- Superb image quality with high Detective Quantum Efficiency (DQE)The proprietary angiography flat-panel detector offers one of the industry’s highest ratings for Detective Quantum Efficiency (DQE), a parameter internationally acknowledged as an index of detector performance in contrast-and dose-limited imaging performed in clinical studies. High DQE enables better-quality images at the same dose, or the same quality image at a lower dose.
Optimal detector size adds clinical versatilityWith a choice of 2 square panels (20.5 x 20.5 cm (8.1 in), or 31 x31 cm square (12.2 in), we have the size you need to achieve all kinds of interventional procedures.1
Offset C-armWith its unique offset C-Arm, the Innova IGS 6 enables improved access to patient head in complex interventions and helps cover head to groin without moving the gantry.
Clear access to patients during interventionsThanks to the exclusive design of the C-arm, you get unrestricted access to the patient’s head for anesthesia and nursing. In addition, the C-arm design allows you to perform 3D rotational acquisitions of the spine and torso as well as patients’ head while intubated.
One-hand full biplane controlWith the SmartBox, drive with one hand: the frontal, lateral and both planes simultaneously, both detectors as well as the table longitudinal and lateral panning.
Accelerated gantry motions and faster positioningSensors on the frontal plane positions the frontal detector automatically to avoid collisions with patient and the other plane.4
Simple, centralized, automated controlsControl your system and images with integrated, intuitive tableside controls. With simple menus, the Central touchscreen lets you control most system functions, configure the system, modify imaging parameters, control your large display monitor, 1 and manipulate advanced applications – all at the tableside. The comfortable, easy-to-grasp control knob makes it easy to pan the table, position the gantry, and perform procedures.
Lower dose by designGE designs systems from the ground up with the tried and trusted GE imaging chain, optimized to provide the image clarity you need while helping you keep dose as low as possible. Our dose-reduction features empower you to easily optimize and personalize dose settings from the tableside, while maintaining clinical details you need to make well-informed decisions. But improving dose management takes a strategy – what we call the GE Blueprint. It includes low-dose imaging technologies for minimally invasive procedures, but also considers the people, culture and processes around them.
InnovaSenseAdvanced patient contouring technology that uses capacitive sensors to assess movement of the gantry and select the optimal position for the image receptor relative to the patient.1
DoseMapEstimated local cumulated dose displayed for increased dose awareness Display of the distribution of the estimated cumulated local dose all along the exam as well as the current projection of the beam. Alerts at configurable dose thresholds.1
3DCT HD provides fine image details simultaneously on cross-sections and volume rendered to help you clearly visualize vessels, small devices and soft tissues.3
Specific acquisition parameters and automatic artifact reduction algorithms can improves image quality and increase your clinical confidence for each application.
3DCT HD MAR reduces streak artifacts induced by the presence of small metallic devices such as coils or clips within the 3D field of view.6
3DCT HD Motion Freeze1 is designed to reduce artefacts caused by involuntary respiratory motion during the rotational acquisition and recover small detail visibility impacted by motion.6
InnovaSpinThe offset C-arm permits fast-spin rotational angiography over a maximum range of 200° at variable speeds from 20° to 40°/sec (maximum speed of 30°/s from LAO to RAO) with flexible cranio/caudal oblique angulations. The enhanced InnovaSpinTM trajectories are not constrained to a single transverse plane and can be used at oblique angulations within physical constraints.1
Follow the contrast bolus in real time subtracted images, using variable panning speed control, with an easy workflow.
Image pasting to visualize the entire length of the subtracted bolus chase on a single image.5
Off-isocenter imaging capabilityOff-isocenter imaging allows you to see the vessels from two different centering positions with one injection in one fluoroscopic shot. For example, to verify the catheter position, you can simply move the lateral plane off-isocenter without changing or losing your frontal/AP plane position. You can visualize both the origin of the vessel (lateral) and the distal area (frontal/AP) with just one injection and one acquisition.
In clinical use, the results of the application of dose reduction techniques will vary depending on the clinical task, patient size, anatomical location and clinical practice. The Interventional radiologist, assisted by a physicist as necessary has to determine the appropriate settings for each specific clinical task.
