General Electric (GE) agreed to buy diagnostic systems maker Lunar Corp. for $150m. in March 2000. In 2004/05 it seems that the integration process into GE Healthcare has been completed. (GE Medical Systems and Amersham announced in April 2004 the completion of a share exchange acquisition of Amersham Health by GE. The result of this acquisition is the new GE Healthcare, based in the UK, totally owned by General Electric (GE).

The U.S.-based company developed bone densitometers and scanning machines that measure bone density as a way of diagnosing osteoporosis and other metabolic bone diseases. GE Lunar marketed these products worldwide.
GE Lunar announced a distribution agreement with MagneVu for domestic sales of the MagneVu 1000, a portable MRI device for orthopedic use, under the trade name Applause™.
GE Lunar was the exclusive U.S. distributor of MR-devices manufactured by Esaote S.p.A. These compact in-office MRI™ machines are designed to fit all practice sizes in orthopedic imaging and complete the range of diagnostic imaging systems.
