Customize your cardiovascular environment
GE offers a portfolio of versatile systems for your procedural demands, so you can, in a single click change from a classic angioplasty setting to an advanced atrial fibrillation procedure with the performance you require.
Angiography systems to fit your clinical practice
Our dose-efficient, image-guided angiography systems allow you to scale from diagnostic coronary evaluations and interventions to complex structural heart procedures, from device implants and diagnostic EP studies to complex ablations.
- The Optima* IGS and Innova* IGS single plane and biplane systems are supplied with a choice of 20 x 20 cm (7.9 x 7.9 in.) or 30 x 30 cm panel sizes for maximum versatility while being suited for the procedure you perform. The Discovery* IGS available with the 30 x 30 cm (11.8 x 11.8 in.) detector provides exceptional mobility. The Optima IGS, Innova IGS and Discovery IGS single plane and biplane systems are supplied with a choice of 20x20 cm or30x30 cm detector panel sizes for maximum versatility while being suited for any procedure you perform.
- The 20 x 20 cm detector, for pure cardiac procedures, will give you 38%
more anatomical coverage than the 17.7 x 17.7 cm (7 x 7 in.) detectors available
on the market. For labs performing both peripheral and cardiovascular procedures,
GE offers a 30 x 30 cm detector that provides
greater coverage while still providing the ability to achieve
As part of our GE Blueprint strategy - that helps support your efforts by offering insights and suggestions for integrating your organization’s leadership, practices, and technological resources - GE’s imaging technologies provide the image clarity you need while helping you keep dose as low as possible.
- The high-powered X-ray tube provides a hardened beam that reduces scatter radiation.
- The GE flat panel detector provides the highest Detector Quantum Efficiency (DQE) on the market.
- Spectral filtration is available in several thicknesses and is under automatic system control to help you achieve efficient radiation dose management.
GE offers dose reduction features that empower clinician to easily
optimize and personalize dose settings from table-side, while
maintaining clinical details needed to help make well
- With Dose Personalization chose from five automatic exposure preferences and
four different frame rates down to 3.75 fps to balance the need for image quality
and radiation dose limitations.
- The AutoEx automatic exposure control calculates Equivalent Patient Thickness
after every exposure and streamlines the process of dose setting while maintaining
- InnovaSense* is an advanced patient contouring technology that uses an intelligent
detector to assess gantry movement and select the best position for the image
receptor relative to the patient to reduce radiation exposure.
EP and Hemodynamic recording systems
With a legacy going back more than 25 years GE hemodynamic and EP recording systems provide solutions that optimize workflow and deliver accurate measurement algorithms and excellent signal quality for cardiovascular procedures.
- The Mac-Lab* hemodynamic recording system is the heart of the GE cath lab workflow infrastructure and is designed to make clinicians more efficient, more productive and better able to effectively care for patients. Automatic data collection from the time the patient enters the holding room, though the procedure to recovery help save time and reduce data entry errors. For those complex pediatric cases, Mac-Lab gives you dedicated advanced measurement algorithms.
- With the legacy of Prucka, the CardioLab* EP recording system provides the exceptional signal quality and information to perform complex cases. The pure
signal processing algorithms helps clinicians discern subtle waveform changes
with true bipolar recordings and up to 224 inputs and 128 channels. It’s
a difference you can see – one that may help modify or support your diagnostic.
CardioLab EP recording provides a multi-point connectivity between CardioLab,
Innova IGS, Vivid*Ultrasound and CARTO** 3D mapping systems.
The latter provides synchronized signal data, images and mapping
information for complex EP procedures.
- For institutions demanding more from their labs, the GE ComboLab system
combines the power of the Mac-Lab and the CardioLab into one system, providing
a versatile solution that maximizes lab assets and minimizes service and training
costs. No feautre is compromised; the ComboLab retains the power and capabilities
of the standalone Mac-Lab Hemodynamic and CardioLab EP recording systems.
Advanced visualization designed to help in your clinical challenges
Improve the efficiency of your cath lab and enhance clinical confidence as you plan, guide and assess complex procedures with the GE full suite of advanced applications. Designed to respond to specific clinical challenges, applications are available across a full range of cardiovascular procedures.
- Guide and assess stent positioning and deployment with StentViz technology. StentViz automatically detects both the guide-wire and the marker balls, helping you perform elastic registration while compensating for non-rigid stent deformation during PCI procedures.
- Advanced visualization during structural heart procedures such as localization and guidance of devices is supported with Innova HeartVision that overlays 3D segmented datasets from CT, MR or 3D rotational angiography images onto live fluoroscopic images in a single click. Its image stabilization features
provide a steady 3D reference during complex procedures such as coarctation
procedures and transcatheter valve implantation or replacement.
- Fuse live fluoroscopy, 3D models from rotational angiography, MR and CT
with live fluoroscopy, and intra-cardiac signals from CardioLab with Innova
EPVision 2.0. Add electrical signal information from the CardioLab recording
system using any EP catheter, providing advanced visualization for accessory
pathway procedures without the cost of specialty consumables. Innova
EPVision 2.0 provides 3D localization of devicesnot visualized by magnetic
or impedance-based mapping systems.
