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.

Developed by GE Lunar; the ARTOSCAN™-M is designed specifically for in-office musculoskeletal imaging. ARTOSCAN-M's compact, modular design allows placing within a clinical environment, bringing MRI to the patient. Patients remain outside the magnet at all times during the examinations, enabling constant patient-technologist contact. ARTOSCAN-M requires no special RF room, magnetic shielding, special power supply or air conditioning.
The C-SCAN™ (also known as Artoscan C) is developed from the ARTOSCAN™ - M, with a new computer platform.
