Discovery CT750 HD, Discovery MR750 and LOGIQ E9 to ensure ‘gentler’ imaging
GE Healthcare, a unit of General Electric Company, has introduced three medical imaging technologies for gentler imaging, which is expected to enable better patient care: the low-dose Discovery CT750 HD, the fast Discovery MR750, and the fusion technology of the Logiq E9.
According to the company, the Discovery CT750 HD, a high-definition computed tomography (CT) provides an improved image with less radiation dose per scan for patients. This new technology is expected to offer up to 83% less dose on cardiac scans and up to 50% less dose across the rest of the body.
The Discovery MR750 is magnetic resonance imaging scanners with accuracy and image clarity compared to previous GE scanners while also improving the overall patient experience.
The Logiq E9, fuses ultrasound images with images from other imaging technologies like CT and MR for extraordinary image quality on all patient body types. With tools and capabilities called volume navigation and agile ultrasound the Logiq E9 is expected to improve workflow and diagnostic confidence for radiology and vascular applications.
John Rice, vice chairman of GE and president and CEO of GE Technology Infrastructure, said: GE has developed technologies that improve the entire patient experience, from early and more accurate diagnosis to better treatment and management of diseases. The Discovery CT750 HD, Discovery MR750 and LOGIQ E9 are setting new technological standards in the early detection and diagnosis of many prevalent health issues. We are excited to bring these breakthrough innovations to help patients around the world.
