The combined system for surgical procedures and catheter-based interventions will consist of the angiography system Discovery IGS 730 (GE) and the Magnus operating table system (Maquet). Both companies will be presenting their integrated solution for the very first time at the Charing Cross International Symposium 2015 to be held between 28th April and 1st May in London.

Versatile solution for efficient use
Besides its high-precision imaging technology, the differentiating feature of the Discovery IGS 730 is its unique mobility. With its laser-guided, mobile gantry, it can be conveniently positioned throughout the OR with high predictability to provide the medical team with full patient access. The Discovery IGS 730 enables to use both left and right customizable parking locations in a single room for an excellent patient access during either left or right access procedures. Its mobile design allows more flexibility in the implantation of ceiling suspended elements such as laminar flow and booms. The Discovery IGS 730 also offers all features of a premium angiography system. It enables high-quality 2D imagery, as well as 3D rotational angiography and multimodality 3D Fusion with outstanding opportunities for minimally invasive therapy.

The Magnus operating table is a full-fledged, versatile OR table that meets all requirements of surgeons and interventional physicians. It has a "floating" function that enables quick and precise movements, during catheter-based interventions. Through the flexibility of different table tops it is possible to expand diagnostic and therapeutic measures for further surgical procedures.

Combination of the gantry mobility of the Discovery IGS 730 and the patient positioning capabilities of the Magnus operating table system should enable use of the OR for multidisciplinary surgical interventions. In addition, thanks to its universal table top, the Hybrid OR can also be used in regular OR programs, thus providing high capacity and utilization rate to the hospital.

“The Maquet table brings additional clinical breadth to the hybrid operating rooms. It should complement GE unique mobile gantry technology that delivers easy-to-use advanced imaging capability and highly flexible siting to fit the needs of virtually any surgery and interventional specialty. This solution should enable hospitals to expand their services to attract more patients and physicians while securing the operating room utilization.” says Chantal Le Chat, Global General Manager Interventional, GE Healthcare.

Setting the trend for the Hybrid OR
"Our collaboration with GE Healthcare has produced several synergies for all parties involved", adds Markus Medart, President of Maquet GmbH. "With the successful collaboration in the field of Hybrid ORs in combination with MR, which began back in the year 2000, this joint development is yet a further milestone in the expansion of our position as global market leader for complete solutions for the OR in the international market." The company is able to look back on some 500 integrated systems over the past years. In addition to planning complex projects, the Maquet portfolio for Hybrid ORs encompasses all products from our own development and production units required to realize the project, from the modular wall system VARIOP to surgical lights, ceiling supply units, anesthesia and heart-lung machines up to full OR Integration.
