Based on the company’s reliable, high-performance Innova platform, this new configuration offers excellent image quality and dose efficiency at a lower price point and total cost of ownership.

Addressing Key Clinical and Financial Needs
According to the World Health Organization, cardiovascular diseases are the number one cause of death globally. To better serve this growing patient population, many small and medium-sized hospitals in rural areas or small cities are starting to offer interventional therapy while larger hospitals are expanding their existing interventional services and looking to improve efficiency.

Whether in the market for their first interventional cardiology system or an overflow solution, affordability and return on investment are key factors in the buying decision. The Optima 2100-IQ offers excellent reliability and uptime, as well as service capabilities to further optimize the total cost of ownership.

“Presented with a growing number of opportunities to use interventional procedures for diagnosis and treatment, many hospitals are in need of affordable interventional X-ray systems. The Optima Edition offers the quality and reliability from the Innova product, and also focuses on delivering an effective solution to the standard interventional cardiology procedures that many have asked for," said Edward Wong, General Manager - Interventional, GE Healthcare.

Powerful, Flexible Solution to Streamline IC Lab Procedures, Increase Efficiency
Designed to perform as a reliable, easy-to-use workhorse, the Optima 2100-IQ can help streamline procedures such as coronary angiogram and stenting. The compact, floor-mounted, 3-axis gantry allows excellent patient access and can easily reach different positions needed by procedures, and the 20-cm by 20-cm sized flat panel detector is well suited for interventional cardiology procedures.

With the Optima 2100-IQ, affordability does not mean image quality is compromised. Built on GE Healthcare’s refined interventional X-ray system technology, the Optima 2100-IQ features proven image quality and industry-leading detective quantum efficiency to reduce dose exposure for patients and staff. Balancing image quality and dose, clinicians can easily obtain fluoro acquisitions (unsubtracted, roadmap, and subtracted) at 30 fps, 15 fps, and 7.5 fps. They can also easily create a vascular roadmap to better visualize complex anatomy in fluoro mode. Stenosis analysis and left ventricle analysis is also available to enable clinical confidence during procedures.
