GE Ultrasound

GE ultrasound was introduced in the 1950's, but the company was started over a century ago. General electric began in 1878 with Thomas Edison's incandescent light bulb. Always the innovator, they made the first central power station where they powered street lights on a grid and serviced the houses in the area. The company made the first radio broadcast, electric toaster, range, refrigerator, and first electric locomotive. They also were involved in the first television broadcasts. The polymers and resins that came from these inventions were also numerous. As the decades passes, General electric helped with development of things like Lexan, a durable, shatter resistant glass-like material used in places where impact was common, like on top of the boards of hockey rinks.

General Electric helped put a man on the moon, invented lasers, and a super magnet that paved the way for magnetic resonance imaging. They continued with microwave ovens, fiber optics, innovations for the mars observer, and of course, ultrasound imaging.
