The new tube joins a line-up of replacement x-ray tubes that are available through Varian's Interay x-ray tube aftermarket business. Varian Interay also offers replacement x-ray tubes for CT scanners from Phillips Medical Solutions, Elscint Ltd., and GE Healthcare, as well as diagnostic x-ray tubes for use in imaging systems from virtually all manufacturers, including GE, Philips, Siemens and Toshiba America Medical Systems Inc.
