Dual Energy Subtraction

Eliminate obstructions from overlying bones, while providing additional information on calcifications in chest and abdomen studies with GE Healthcare's Dual Energy Subtraction. Delivered with the Helix™ advanced image processing chain, x-rays are more consistent despite variations in exposure technique or challenging exam conditions.

Dual Energy Subtraction is available on the Discovery 656HD and the Optima 646HD fixed x-ray systems.

Separate soft tissue and bone structures

Make one acquisition with two exposures at different energy levels in less than 200 milliseconds in chest or abdominal studies.  


Get additional information on calcified structures & foreign objects

Process and view the image as a standard radiographic image, an image with bones “subtracted,” and an image of just the bones to highlight foreign objects or calcified structures.
