Building on innovative digital flat panel technology and one of the world’s most installed family of all digital interventional X-ray imaging systems, GE Healthcare, a $17 billion unit of General Electric Company, continues the innovation from excellent image quality and industry-leading dose efficiency to introduce new clinical visualization tools - includind Innova Vision and Innova TrackVision-. These tools will allow interventional radiologists to see more than ever before.

“This is an exciting time in Interventional Radiology," says Hooman Hakami, President and CEO, Interventional Systems at GE Healthcare. “These advanced applications enable enhanced visualization and streamlined workflow. This will allow interventional radiologists to focus more on their patients. The result is a more confident team of clinicians and a more efficient IR lab."

Image-guided interventional care innovations at SIR:
Innova® 4100IQ: The Innova 4100IQ is a comprehensive X-ray imaging solution that gives interventional radiologists the tools they need to take image-based diagnosis and minimally invasive therapy to a higher level. The system is now infused with advanced software applications that not only provide precise anatomical detail, but also help simplify and expedite even the most complex and challenging diagnostic and interventional procedures. It is well suited for a wide range of procedures including peripheral, oncological and neurological imaging.

- Innova with Subtracted 3D: Subtracted 3D quickly lets the user visualize vessels without having to remove surrounding bone, tissue and implanted devices and also lets the user easily visualize side-by-side non-subtracted 3D, subtracted 3D or 3D mask images to compare, merge, and analyze complementary images for more interventional information then ever before.

- Innova with Blended Roadmap: It superimposes any DSA or InnovaBreeze™ bolus image with fluoroscopy and streamlines workflow with easy to use controls right at the tableside. It also provides dedicated registration tools such as pixel shifting to quickly correct for patient movement and visualization capabilities such as landscape and vessel visibility that can be separately adjusted during the procedure for improved vessel and anatomy visualization. This excellent dose efficient system continues to potentially reduce dose and use of contrast media by using any previously acquired DSA or bolus image multiple times.

- InnovaIQ Tilt Table: Featuring Smart Tilt, variable-force positioning and fully motorized panning even when tilted, the InnovaIQ Tilt Table brings more flexibility and automation to IR procedures. It helps enhance angio acquisition modes such as multi-segment DSA, Innova Breeze and Instant Mapping. An auto-positioning tool provides repeatable clinical positioning for 2D and 3D acquisitions, and fast transitions from one complex position to another.

Clinicians also gain control of the entire system with fully integrated and highly intuitive tableside controls. This includes the ability to configure the system, modify imaging parameters and perform in-room interactive analysis functions tableside.

Innova® Dose-Efficient X-ray Technology: GE Healthcare introduces innovative dose efficient technology, for its Interventional Radiology products. Powered by the innovative GE AutoEx control system1, it automatically and continuously adapts to help keep image quality and patient dose at optimum levels. The AutoEx System can reduce patient dose by as much as 40% without compromising image quality and is one of the first new-to-market product features validated under GE’s healthymagination initiative, dedicated to improving the quality, access and cost of healthcare.

Innova systems use a flat-panel detector that provides the industry’s highest Detective Quantum Efficiency (DQE), a parameter internationally accepted as the best index of detector performance in the contrast- and dose-limited imaging done in actual clinical studies. High DQE enables better-quality images at the same dose, or the same-quality image at a lower dose.

In addition, AutoExposure Preference Settings let physicians personalize image quality and dose. InnovaSense™ patient contouring further extends dose efficiency, helping to minimize detector-to-patient distance for fast positioning, excellent image geometry, and less radiation exposure.

Innova Vision: Advanced application that allows physicians to perform interventions with confidence. It dynamically overlays 2D fluoroscopic images and 3D models from multiple modalities. It provides 3D imaging with excellent image quality -- providing relevant information during complex procedures.

This fused roadmapping display enables the clinician to support localization and guidance of guidewires, catheters, coils and other devices by visualizing them on a real-time 3D model.

Innova TrackVision: The Innova TrackVision application allows physicians to progress with more information and confidence, specifically for non-vascular, needle based interventional procedures. It provides needle trajectory planning and control right from the Innova Central tableside touchscreen, which is fully integrated into IR workflow for maximum ease of use.

Interventional Visualization: VolumeShare™ 4 multi-modality volume view software is an option for the multi-modality, image review Advantage Workstation™. VolumeShare 4 integrates 3D images from Innova® 3D, Innova CT as well as CT, MR, Pet and PET/CT datasets to enable a number of new interventional visualization functions that are targeted to image-guided interventional therapy. Processing, integration and image overlay are achieved with a single workstation, with a single, convenient user interface, helping to shorten procedure time and improving access to image-guided interventional care.

Veran ig4: Multi-modality navigation system that utilizes electromagnetic localization and image fusion to display an interventional instrument, such as a biopsy needle, an aspiration needle, or an ablation needle, on a computer monitor that also displays a CT-based model of the target organ(s). GE’s Innova imaging systems acquire computerized tomography (CT)-like patient images, which under the terms of the collaboration agreement signed with Veran Medical, can be exported to the Veran ig4 Navigation system in the same imaging suite, during the same interventional procedure. The Innova CT image will be displayed along with a virtual needle over the anatomy to be used for navigation during the procedure. The resulting displayed image will provide navigation information to help physicians insert biopsy needles, ablation (RF, cryotherapy, and microwave) probes and other devices through the skin more quickly and with greater target accuracy.

1-. The AutoEx system is available on Innova® 2100IQ, 3100 IQ, 4100IQ, 2121IQ and 3131IQ X-ray Systems.
