.

The acquisition advances GE's strategy to combine early diagnosis and information technology to enable a new "early health" model of care focused on earlier diagnosis, presymptomatic disease detection, and disease prevention, according to the release.
